Mima Borwick, Longside, was a unique character. A small,
friendly woman, she would produce a small black bag full of
songs, stories, jokes, a parody or a traditional song, and
perform it with verve and humour. Often heard at the Longside
Folk Club, when finished washing the local football clubs
uniforms, she had material old and new, funny and serious.
