She’s lived all over the world, but serial mover Orina Wyness has fond memories of her childhood home on the Fylde coast.

Orina, 80, has hit the national headlines for moving 60 times – and there’s still another house move on the cards.

The first time she moved house was at five-years-old, when her family moved to Anchorsholme from Yeadon in West Yorkshire.

Orina said: “I remember it fondly. I had a happy childhood there.

“We lived in a very good and close-knit community.

“All the children grew up together and after we’d been to the youth club we’d walk along the Promenade singing all the latest pop songs.

“It was just a really good place to grow up.”

Orina, whose maiden name is Dennison, went to Norbreck School and later Blackpool Tech art school before joining the Wrens when she was 18.

It was while she was in the Navy she met her husband, Roy, who she married in 1955.

Since then they’ve upped sticks 60 times, living around the UK and Australia, Brittany and Gibraltar because of Ray’s Naval commitments and the couple’s passion for exploring new places.

The longest they’ve stayed in one place is seven years.

In 1970 they returned to Blackpool, and set up home in Cleveleys for a year before moving to Inskip. The couple now live in Leominster, Herefordshire, but plan to move to Gloucestershire soon.

Orina said: “We’ve said it’ll be the last time so many times. We probably will up sticks again.”
