Janice was just seventeen years old when she first decided to live at the Greenham Common peace camp, abandoning her ‘A’ level college courses to do so. She lived at the camp between 1986 and 1987, first at violet gate and then moving to orange gate. She was arrested and charged four times for her role in the non-violent direct actions and spent time in Holloway. She remembers frequent evictions, vigilantes, and living at the camp through freezing weather conditions, but still describes being extremely happy there.

Janice was interviewed by Jo Liptrott in Essex in 2019.
