Famously known Beatles song ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ was in the progress of being recorded. Written by the iconic John Lennon, inspiration for the song came from his 3 year-old son, Julian, who one day brought home a drawing from school. In the drawing, was a little girl in the sky, with stars surrounding her all around. The little girl in the drawing was said to be friend – Lucy O’Donnell, who also lived in Weybridge, attending the same school as Julian.
