Some of our friends .....
How could I resist the temptation for a rogues gallery?!
|Tim & Wanda and their two children Ava, and Bill have known Alan for many years. They are now my good friends too and although they have now moved to Yorkshire, we still hope to see them regularly.|
Here is Mark with Tim & Wanda in June 2001 at a birthday celabration for Phylis Marszalek who is pictured below.
This is Pat Macaulay (left) and Jane Guthrie nee Fox, at my 40th birthday party in May 1999. Both are good friends, although we see them much less than we would like. Jane now lives in Rugby with her husband Keith, and Pat is living in Hersham with her partner Bill.
Here is a photo Phylis Marszalek, a really lovely lady who Alan has known for very many years. She is here cutting her 80th birthday cake at a surprise party thrown in her honour by her daughter Vicky and husband Ray.
Phylis, is a keen cook and gardener and is always baking cakes for some village event or other in her home village near Peterborough. For the past year or so we have been delighted that Phylis has been able to stay with is for a week or so during the summer. Long may the tradition continue!
|During my stay in Weymouth between 1979 and 1980 I became good friends with Steve and Judith Kinnersly. There is a photograph of them here.|
