I meet my first husband over the phone when I worked at Telephone House and he was at RAF WYTHALL on the PBX.
My now husband I meet when I was a barmaid in The Cock at Wishaw, he offered me a lift home and, as the story went we live happy ever after.
Hi BilsatAfter my usual drink at the "Valley" pub I made my way to the Hot Dog wagon parked next to the 18 bus terminus run by a Spanish man called Tino and there I met two girls, one was called Sue and we met the next day and have met every day since! We married at Holy Cross Church where my parents married in 1968. Three children later (no grandchildren) we are still together and living in Billesley....
Unfortunately have to say that Colin passed away today. An extremely brave man who would always offer help when needed.Met my Wife at her Brothers home in Coleshill, I was working part time repairing his coaches (Colin Mann Classic Coaches) and my Wife was looking after his children whilst his Wife was in Hospital. Best result from any job I ever had.
I used to be a member of youth club, I was very fond of the snooker table, could you put the photo back if possible please.I met my husband John when I was a youth leader at Ladywood Brookfield Boys Club. A friend who was also a leader and I were taking a group of the members on an orientiering weekend so he asked John to come along as he and Doug (the other leader) had experience doing it. That was 1967 and we were married in Dec. 1968. Yes you are right it is our 40th wedding anniversary on Dec. 7. Mo
As was suggested I have added John's photo the year we got married. It is at the top of Scarfell, climbing was his passion before he met me. LOL As my brother was in the mountain rescue team we spent many happy hours on the mountains, even our honeymoon. We stayed at the Black Beck if you know that area.
