Jean and Laurie celebrated 45 years by visiting Ilkley and York for a few days

On the way to Yorkshire (in mid September 2013) we made a point of visiting Rutland - our smallest County - to have lunch at the brilliant 'Olive Branch' and pop into the tiny County town Oakham - which is a splendid place to visit. A small slide show follows:

Jean and Laurie celebrated 40 years together with family and friends.

A chance in September 2008 to celebrate Laurie & Jean's Ruby Wedding Anniversary by meeting up again with friends and family not seen for many a year could not be missed. People met, chatted and spent time catching up on what each had missed. The talking, dancing and fun lasted for 5 hours. We should do this again as soon as there's a good excuse.

Photographs below have been edited to protect some from embarrassment - probably taken by Laurie while the good ones were taken by Tom, our grandson, Cliff White, Eileen, Scott, Chez Tisdale, Roger Simmonds and Paul Kingston. Apologies to and perhaps many thanks from those that we missed.

Any photos you took we could add to those below. They would be very welcome and can then be easily shared with your relations and friends. 

By the end of the evening we had collected £926 in the 'Ice bucket' from the 110 who made it there and other donations that arrived by post. The two charities selected: Guide Dogs for the Blind and Wycombe Different Strokes are likely to be very pleased. Click here for letters of receipt.
