Claire messaged us ages ago as she prepared to surprise her mum by gathering family, friends and neighbours. We left Swindon at four and arrived in time for the big event. No sooner than Sue walked in, she spotted a table filled with colleagues waiting to celebrate with the recently retired legend. As she settled for the third picture she saw us on the other table.

Big hugs and lots of “Oh, my”. Pity the picture quality isn’t up to much.

After a delicious ‘eat-all-you-can-eat’ supper the staff came over to sing Happy Birthday and hand over some roaring cakes.

Much later the stragglers all had a turn with ‘the’ hat and Bear ended up with a necklace on his head.

A final ‘sensible’ pose with her new necklace from a friend before I asked for the classic Sue impression of the old-timers of Corrie............Time to wend our way back to Swindon.......A really good evening.
