We had a trip out to see the Connaught Light Opera Singers who were performing at Wrest Park. Doreen happened to mention that it was her 65th Wedding Anniversary. I asked the event organiser if she could arrange a photo shoot with the singer’s and pianist and they obliged. We were fortunate to be given the front row seats. At the end of the performance they sang ‘Anniversary Walz’ to Ron and Doreen.
There was not a dry eye in the hall, it was a very emotional time for everyone present. Afterwards we all enjoyed a cup of tea and cake served by the Wrest Park staff. The next day Ron and Doreen celebrated with Taymer residents when cake and some bubbly was served. They both said it was a lovely surprise and made their day very special.
