Double reason to celebrate at the party in Peterborough
The Peterborough Breathe Easy Group's Christmas party was a special event when two of the members celebrated their Diamond Wedding anniversary and presented a gift and a gift was presented to a bunch of flowers by the group.
The celebrating couple were Pamela and Roger Howland, who met for the first time in 1955 at the Peterborough Cycling Club Hillclimb, where Roger was a cyclist. In fact, he still holds the record for the ride from Peterborough to Leicester.
They were married on December 14, 1957 at St Barnabas Church on Taverners Road and had two children, Paul and Fiona, and four grandchildren – Joe, Stuart, Max and Georgina.
For the past nine years, Roger has been treasurer of the Peterborough Breathe Easy Group, part of the British Lung Foundation.
The Peterborough Breathe Easy Group meets every second Thursday of the month between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm at the Thomas Walker Medical Center on Princess Street.
There are guest speakers on a whole range of topics, a raffle, sometimes bingo, but always a friendly welcome and a cup of tea.
The group had a trip to the pantomime at the Key Theater during the festive season.
