Letter: Looking for an old friend from the 60’s

The Burghwallis pub
The Burghwallis pub

F.A.O. Gillian Carr  In 1965 Gill and I met on a blind date, at that time she worked in the Co-op Emporium. The date was a foursome to the Golden Ball pub at Bramley.  At the time Gill lived with Mum, Dad and younger sister Jackie at Spring Lane Sprotbrough. I was working at ICI Fibre's on Wheatley Hall Road. Shortly after Gill left the Co-op and went to work at Owen & Owen. We went on holiday to Jersey and remained close friends until mid 1967. Eventually we broke up, mainly due to our immaturity.  I left ICI Fibre's and went to E & G Charlesworth on Bennetthorpe and by chance I met Gill who was working at the Deaf School on Leger way so we arranged to go out for a meal which was fantastic to catch up. It wasn't until 1999, I was at the Burghwallis Pub for a meal and a lady with her son attracted my attention. "Do you recognise me?" I thought it was Jackie but it turned out to be Gill. Since then I have tried numerous times to contact her, without success. I now live in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Gill you have always remained a fond memory and I would love to hear from you. Phone +64275447700 Robert Campbell Email cawdor@outlook.co.nz or crosrol@gmail.com
