Life­long friends

Let's Talk - - POST BAG -

In a re­cent is­sue there was a letter about the 70-year friend­ship be­tween two lo­cal women.

That prompted some re­sponse, in­clud­ing a letter from Daphne Ni­cholls (nee Hub­bard).

Daphne and Eileen Guymer (nee Jarvis) were both born in Novem­ber 1934 in Taver­ham in Nor­folk and were pushed out in their prams to­gether.

They started Costessey School in 1939 at the out­break of the Sec­ond World War.

They en­joyed sev­eral hol­i­days to­gether with their chil­dren in the 1960s and ‘70s.

Eileen now lives in Reep­ham and Daphne lives in Blofield Heath. They keep in con­tact ev­ery week via email or tele­phone and also meet up oc­ca­sion­ally.

Daphne is pic­tured on the right, with Eileen, happy with their won­der­ful friend­ship of more than 80 years.

Edi­tor’s note: Do you have a friend­ship that has lasted a life­time? We would love to hear from you - and if you have a photo of your­self and your long-stand­ing friend we would be de­lighted to share it with our read­ers. Send it to let­stalk@
