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.
