Andrea Witts (née Hopes) asked if we could help her trace Wendy Brewer (maiden name) for a college reunion

 “Her father was a film director/producer and they lived in a detached house in Chorleywood. I was a student teacher with her at St Mary’s College Bangor ( ‘76 – 79) and after college she worked as airline cabin crew.

2019 sees the 40th anniversary of our graduation and I am really hoping she will come to the reunion we are planning next year.”



Mary Wilde is hoping to trace the person who popped a very important postcard through the letterbox of her Berks Hill home.  Last January Mary and family went to The Galapagos islands  –    best known for their sea lions and penguin population  although they have another unique feature  –  the island of Floreana is one of the world’s most diverse, uninhabited areas and operates a stampless system of sending mail  

“We visited Post Office Bay in Floreana with my two sons Stephen and Andrew, plus Stephen’s girlfriend. The idea is that visitors post each others’ mail.  We picked up a few postcards to deliver to the UK – one was from a couple on their honeymoon who said receiving it would be the icing on the cake!  We also left a post card from each ofus in the box on the remote chance that it might find its way back to us.” 

To Mary’s delight the postcard arrived 7 months later in August,  “There were no English stamps on the cards and, as it was a Sunday, they must have been hand-delivered but we were in the garden and so unfortunately didn’t see the person. I would just love to know who brought them back!”
