A COUPLE who met and married in Lowestoft are hoping to regain touch with a few of their old friends.

Bob Tripp and his wife Christine have been enjoying the beautiful scenery and warm weather of New Zealand for the past six years, and now the former Lowestoftians would like the opportunity to say hello to some of their old school friends and colleagues.

Bob was born in Lowestoft and attended Pakefield Primary and Alderman Woodrow, before undertaking an apprenticeship as a panel beater at The Coachworks.

It was around this time that he met Christine Mutton, and the two would marry at Camps Heath Church in 1971.

“We moved around a bit after that to Beccles, Clowne in Derbyshire and a few years in Ireland, before moving here six years ago,” said Bob.

They currently live in Waiuku, which is roughly 40 kilometres south of Auckland, on the west side of New Zealand.

The grandparents, both 58, have a son Leon, who lives in Scotland, and a daughter Liisa who lives in Derbyshire.

“We'd like to say hello to all who remember us,” said Bob.
