Malc and Lilian Lettin

Decided to renew the wedding vows they made 46 years ago at a service in the church of Mary Magdeline in Cudworth.The service was a Convalidation of their wedding held on 22nd September 2012.
Malc who has been diagnosed with a secondary cancer of the liver had asked Lilian to marry him again, sometime in the past. Now seemed to be an appropriate time for them.
The arrangements had to be made quickly and so a room in the place of choice, Brooklands was only a small one. So invitations had to be limited.
We were asked to meet in the secret garden at Brooklands for photographs to be taken. We then had lunch in the restaraunt.
We all enjoyed the company and the day.
I am sure Malc and Lilian will have all the best wishes from all members of the association.
