When Moreen Cunliffe booked a garden tour with cream teas for 42 people I thought it was the usual
horticultural event and I gave them the full treatment, complete with botanical names in Latin. These gardening groups usually consist of ladies of a certain age and tonight I was a little surprised to see quite a few children and even a babe in arms. There were also quite a few glazed faces and not one of those awkward questions trying to trip me up. It was only after they had had their cream teas that I found out that they were in fact a group of family and friends celebrating Moreen’s 40th wedding anniversary. In fact it was a joint celebration between Moreen and her twin sister Eileen, who had got married on the same day. And Eileen’s husband Nick was also a twin. This picture shows the two sets of twins, together with their grandsons, Charlie and Harry, also twins.
