valray 029

A pair of bell ringers from our village church, Holy Trinity, Hoghton, were married in splendour on Saturday afternoon. Bell ringers from all over the county came and celebrated. The bells were ringing from about 13.00 until the service began at 14.00. After the service, there was further prolonged ringing. Viv and Ray, the happy couple, had previously pleasantly surprised everyone when they declared their intention of marriage, and the service was enjoyed by all. Viv, from Abbey Village was dressed in a silky looking white knee length frock and Ray in his customary suit and tie. Ray, previously named Raymond Clayton, is the son of the late George, an old Mayor of Riley Green. Raymond who has spent all of his life in Riley Green, will move to Abbey Village.
