celebrations... the happiest pictures.
THREE year-11 girls of Coundon Court School, Coventry, wanted to mark their leavers' ball with a photograph in Celebrations.
Charlotte Flowers, Faye Morby and Stacey Northall put on their best frocks for the evening which was spent with the year group they have been a part of for the past five years.
Stacey is also pictured as she and Stuart Bulsara are about to set off for the event.
JUST as the Tim Henman craze began again this year, lucky Ryan Butler won himself a signed racket and bag in the Evening Telegraph Slazenger competition.
Ryan's success couldn't have come at a better time as the 11-year-old needed a new racket.
Mum Bridget, of Farm Close, Keresley, said: "He will want to treasure the racket, so I have promised to buy him another one to play with. I guess he's had two presents in one but nothing matches the signed racket."
Ryan, who attends Holy Family School, Keresley, and is due to go to Cardinal Newman RC School in September, said: "My friends are impressed. I have shown my family and friends my prize. I think it's excellent."
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
FOUR generations of one family attended St Patrick's Church, Wood End, Coventry, on June 20, to see Amy Paige Taylor make her First Holy Communion. The group then went to the Parkstone Club to celebrate.
Amy, of Hillmorton Road, Wood End, would like to say a big thank-you for all the gifts she received and to all her friends and family who were there to support her.
DEREK SPRING marked his 65th birthday with wife Sylvia and their daughters Michelle Kinnie, Karen Watt, Angela Prinzel and their families.
Last August he celebrated his retirement with a family holiday to Spain - the party numbered 16 in total.
The family wishes Derek a restful and enjoyable retirement.
IF YOU'VE ever flown on Concorde, there's a fair chance that Brian Deakin helped make it possible. In his working life, Mr Deakin, of Kingfield Road, Foleshill, Coventry, designed parts for the aircraft.
His career also saw him working in other fields, helping to design the assembly line for making Angel Delight and designing gear boxes for racing cars.
And a job with Massey Ferguson's overseas division took him to Poland, France, South Africa, Iran and Austria.
Mr Deakin retired from his job of 17 years with GES in Coventry (part of Unipart) when he turned 65 yesterday.
He is married to Janice and they have two children and two grandchildren.
FRIENDS turned out in force for Craig Hanson's party held at Centre AT7, Coventry. The youngster, of Tom Ward Close, Ernesford Grange, celebrated turning seven and is pictured (above, right) with one of his good friends, Ryan Chatland.
