Ex-students return to old college hall.

WOLVERHAMPTON couple Bill and Margaret Bills, are among the first buyers at Chelsea Square in Cheltenham.

The apartment complex is being built by T.H. Kingerlee & Sons on the site of the former St Mary's Hall Teacher Training College where the couple met at a student dance 40 years ago.

Margaret, then a student at St Mary's, asked Bill, a student at nearby St Paul's college, for a dance which would lead to a romance that has lasted 40 years.

Their curiosity was aroused, when they read of plans to convert the dilapidated old college buildings into apartments.

They wanted a Cheltenham town centre pied-a-terre as holiday getaway and for access to shops and theatres on foot.

Shaftesbury Hall, the first phase of the development, is being converted into 31 luxury two and three bedroomed apartments at prices from pounds 72,000.

Selling agents are FPD Savills on 01242 526159.
