On the back of Memory Lane Games very first appearance in the press, we got to thinking about the last time any of our recent celebrities had appeared in the press. For Founder, Caroline Howes, the last time she appeared in the newspaper was in 2006, when her first business venture won an award for Innovation in e-Business.
On searching through the family photo albums, we discovered Caroline is not alone in featuring in the paper. In 1952 grandfather John Alexander had a great moment of sporting glory featured in the paper. An avid golfer, John’s victory in the West Calder Golf Championship was recorded and he can be seen here collecting his trophy.
However it appears grandmother Asta Alexander claims the top spot of ‘Who Was Most Recently in the Press’. A musician at heart, Asta’s creativity spills over into art and creative writing, with one of her poems being published only a few months ago in the local Birdston Care Home ‘Day Care’ Bulletin.
Moment’s of glory seem to be a key feature for people appearing in the paper – from the victorious football team line up to the local school showing off their new arrivals. Do you remember the last time you appeared in the newspaper? We would encourage you to share your memories with us in the comments section below!
