Love and Marriage - Part 1 - Mike and Rachel’s Wedding [06-06-2008]

6th June 2008 saw the wedding of Michael Claydon to Rachel Hill. The ceremony took place in the beautiful Norman church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Rock, Worcestershire. Following that there was a spectacular reception at The Collier’s Arms. The superb meal was created by the Collier’s own chefs. After this everyone danced into the night to the swinging sounds of Jamie Knight.

There are some pictures of the Wedding and Reception on our Galleries page.

Love and Marriage - Part 2 - Anniversaries [06-2008]

It has been a busy week at for the Claydon family when it comes to celebrating Marriage. As well as Mike and Rachel’s wedding mentioned above, Thursday 5th June was Andrea and Jon’s First Wedding Anniversary. It certainly doesn’t seem like a whole year of married life has passed. On the other hand the memories of that beautiful day in Antigua do seem a way off now.

Finally, Sunday 8th June was Malcolm and Jenny’s Ruby Wedding Anniversary. That’s 40 whole years, for those keeping score! On Saturday, to celebrate the occasion the family, most of whom had been staying locally after the big wedding the day before, gathered at Malcolm and Jenny’s home in Worcester for lunch and Pimms. The sun shone on the family as they passed the time together in the garden before heading off.

Malcolm and Jenny had celebrated their 40th Anniversary a little early with an Easter Cruise on the Queen Mary II, sailing from New York to Panama and then on round the Caribbean. We met up with some great people , enjoyed time on a beautiful ship and felt we had truly celebrated a very special anniversary.

Go to our Galleries page to see some pictures from the cruise and of the spectacular Queen Mary II.

Kiu and Newki [02-02-2008]

The Claydon family grew by two when Kiu and Newki moved in with Jo on 2nd February 2008.
Jo first met Kiu (dark and brooding) and twin brother Newki (blonde and foppish), 9 year old Poodle-Whippet Crossbreeds (so we’re told), on 27th January at the Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre in Kenilworth and only took seconds to know that they would be going home together later in the week. 

Kiu and Newki (adopted names Kiu Marvin Claydon and Newki Edward Claydon) have settled in very well in their new home in Northampton and have got Jo well trained in her duties. They love going for long walks, rawhide chews and Schmackos. Kiu, the noisy one, is actually more shy and reserved and loves cuddles whereas Newki is outgoing and loves to play, chase him and steal his chews and you’ve got a friend for life.
