Please help me find my long lost neighbours
ECHO readers are being asked to help trace two long lost friends.
The appeal comes from Patricia Spinks from Orpington, Kent, and the old friends are Ron and Joan Cooper who were her neighbours there.
The Cooper's moved away but kept in touch with Christmas cards – but did not add a home address. Mrs Spinks said: "We didn't know what part of they country they had gone to. For a number of years we have received cards from them but have not been able to reciprocate.
"Sadly my husband passed away this year and last week I again received a card from them and this time it was franked from Exeter. This at least gave me a clue.
"I checked to see if I could track them and found there are 27 R or Ronald Coopers in Devon 12 of them with a BT number.
"I have rung and checked if they are the Ron and Joan Cooper I knew, but no luck. But all the people I did contact were lovely – and they all wanted to help me.
"One lady rang me back this morning giving me more numbers to try.
"If anyone can help I would be most grateful."
