John (Shakey) Lake has at last popped the question and, surprisingly enough, Joan said “Yes”! They are to be married at the Lensbury Club, Teddington, on Friday 22nd July 2011, in the company of their families and a few close friends.
Elsewhere, Penguin Masters swimmer Ruth had a 30th birthday to remember when boyfriend David proposed and she accepted. Wedding date is still to be decided, but probably May next year.
Congratulations to both couples.
