LETTER OF THE DAY: Housing - more needs to be done

Have your say

Lois Growse and Ben Knibbs have been friends since they were toddlers and had a great time celebrating their 18th birthdays together.

The Mary Rose School pupils had a big joint party at Cosham Community Centre at the weekend.

About 140 guests helped Lois and Ben celebrate and the well-wishers included one of their nursery teachers.

The friends had a lovely evening, says Lois’s mum Angie.

Lois’s cake was decorated with Peter Pan characters to signify author J M Barrie’s connection with Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Lois was treated as a baby.
