Have your say

Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with.

DENTON: I am searching for my two cousins, Carol and Shirley Denton.

They were born in Rugby and moved to Hayling Island to stay with my mother in the late 1960s. They then moved to Waterlooville with their parents about 10 years later.

As far as I know they still live there.

If anyone knows of them or their whereabouts would they get in touch with me please.

WATKINS: Can somebody help me find my dear friends?

All I know is their daughter lives in Ryde on the Isle of Wight. The daughter’s name was Debra Watkins (she may be married now) who was born in December, 1963.

Her parents were in France last time I heard from them.

JANET: Janet was the adopted child of Len and Hilda Short, and once lived in Farlington.

I last saw her maybe 30 years ago in the Baffins Pond area and so would be in her 60s. At that time she was married and had children. I would love to make contact and say hello.
