BATCHELOR: I have been trying unsuccessfully, to contact a friend of over 50 years.

Her name is Audrey Batchelor, her last known address was 44 Green Haven Court, 84 London Road, Cowplain.

I believe she has two sons in your paper’s area. John and Graham (Graeme) Atkins. I would love to hear from either Audrey or her sons. I’d appreciate any assistance you could give me. I migrated from Cowplain in 1964.
