Parliament visit marks 40 years of marriage

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Retired Sheffield school teachers Bob and Sue Driskell met their local MP, Meg Munn, for tea on the terrace following a tour of the Houses of Parliament recently. The parliamentary visit was one of forty memorable things the couple want to do to celebrate their 40-years of marriage. 


Meg was happy to take them for a cup of tea as a thank you for their many years teaching in Sheffield schools. The Driskells will celebrate their ruby wedding in August and still have more special things to do, including visiting their son who lives in Malaysia and going to the Olympic Games. The couple are also fans of Shakespeare and plan to visit the Globe Theatre to see the Taming of the Shrew.


The former Headteacher of Sir Harold Jackson primary school, Bob Driskell, said:


“Of all the things we’ve done up to now, which includes a visit to Beijing and Hong Kong, and seeing the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, the visit to the Palace of Westminster, seeing Prime Minister’s Questions and then the thrill of being invited by Meg Munn to have tea on the House of Commons Terrace, was one of the most memorable.”


Meg Munn said:


“I was delighted to have tea with the Driskells and to be part of their anniversary celebrations. It was only during our conversation that it emerged the tour was one of forty things that Bob and Sue planned to do to celebrate 40 years of marriage this year! They met at Bluestone School in my constituency and have taught hundreds of pupils in different schools over the years.”
