It’s taken over 30 years for love to bloom for Rick Price and Jane Osborne (nee Wilkinson) but it finally has. Rick & Jane were just 15 when they met in 1981 at Court Fields school but are now firmly back together. In fact they’re engaged, and their wedding will be in January 2014.
“Our English teacher’s idea was that I should sit next to an example of good behaviour, but our close proximity had a rather different and much longer lasting effect” Rick confessed!
“I wasn’t allowed a boyfriend as a teenager but we’d made a significant connection with each other, something neither of us forgot,” said Jane, who now runs The Old Sale Rooms in Mantle Street.
She went on to say that “Our paths crossed a couple of times over the next 30 years, but it wasn’t until April this year when publicising the charity auction at the Old Sale Rooms for SURE (Beacon Centre, Musgrove Hospital) that Rick contacted me and we started seeing each other again.
“By the end of mid-summer he had proposed, of course I immediately said yes.”
