A holiday park which has discovered missing photographs in one of its caravans wants to reunite them with their owner.
Staff at The Causey Hill Holiday Park, in Hexham, Northumberland, discovered photos and death notices, which they believe have a West Boldon origin, in a caravan it bought in and wants to return them to their owner in time for Christmas.
Linda Grant, park manager, said she found them six weeks ago and believes they are of sentimental value.
“The park sells brand new caravans and the park owner’s buy in good quality pre-owned caravan’s from other parks around the country,” she said. “Recently we took possession of a 2006 Cosalt Capri and when preparing it for sale we found some old and some more recent photographs – many with writing on the back – along with newspaper cuttings with a memorial card and an evening wedding invitation. The names referred to are Robson and Bannister and the area is West Boldon.”
Ms Grant who co-manages the park with Graham Elphick, said she found six old photos, one with ‘Uncle Fred Robson aged 21’ written on the back, one with ‘1951 Aunt Charlotte, Linda’ on the back and a large photo with ‘Diamond Wedding 2003’ written on the back.
“I am quite sentimental about stuff like that and there was quite a lot of stuff left in the caravan,” Ms Grant said.
“These are obviously precious to someone and it would be great if we could re-unite them with the owners, especially as we’re nearing Christmas when families get together and often dig out the old photographs.”
