South Shields Matrimonial College

Reading Mike Allan's post #28 in the 'If I had my time again' thread set me to wondering.............................

Over the years how many on this site met their partner and married as a result of sitting for tickets or attending nautical courses at the South Shields Marine & Technical College?

I'll be the first to put me hand up

Regards

Roger

Yup, me too. Met her at the "Yellow Welly" in Westoe. "Yellow Welly" transcribes to "The Golden Slipper", later to become "The Hedworth"
30 something years ago

Not me. But how many of you who did fall for the fatal charms also ended up living up there, not too far from her Mam?

No. But my wife was the VHF voice at the coastguard down at G Yarmouth at one time.

Not quite but my electronics ticket at Saudi Shields and getting home each weekend made sure the Memsahib's claws got a good grip.
We got married in 1975 a year after I finished at Martec.
Still going strong.

Don't suppose it counts, lived 10 minute walk from the Marine & Tech, took my tickets there and married a good Geordie lass. Difference is I then moved 'darn sarf' to live. Back to front !
