A LAZY summer afternoon led to a surprise for a Morpeth family when they found themselves the stars of our Images of Yesteryear feature.

Earlier this month, we published a photograph from August 1987 highlighting The Sun Inn’s triumph in the Northumbria In Bloom awards that year.

And making the most of the garden at the back of the picture were the Forster family.

Carol Forster was stunned to see the photograph as she looked through the Morpeth Herald.

She said: “We are just shown sitting in The Sun Inn garden. It was a surprise to see the picture, I couldn’t believe it when I spotted us. I can’t even remember the photograph being taken.

“I’ve had to keep a copy of the paper to show the rest of the family.”

Mrs Forster is pictured with her children Kelly and Claire, her mother Alma Houghton and her sister and brother-in-law Sandra and Martin Ellis.

Mrs Houghton and Mr Ellis have since passed away.
