Just a month after celebrating his 66th wedding anniversary with his wife Iris, Ken Andrews was the unsuspecting recipient of a ‘This is Your Life’ surprise to mark his 90th birthday.

Ken was described by friends as ‘a people’s champion.’
Ken, who was brought up in Nuthall, said: “Nuthall will always have a special place in my heart and from living in the village from a child to a man I have many happy memories which I will always treasure.

“The ‘This is Your Life’ party took us completely by surprise and thanks to my dearest daughter, Vicky, I have been reunited with friends and colleagues who have enriched my life.”
The couple took centre stage and their achievements over a long period of time were proudly shared with their guests.
