Fri 14 Sep 1945 Wyaston Bride (plus photo)
Many friends assembled at St James Church, Edlaston, which was tastefully decorated, to witness the very pretty wedding which took place on Saturday last. The bride was Miss Nancy Knaggs, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Knaggs of Wyaston, and the bridegroom was Mr Frederick James Harrison, only son of Mr and Mrs D Harrison, Council Houses, Wyaston. Both families are well known and popular in the neighbourhood.
The ceremony was conducted by the rector, the Rev. Maxwell Young, and Mrs L Hulme presided at the organ and played appropriate wedding music as the bridal party entered and left the church. Given away by her father, the bride wore a dress of white satin, with wreath and veil kindly lent by a friend, and she carried a bouquet of white carnations. Her attendant was Miss Vera Johnson, who wore a dress of blue taffeta and her bouquet was composed of cream roses. She was also accompanied by two small attendants, Jane Ridyard (cousin), and Pauline Rushton, who was dressed in pink satin and carried bouquets of sweet peas. Mr Harry Knaggs, the bride’s brother, carried out the duties of best man. As the bride left the church she was presented with two horseshoes by her cousin Rosaline Saint and Alan Edwards.
The reception was held in Edlaston School, where a large number of friends were entertained. Later the bride and bridegroom, who were the recipients of many handsome and useful presents, left for Blackpool for their honeymoon.

Sat 31 Jan 1914 AUSTRALIAN SUBMARINE AE2 ON TRIAL
Within a very short period, the second submarine which is being built by Messrs Vickers Ltd, for Australia, should be ready for joining the vessel at Portsmouth, which left Barrow last week. AE2, as the latter one is designated, is similar in every respect to AE1, and on Tuesday she returned to Ramsden Dock after completing trials in Morecambe Bay. It is stated that the vessel performed everything which was required of her, and her tests are regarded as perfectly successful. She is now at the submarine dock, where the final adjustments are being made prior to her departure. AE2 will subsequently proceed to Portsmouth, and from thence, along with the craft which preceded her last week, she will undertake the long voyage to Australia.

A newsagent in Wiltshire has been overwhelmed with support from customers after a knifepoint robbery by two balaclava clad raiders.
Chippenham shop owner Phyllis Knaggs and her 17-year-old assistant Danielle Rice have been flooded with letters and gifts from concerned residents since the terrifying attack.
Danielle was behind the counter at the Woodlands Store in Woodlands Road and Mrs Knaggs had slipped out the back for a coffee when the robbers marched in and demanded money from the till in the afternoon raid.
One of the masked attackers ordered her to empty the till and pulled out a knife, while the other stood with his hands open for her to fill with notes and £1 and £2 coins. (and so on)
