Tales from the Trevor Arms part four ........... an apology to Lynda

Now I began going in the Trevor sometime around 1976 and have fond memories of Stan, Mona and their daughter Christine who did the business behind the bar.

The Trevor, circa 1975
What I didn’t know at the time was that the trio had originally been a quartet and along with Christine there was Lynda who was the other daughter of Stan and Mona.

And that has now been rectified by Lynda’s husband, Bill,  who left this comment on the last Trevor blog story.

“If you're updating the book with details of the Trevor makeover, you might also want to amend the section about Stan, Mona and their daughter Christine to read 'Stan, Mona and their daughters Christine and Lynda.' 

Lynda is my wife, by the way, and she also used to work behind the bar, mostly in the Vault in her teens and up to when we married in 1975. 

Pete Topping can confirm. Also, you might want to mention that Lynda was born upstairs at the Trevor at 'last orders' one night in October 1955."

All of which I will indeed add to the section on the pub when we update the entry.*

And that just leaves me to thank Bill and offer my apologies to Lynda.
