Friends Reunited

Something unbelieveably heart-warming and touching happened this month at Winton House.  

Two best friends who have not seen each other for several years have finally been reunited, and the moment they saw each other again was truly special.  

Audrey Young, 93, and Fred Gumn, 96, lived next door to each other in the Hampshire village of Over Wallop near Stockbridge before Audrey moved into Winton House in 2020.  

Ill health and the Covid pandemic meant the two friends had not seen each other for several years until Fred himself moved into Winton this month.  

Our MD Naomi Cornelius-Reid said: ‘The moment they saw each other again was so unbelievably heart-warming. 

“We managed to capture it on film and if ever the phrase a picture speaks a thousand words were true, it is now.  

“The moment they first set eyes on each other after so long was disbelief and pure joy. It was just completely beautiful.”
