Episode955

A face from the past for Elsie Tanner...

18th February 1970: While dropping off a box of grocerys at Len Fairclough's, Elsie Tanner received the shock of her life - her old paramour Bill Gregory was back and was staying with him. The two hadn't met for eight years since Elsie discovered that he was married and his separated wife Phyllis came back to try and give their marriage another chance. Many things had happened to Bill in the interim: he had gone into partnership running a bar in the Algarve and, after another two year separation, Phyllis had died. Now Bill was keen to not waste further time and asked an incredulous Elsie to be his wife.

Mavis Wilton

Mavis wilton

Mavis Wilton in 1988

Mavis Wilton is Rita Tanner's close friend and former assistant at The Kabin and wife of the late Derek Wilton. Mavis initially joined the Kabin in 1973 after spending two years at the Mark Brittain Warehouse as a clerk. Following a temporary move with her parents to Grange-over-Sands, she was re-hired at the Kabin and balanced her work there with nursing her bed-ridden auntie Edie Platt. Mavis finally escaped her overbearing relative in 1977 when she moved into The Kabin flat, where she led a quiet life with her pet budgie Harriet. Mavis was to remain at the Kabin for over two decades, chiefly thanks to her strong friendship with the newsagent's manageress Rita Littlewood. Confident and glamorous, Rita took the shy spinster under her wing and a bond was formed. The 24 years they worked behind the counter together weren't without their lows; a born fusspot, Mavis often tested Rita's patience with her indecisiveness while Rita frequently took Mavis's loyalty for granted. Mavis longed to break out of her shell and in 1997 she retired to Cartmel to run a bed and breakfast.

Previous featured characters: Billy Walker; David Barlow; Maggie Cooke; Steph Barnes; Jackie Ingram; Phil Jennings.
