25th April1966: Jack and Annie Walker didn't get too many holidays away together and for that reason they both enjoyed a trip to Ireland they made together in the Spring of 1966 to see Harry and Concepta Hewitt. Upon their return, Annie was aghast to see what she felt was a fall in standards of hygiene and behaviour in the Rovers brought about by chirpy relief manager Brenda Riley but even more put out that Newton & Ridley asked her to stay on and teach Annie how to be friendly to customers and Brenda's methods of putting on food in the daytime. Annie dragged Jack to the brewery for an explanation and saw her worst fears confirmed when she returned and saw a billiard table set up in the public and a raucous game in progress. She made her demand of Jack: throw Brenda out or she would leave herself.
Kimberley Taylor was an employee at Bettabuy supermarket who was engaged to Curly Watts. Kimberley ended the relationship and transferred to another store when Curly pestered her to have sex before marriage. They reunited through a dating agency a year later before splitting for good when Curly blew £2,000 converting his loft into an observatory against Kimberley's wishes. Kimberley was the daughter of Randolph and Brenda Taylor. She was an only child and had a strict, sheltered upbringing as her parents were old-fashioned church-goers. Kimberley met Curly in October 1989 when he became Bettabuy supermarket's assistant manager. On Curly's first walk around the shop floor, manager Reg Holdsworth invited him to point out where Kimberley had made a mistake in her shelf-stacking technique. Curly re-arranged the display so that it would be more eye-catching to the customer, introducing himself to Kimberley as he did so.
