Irene Barnes threw a party on 26th August 1970 which her friend, Bet Lynch, together with Lucille Hewitt and Sandra Butler attended while her lorry driver husband was away in Glasgow. When Bet and Lucille were disappointed with the men at the party, Irene brought over as dancing partners for them Harry and Colin, who she'd found boozing by themselves in the kitchen. It was at that party that Sandra met Frank Bradley, who she went off with the next day, leaving Weatherfield.
