|So quietly had the arrangements been made that only a few relatives and intimate friends were aware of the wedding which took place yesterday morning at the Independent Wesleyan Church, High-street, of Councillor James Roe, of “The Mount,” Victoria-road, and Miss Elsie Brawn, of Victoria-road. The ceremony was performed by the Rev C J Keeler. Mr and Mrs Roe left after the ceremony for a short honeymoon.
Besides being a well-known partner of the firm of Messrs Roe Bros., High-street, Mr Roe is president of the Rushden Chamber of Trade, and is a keen tennis player. Mr Roe was elected a Councillor in the Conservative interests at the last election.
Mrs Roe is also a well-known Rushden sportswoman, being an enthusiastic tennis and golf player. Mr and Mrs Roe have been active helpers in many local tennis tournaments arranged for charity.
