In the run up to the final of our Best Friend of the Year competition, we’ve been following the stories of each of our pairs of winners. Today we find out more about Louise and Becky from Swindon, and why they were selected to join our finalists.
Louise and Becky have been friends for almost 15 years. They met through their husbands, who both work at Bathwick Tyres in Swindon, Wiltshire. The four of them arranged a night out at a local Swindon nightclub when Louise came bounding over, her top slipped down to reveal a little more than she had initially planned! Laughter ensued, and ever since, the pair have done almost everything together. They were even pregnant at the same time, with their children born just a few weeks apart. They are ‘Aunties’ to one another’s children and, despite the fact that they don’t see each other every day, they are always each other’s “rock,” able to talk about anything.
Louise was stunned after being chosen: “When I found out that we’d made the final, I was in absolute shock! I’ve never won anything like this. I hadn’t initially told Becky I’d entered because I didn’t want to get her hopes up, so she was even more surprised than I was!”
