A woman is seeking a mystery man from Ashford who she met at a Madness concert.
Teacher Kathryn Carson, 59, was chatted up by a man she knows only as Gareth when she went to the show at the 02 Arena in London on Saturday, December 22. The missing man told Kathryn that he is from Ashford and now she is trying to track him down.
Kathryn, from Canterbury, said: “I was there on my own and ending up sitting next to a group of six men. Gareth actually swapped seats with his friend so could sit next to me. He was all over me!”
Kathryn describes Gareth as quite a big build with dark straight hair and in his mid 50s. “He looked like Paddington Bear”, she explains. “At the end of the gig I had to dash to get my train. He seemed quite put out actually that I left.”
In a weird twist of fate, Madness’s latest hit, ‘Never Knew your Name’, practically descirbes the pair’s story. With lyrics such as: ‘I would have liked to have walked you home/ But you said you’d catch the bus so I ended up alone. I never knew your name nor your telephone number/Will I ever see you again? I wonder?'
She adds: “I believe he works as an engineer and has to leave quite early to get to work from Ashford train station. I thought about trying to meet him at the station but it just isn’t possible with my job.”
If you are Gareth, or know who he is, please contact the Kentish Express, 34-36 North Street, Ashford, TN24 8JR or email firstname.lastname@example.org
