  • Description

    AN OCTOBER WEDDING IS PLANNED BY 22-YEAR OLD MR. STEPHEN POLLOCK, HEIR OF VISCOUNT HANWORTH, AND MISS ELIZABETH VAMBE, A 21-YEAR OLD RHODESIAN-BORN COLOURED STUDENT. THEIR MARRIAGE WOULD PUT MISS VAMBE IN LINE TO BECOME BRITAIN'S FIRST COLOURED AFRICAN PEERESS.

    MISS VAMBE, WHO WAS BORN IN HIGHFIELD, AN AFRICAN TOWNSHIP NEAR SALISBURY, IS THE DAUGHTER OF MR. LAWRENCE VAMBE, A FORMER EDITOR OF THE AFRICAN DAILY NEWS. SHE ACCOMPANIED HER FATHER TO LONDON NINE YEARS AGO.

    MR. POLLOCK, WHOSE FATHER, THE SECOND VISCOUNT HANWORTH IS ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF THE CONSUMER COUNCIL, HAD PLANNED TO RENOUNCE HIS TITLE. BUT HE HAS NOW DECIDED TO RETAIN IT BECAUSE HE FEELS THIS COULD BE HELPFUL TO RACIAL INTEGRATION.

    THE COUPLE ARE BOTH STUDENTS AT SUSSEX UNIVERSITY AND HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR TWO AND A HALF YEARS. MR. POLLOCK IS READING ECONOMICS AND MISS VAMBE IS CONCENTRATING ON POLITICS.

    BOTH LORD AND LADY HANWORTH HAVE GIVEN THEIR APPROVAL TO THE MARRIAGE, AS HAS MISS VAMBE'S FATHER WHO NOW WORKS FOR THE ANGLO-AMERICAN MINING CORPORATION.

    MR. POLLOCK AND MISS VAMBE WERE FILMED TODAY (SUNDAY) IN BRIGHTON WHERE THEY WERE ENJOYING A SHORT HOLIDAY.
