The couple who've played a part in the momentous occasions of so many Islanders over their 40 yrs in business as Charles Alexander Jewellers, shared music & memories with Beth and Christy on 23rd November, as Charles and Susan Jane Alexander look ahead to the final weeks of their family firm.In early October news of their retirement was received with a heavy heart by many – although the subsequent closing down sale attracted hundreds of people who queued the length of Strand Street for their chance to grab a bargain from the shop with the reputation of being one of the premier jewellers in the Isle of Man.They talked about working in gem mines in South Africa, being caught up in revolutions in Egypt and shared stories of their involvement in some truly momentous couples' engagements (including one involving a dolphin!).
