  3. Yes i have heard it was a bit fiesty , We were in Tavira in October and the day before we arrived it absolutly wacked it down but we had 4 nice days and enjoyed it very much , it was the first time i had been over that way usually we are in the Lagos area .
  4. Ah Rutland very nice part of the country , good to hear that your family are doing well , i married a girl from Stannington (2nd wife) and we lived up there for a short time on Oldfield rd her Mum still lives over there but we prefer this end of town . My brother is also over here ( Roy ) don't know if you remember him but he married (2nd) Ruth the daughter of the vicar at the Vestry i think it may have been after Father Bryan , I am going to tell him about this site , he will love it .
