    Hi George, Looking through the SN & J I recognised your surname. Sad to read about the death of your Step- Mother. I lost my Mother last year and know how it hurts. I seem to remember that you played the Cello and hope that, like me, you find comfort in the music. It is a long time since we played in the second row together on the windswept common. I hope the years have been kind to you. My heartfelt sympathy is with you Stephen Hoskin

    Thank you Steve, I very much appreciate your message. I remember being in the second row with you for the newly-founded Minchinhampton Club. It certainly has grown! Although I live in the USA, I still wear the new Minch Shirt for the Six Nations. Best wishes, George
