...and the much anticipated pictures of the town, taken with my new and fabulous camera will follow at some point but, in the mean time, here's a close up shot of a vintage Brooks saddle which is part of my restoration "project" of a 1970s Holdsworth Les West with Reynolds 531 steel frame (for all you cycling fans out there Les West was a top British cyclist in the 1960s, 1970s and early 80s.) There you go, I knew you'd be interested! Anyway that's how I've been filling what little spare time I get. How about you??..
Here she is, after 17 years service to the town, the community and the school as Head Teacher at Slade Primary School, Vivienne, yes I can finally feel comfortable calling her that instead of Mrs. Resch, was working hard at the recent Slade summer fete, held on their magnificent fields at the back of the school. Of course the sad thing was that this was her very last fete in charge. No news yet on her replacement but she is a hard act to follow that's for sure. I for one will miss her and wish her a very long and adventurous retirement. Although I must say she does seem awfully young to be retiring. Only in her early 40s at most surely?!
