Hi folks,

Hope everyone has had a fab Christmas and is looking forward to the new year!

If you are struggling for things to do once the festive season is over, you could always pop down to The Harbour Club, Portscatho on Tuesday, 15th January at 8pm.  Geoff and I will take you on a little journey around Great Britain, share some of our experiences, stunning scenery, incredible wildlife and some of the inspirational people we met along the way.

We have some photos, some videos and plenty of tall stories to tell (getting taller as the weeks go by!)

Entrance is free, but we’d welcome donations to charity.

Hope to see you there!

Geoff and Andy

A little video to say thank you to all those special people who made our little trip possible, who wished us well, who inspired us along the way and of course, who made such generous donations to our charities.

There are so many people to thank and sorry if we have missed anyone!

The fabulous total raised now stands at £11,800 (including Gift Aid this should climb to over £14,000).

Cheers

Andy and Geoff

Of course I was interested, after all, how hard can it be?

D-Day!

It is D-Day!  The first day of a year-long sabbatical for Tanya (my wife) and me.  A chance to do all of the things some of the things we have always wanted to do (and some of the things we probably haven’t even thought of yet).  One of those things is to blog.  So welcome to my first post on my first blog!  In this and subsequent posts I hope to be able to bring you news of all the things we get up to on our year off.
