Stolly arrived armed with fab photos, later to be joined by Adam and Laura. Out came the spirit levels and T frames ( not a new type of cocktail ) and they got gridding .

The last thing Rosie said when she left 106 on the 21st Dec was ”Dad the front garden looks great”. She’s right – it does , thanks to Richard and John’s hard work – not forgetting Paul A. who planted the seed of change by telling me how, in its former state , resembling steptoes Yard , it let the rest of the road down and we could be featured in one of those lousy neighbours docutrash- not any more !
