We are now spending our second Christmas in Devon after having left Audlem in April 2017 after thirty happy years.
We wanted to take the opportunity to wish all of our friends and acquaintances in Audlem a very Happy Christmas.
Also, as a number of people have asked, we also wanted to let anyone who remembers our son, Chris, know where he is and what he is doing.
Some may recall that he worked serving petrol at the Woore Road garage run by Brian and Kath to save money for flying lessons.
A lot of years later after spells with the RAF and Monarch he has spent the last six years with Emirates and early this year was made Captain on the A380 (double decker).
So if any of you are using this service from Manchester or any other UK airport please listen out for him and make contact if he is on — he would love to hear from you.
