FROME CONCERT



PAULINE TAYLOR sent the following note, and photographs:

Just thought I would let you know how brilliant Helen was last night. She got a standing ovation from the audience in Frome. She was outstanding.I took some digital photo's. I am not very good at using the camera, but thought I would give it a go. I am sending Helen a photograph, fortunately I did take some good one's. Helen was interested in the camera-at first she thought it was a video recorder.

2nd FEBRUARY

WARNERS ISLE OF WIGHT (16th January)

Just a short letter to let you know that I saw Helen with Humph over the Isle of Wight on 16th Jan at the Bembridge Warners holiday hotel complex.

What a fab evening I had which I shall never forget.

I met Gay and her family all very pleased to see me, the crossing I had on the catamaran was pretty lively to say the least, as I travelled on the Friday afternoon. Helen came down via Portsmouth to Fishbourne via the car ferry-she had a good crossing.

The complex I stayed at was 5 star class as was the food and everyone so nice and friendly.

I hope you are delighted with the colour photo of me and Helen at Warners
