Many thanks to Mike Machin for converting these videos to D.V.D format and particularly to Jan for working so hard to up-load them. We believe the original footage is from around 1983.
P.S. I was saddened to read, on the Forum, of the recent passing of Peter Day(a classmate at Leigh Beck). I was looking forward to telling him of his dad 'Rolly' featuring in these clips.

We're struggling to find a video from a news piece with Peter Day regarding the floods. It was the 45th? anniversary and he was talking about his aunt who`d died but saved her 13 cats.
