Dads last!

Well, good news received this week, dads memorial bench is finally in situ in Porthcawl. If anyone is in the area of Trecco Bay Holiday Park, it is located on Newton Sea front, which was one of his favourite spots. Dad's name is Ivor. The only thing is, knowing dads' sense of humour, I can't promise any of you that you won't get splinters hee hee!

Hope you are all keeping as well as can be, I think of you often xxx

Lovely news Tanya and great to see you back. I had an uncle called Ivor and my father was Glyndwr and I would have been called Lynne whether I was a boy or a girl. I think you can tell where I am from :)

Hello Lynne, hope you are keeping well. Good strong names aren't they? Must say though, I do prefer Lynne for a female lol! Come on the welsh x
