Dean Revell, now living in Texas, e mailed me some of his memories -
" Remembering waiting for parents on visiting day - wondering why they could not get here sooner - lunch at the Talbot Hotel in Cleobury (when we were there in April the brewery owners could not get a landlord to re open)"
(Ed's note - It reopened 14th April under new management - click link to their website if you are visiting)
The Talbot Hotel is a traditional 16th century black and white coaching inn, and has been recently refurbished throughout.
" - or special occasions The Feathers in Ludlow (still going strong, had lunch there)."
Set in a magnificent timber-framed building in picturesque Ludlow, The Feathers Hotel is 300 metres from Ludlow Castle.
"Sports day - seems every one got a certificate, even for 6th place. Playing rugby - Tanky Thorne screaming "he can not go anywhere with out his legs" when tackling around the neck and missing !!
Slasher Jack was the water walker, checking the pipe that supplied water to Birmingham."
