  • My Little Girl.

    Hello Everyone, I was asked by someone on SELOC to post my news here, to aid fund raising for the Queens Medical Centre (Nottingham) Paediatric Child Care Unit (QMC PCCU).  On 25th August we (my wife Helen, youngest daughter Amy (6) and I) visited Amy’s godmother and partner for a little boat trip on their canal cruiser and evening BBQ.
