"Remember that this is an open invitation and please do come and join us. If you want to know more about Carey, what he did and why this is important, please ask."
The one story that sticks in my mind about Ces is (as I mentioned in the original post) his love for Swarb. In fact, he named his dog after him.
Ces said that one morning at Cropredy, he woke up to find the dog humping his leg. He shouted "Swarb, stop shagging my leg." He then wondered what the neighbouring campers must have thought.  Grin

I can't see myself on on any of the photos (probably a good thing) but I'm sure I was there.

Thanks to all for making me feel welcome!

£350 and counting, according to Lucy, so well done all. TCT is a great cause and I'm glad we support it in this unique way.
