Being a Bank holiday weekend, Chloe, Karl on the three little ones came down to spend the weekend with us. Fred, the oldest, had a very special treat by being taken to Lord’s on a Saturday which as I explained to him was probably one of the best days cricket cricket he will see in his life. My dear nephew, Tom Grand, made the trip all the way down from Aberdovey in North Wales to be with us -it was great to see him.. Sadly, the family left shortly after breakfast on Sunday so I saw very little of them but what I did made me very proud. They are all coming on so well. Fred starts his new school, St. Dunstan’s,. in September, and little Lara her school career at the same time, at Rosemead Primary School, where the boys have both been.. She is terribly keen and had made a wonderful diary of her recent summer holiday ,so I’m sure she will do very well at school. I was also extremely impressed with Seb’s beautifully written and illustrated daily diary which all pupils actually schooled are encouraged to keep during the holidays..

Over the three days the usual gang turned up including Dr. James Snowdon Barnett, Paul Newman and Roger Goldwin-who was stars when it came to taking me to the disabled loo – M.C.Patel; Anthony Bains-Walker and his mate ‘Col. Bill.’ and, on the lawn, Bob and Geoff. Lederman, as always, generously feeding and watering all and sundry.

A delightful incident occurred on Saturday.  Bob Lederman’s niece (Ann) was proposed to by Major Ceri John of the Royal Logistical Corps, in the Coronation Garden, opposite the Warner Stand whilst they were sitting on the memorial bench of Annie’s father (Gerald)..,,lots of tears and excitement, together with plenty of pink champagne made the day memorable.

p.s She accepted !!!!!

I spent the time from arriving at Gate 6, to the time I left, in my own wheelchair. Apart from the fact I think I would find it too far to walk on my frame, this gave us access to the wheelchair enclosure at the front of the Warner stand which was a prime position. If nothing else then my disability may be popular for this reason only with the boys who have been looking forward four years to the time when one of us would end up in a wheelchair and get this privileged treatment!
