Featured Memory: Horden 1930s

I was born in 1928 at 20, Cotsford Crescent, the third son of a miner William Holmes. All his brothers were miners and myself and my brothers worked underground.

Re: order conf. refs. 299980 & 300163. these relate to 2 calendars you prepared for me containing pictures of old slapton, dartmouth & beesands in south devon which i sent to two friends who live in dartmouth. this is just to relay their great admiration and appreciation for their gifts. they were overwhelmed to see pictures of their childhood village, slapton and to have a different one every month next year will bring back many happy memories. so, you see, not every email you get on this screen is a complaint. well done and thank you for offering this item. i got a calendar for my parents last year with old pictures of stanwell, middlesex, where they were both born and they, too, were really happy and still haven't thrown it away. they just moved it to another place in the kitchen to make way for this year's 'ordinary' calendar. they are 84 and 85 years old.

Many thanks for making five people (including me!) very happy.

I must say thank you for excellent service from your company. the jigsaw i ordered last friday was delivered on monday in time for my father-in-law's birthday today. he is delighted with it. really exceptional service! kind regards april startup (from hong kong)
