Happy Times

I am Ian Robinson and I worked at Land and Sea and then the Tarantella in 1965 with a guy called Rob Smedley the Tarantella was managed by a Mrs Olwyn Robinson and I think the owner was called Preston though I am not too sure of that. Does anyone know what happened to Rob Smedley I would very much like to know.
