We arrived in Brixham in the spring of 1954, our first 'home' was a one bedroom basement 'flat' in Torquay. I found plumbing work on a block of flats at Plainmore, and became close friends with Brian and Whin Dovey from the Newton Abbott area, unfortunately we have since lost touch. Our first home in Brixham was in Langley Avenue. I worked for Palmers in Dartmouth before starting sub-contract plumbing and small building works on my own account, in and around the Torbay area. We later built a house for ourselves in Braddons Crescent and then as a member of the F M B some hundred-plus 'houses' at various locations around the area.
