Lower Hyde Farm Memories - a Memory of Shanklin.

I remember Lower Hyde Farm holidays with great affection. Went approx five times in the 60S and always had a great time. Evening entertainment was in 'the club' where host Bob would expertly guide you through the evenings. A feature was the Russian Ballet where you kissed your partner at the end of the dance - a very daring thing for a 16 year old. Wonderful memories of a bygone age.

I remember Bob, Bob Miller I think. He played the accordion with a pianist and drummer. Incredibly energetic and enthusiastic man.

I had many lovely holidays there with my parents in the 60s. Very much changed now, I gather.
