Back To The Mid 1970s - a Memory of Woodleigh.

1974-1975 I was a French assistant at Westlands School, Plainmoor in Torquay. I would often rent a cottage located in Woodleigh Road in Gara Bridge. This cottage belonged then to Mrs Wadstein who had a charming son named Charles.
This family was extremely friendly and generous to me and I had a wonderful time at their place. I remember that a weekend cost 5 pounds!
After living in Paris for 12 years and in Munich for 18 years, I am back in my home country the West of France, in a lovely town called Angoulême* famous for its Comic Strips Festival taking place each year in January.

If anyone could give me news about the Wadstein family, I would be very pleased.

Best regards from a friend of Britain

* Isabelle of Angoulême was married to John Lackland and became queen of England.
