Pavs started as a large wooden hut made by Ray Henikier, a carpenter. I used to help him take down the hut in the late Autumn and put it back up the following spring. Then Pavs was rebuilt in block work. My father used to work for him after Dad retired from his job. My son, Steve, used to work for him as he was a chef. So my family has a lot of good memories of Pavs.
