Email from Dave :-
Yesterday, July 15th, Liz and I visited Tony and Ethel in their lovely home near Huddersfield. We had a short time with them and then went with them to café near Holmfirth. It was good to see that they are doing so well in their new home and that they are getting the help they need. They are both content but miss the club and all their friends at Monte Mar.
Tony is doing some bowling and was due to play in a competition this weekend. Ethel is playing less but does play occasionally. I gave them the medals they won last season but which they were unable to collect at the presentation event. They send all their best to the club and hope to be able to see us during the winter months if they can arrange a visit.
