'round the world trip for Goddards

Mark and Pat Goddard, along with Rose and George, enjoyed a long discussed visit to New Zealand and Australia, also including Singapore and Hong Kong. The family were away for 4 weeks in all, M&P celebrating joint 50th birthdays this year. Tess decided to stay at home (despite much fruitless persuasion) and she enjoyed the house to herself, looking after the dogs, cats, lizard etc., well supported by her two close neighbours: Ian ("IT") Stevenson in the Flat and Annette ("Fuller") Reavley in the Cottage.

The trip inspired a 100 page illustrated diary, which is available to borrow if you fancy a read - please contact Mark at Spartan.
