Back to Skating and our Gerry ….

As you know, Gerry said he used to speed skate for Aldwych.  Here he is in 1950 in action.  Very recognisable and still has a head of hair today!

This is a photo of his wife, Doreen, at Richmond Ice Rink.  She was a very good ice dancer

Thanks to everyone who sent  me birthday wishes yesterday.  I  had a pretty good day all in all.  It could have been a lot worse!

With the government announcement last night about some sports being able to be played from this week as long as social distancing is adhered to, there is definitely a much larger light at the end of the tunnel!


Keep strong all of you. Keep handwashing and don’t forget to phone a friend!
