Widdowson, Bob Yes,where are you now. I've had no contact with the family since your Dad retired (I also worked at Rampton) and Pete sadly died. In fact the last time I saw him was at the theatre in Lincoln one night many years ago. I haven't moved far, have lived in Upton for some years. Dave Burton
