So sorry to hear this Sue and Gina. Such fond memories. It was a great area to grow up in. I see some familiar names here. Hello Shirley and Theresa. I worked at Graphic Arts for Doug as a Saturday job with David Hicks. As well as cleaning up the magazine trimmings, cleaning the loos and changing the hand towels, the highlight was going out the back and burning all the unwanted fork lift palettes between the factory and corrals pond. How we didn’t take The Brow out, I will never know. RIP Doug.

So sorry yo hear of your loss Sue and Gina, so many fond memories. I lived in your house as much as mine when we were kids. Along with Teresa I remember going to the Saturday morning discos in the Capri. I remember the jokes and how he used to make himself laugh. Sue, you used to roll your eyes and I think of him when my girls do to the same to their dad’s jokes. Thinking if you both tomorrow xxx

Sorry to hear of the passing of 'Mr Price' longtime next-door neighbour - he came to Cornwall to drive me and a couple of friends home on the day of the 1966 World Cup Final - we had to divert to see the match! RIP Doug
