Irene Bell-Hancock:

Aurelia, it was lovely to make contact with you. Tony was a super guy and Gina was an amazing woman to me - an innocent 23 year old from New Zealand. My partner Keith Packham was from Hastings and that is how he knew Tony and Gina. Keith died in 1988, but I am so glad to hear that Gina is still with us and probably just as amazing in Spain if not more so! I have a wonderful photo of you all on the lawn out the back of the old cottage in Sedlescombe. I will try to copy and paste to you. My actual email address is: goannagraphics@hotmail.com

I have only visited England once since the swinging sixties - in 1997 when on honeymoon with my now husband Richard Hancock. We only got as far as London then as we were on route to Africa. Give my love to Gina. She may remember Irene and Keith Packham. We thought the world of her and appreciated the generosity of both her and your dad. Love, Irene (aged 70 from Wellington, New Zealand).

Aurelia (Willie). I cannot help in the search for your friend, but I stayed with your parents Tony and Gina back in the late 60s when you were just a little girl. Remember your big brother Louis and blond sister, name I cannot bring to mind. Think of your family often and hope you three children are happy and well. Loved my time in Sedlescombe.

Irene Bell-Hancock.

Tithe Barn Tearooms

29th July 2014

Geraldine Thorne:

Does anyone remember the Tithe Barn Tearoom in the village in the 1960's. I stayed there as a child with my godfather David Prosser and his family. There was also a blacksmith in the village. I am hoping to visit Sedlescombe in September whilst on holiday in the area and would love to have some information particularly about what happened to the tearooms as I can't find any mention of them online anymore. Many thanks.
