    Dear Dave

    Firstly may I sincerely thank you and your colleagues on making a thoroughly enjoyable weekend in Spain possible and accordingly may I also offer my gratitude for funds that were made available through Taff.

    As you are probably aware I was medically discharged from the Corps and registered blind with peripheral vision. Whilst I am reasonably mobile I miss what most regard as obvious. For example, whilst running through the quiet country lanes my concentration is on the ground tone and shadows. On one occasion I missed the obvious running straight into the rear end of a parked horse!

    Whilst I try to be independant at times its so refreshing to have people around that want to help and in doing so I'm beginning to realise it helps to alleviate stress.

    The weekend had a profound effect in that "I chilled" in the peace and tranquility that the beautiful venue presented coupled with the help and good company offered by the lads.

    Finally I would have written earlier, however I was awaiting receipt of your address which I now know was sent to me by TEXT! The obvious thing I dont do is text

    Thank you again for your kindness and I wish you all the best for the future.

    Yours Sincerely

    S**** S******
