Looking to the future


Today we have been on a mini-adventure. It was very exciting. We went here to have a look around for Dan as she has chosen it as one of her options on her university application form.

The times for visiting were 10am - 2pm, and as her Dad was flying home from overseas and his flight wasn't landing until after 9am, and Hartpury college is about a 2 hour drive away, we went by a faster method of transport than the car. And what's more nobody was airsick. We had a very dishy pilot called "Captain Will" - but try as I might I couldn't get his phone number!!! I must just add a huge "Thank you" to the wonderful Jo (she knows who she is) who absolutely went above and beyond the call of duty to organise and arrange this trip for us...It was really fantastic!!!

  3. I know - it sounds really flash and awful - but it was actually quite cool. We don't normally behave like that - honestly...we're a normal family!!!

  5. G-NWAR, an Agusta A109s (Grand), powered by 2x P&W 207C powerplants. That's a nice ride. Probably the second best rotary ride around. Good choice!
