Alton Webteam: November 2015
News from Norma
In October a friend and I went to The Haymarket theatre at Basingstoke for an evening with Simon Weston, the Falklands' veteran. What an incredible man — surely his story must have inspired Bosnian, Iraqi and Afghanistan injured! He told us all that when he was wrapped in a lot of misery and pain counteracted by drinking a lot there were times when he no longer wished to live. Today he laughs and jokes when he tells this story.
One thing stood out for me — he has had 95 operations and is having no. 96 this month.
Talk on Simon, I admire you and so must many others!
Recently I had occasion to attend a cremation in Taunton. It was at 3 o'clock and was followed by tea. I decided to ask Chris & Deborah McCallum if I could stay with them for the night.
They were so kind and hospitable. I really enjoyed my stay with them both. The peace and quiet is very restorative and the garden birds make a pleasant time at breakfast.
I thoroughly recommend their home, their food and their conversation. Our loss is Somerset's gain.
