David's Four Years with 'Changing Faces'
This feature comes right out of the
blue. David Bird phoned me last week to ask if we would like a photo of the winning
bowls block in the Annual Torrey Cup Competition, as he knew we were unable
to cover the event as we were at the Hunstanton Tennis Tournament as
Barry & I had been asked to run a website for them. After saying
'Yes Please' to the photo, he mentioned his involvement with
'Changing Faces' and asked if we could do a feature to help.
