Cheers on the road
We keep saying it, but we’re constantly amazed by the fun you folks get from this magazine – for instance, packing a copy in your wheelie case to be photographed in points at home and away.
John Byrne from Jarrow, South Tyneside, took his Cheers all the way to Cape Town, South Africa, with him. The proof was sent by his daughter Rachael. The shoreline, blue sea and Table Mountain sure look inviting.
Paul Robinson and Margaret Harrison have recently been staying with her daughter Tamatha and husband Les – originally from Newbiggin-by-the-Sea in Northumberland (plus grandbairns Luke and Sarah) in Mandurah, near Perth in Western Australia. Paul took a 12-month supply of Cheers along to leave at White Lakes Brewery in Baldivis to show the large British ex-pat community what’s been happening back in this neck of the woods.
“Keeping chilled here in the heat,” writes Paul. “We’ve been tripping around breweries and wineries, sampling a vast array of beers, local wines – Semillion Sauvignon Blanc – and fab seafood. Oddly, we’ve spotted no Fosters amber nectar anywhere. As one native said, ‘We don’t sell that muck here, it’s purely for export to you Poms’.”
Thank you folks, keep the ball rolling.
