Unfortunately I haven't much to add other than what is written here and featured in the linked articles.

Good luck with the film!

Hi Manda,
I can remember (believe it or not ) when I was little sitting in the old flat (above the knitting shop) with your Mom when uncle Dave had gone away to play football before you were born, I think I was a favourite with your Mom and Dad and I used to stop in the flat when uncle Dave went away to play soccer, I had this bear suit ! Anyway the reason for this is when I was going to school at St Peters I used to walk a mile + from Ombersley Road back for lunch etc. I had this bubble gum card which I was really proud of of uncle your Dad (Villa Kit) and to my disgust have lost it, Have gone to various places but to no avail - please get in touch - love Chris xxx
