Hello everyone, firstly I would like to thank everyone who has sent me cards and messages of goodwill and sympathy on the loss of my brother Terry to Pancreatic Cancer, it has helped immensley.

I have decided to re-open from Friday (21st October), so if there is anything you wish to buy from the current list then please contact me in the usual ways from that date.

It has taken me a while to sort out my film shed, when we got the news of Terry's condition, everything was just dumped in there to give more room for his needs, but slowly I am getting it to a state where I can at least get to the films and send out orders, that is why I am not opening any sooner, as I have only now got up the energy to tackle it, as the last 6-7 weeks has been extremely hard and taxing on myself and my family, but Terry would not want me to mourn too long, as he was really interested and supportive of my 8mm activities, so it's "Back in the Saddle" from Friday.

I would also like to thank many collectors who phoned up trying to place orders when Terry was very sick, there understanding of my situation was brilliant, when told that the business was closed temporarily and why, were to a man totaly understanding.

My sister (42) is going thru breast cancer at the moment, so understand how it feels when a family member is suffering, it affects us all. Cancer is a bloody awful disease.

All the very best to you Barry, kind regards, Mark
