I'm sorry to inform you that I will have to temporarily stop taking and processing orders, as my brother is very seriously Ill, and prospects do not look good, so you will all understand at this time I must concentrate on my family, and business will have to come second.

I will let you know when I will be back in the 8mm business, when I can.

I hope you can appreciate what I am going through at this time.

Thanking you in advance,

Barry.

Thank you for all the good wishes, I'm afraid the news is not good, and it's only days ahead for my brother, but I will be BACK.

I've had a couple of calls thinking we have ceased trading all together, so if everyone can be patient, when things have come to thier natural conclusion, and a suitable period of time has elapsed I will be back.

Dear Friends,

I have some very sad personal news, my brave brother Terry lost his fight against Pancreatic Cancer this dinner time (1 p.m.), he suffered a week of pain I would not wish on anybody, but he suffered it with dignity and fight. He was admitted to a lovely caring Hospice for his last days, and they made sure his final hours were at least pain free. As you can guess I am personally bereft at this moment, but I hope to feel better in the coming days. Terry got really into my business when he was forced to take early retirement, and was interested in all aspects of it, even this last week he asked me if I had any orders to go out, I could not tell him that I had temporily had to close to look after him, he would not have liked that one bit.

I will get back into the 8mm saddle as soon as I can, but the family are now in the limbo period until the funeral, but once that comes, I'll assess my next move.

I thank you all for your patinece and understanding at this sad period in my life.

Barry.
