Baby arrivals

It is with great pride and excitement that the news of the birth of Jamie Leo in Barcelona on August 8th to Jenny and Joe is announced. This makes Phil and myself first time grandparents. The joys of internet communication through Skype have enabled us to see Jamie sleeping peacefully and I have photos of him a few hours old to proudly display.

Baby congratulations also to Lizzie and Charlie, whose parents  John and Maggie Cragg (now, old-hand grandparents) live in Shupps Lane, who recently had their second child, a son, Thomas.
