logged on to the Newbiggin website on this rainy afternoon
in Christchurch N.Z. and thought that perhaps I may have
little anecdotes from an autobiography which may be of
some interest. I was born in Melrose Terrace in 1921,
and until the age of 7,when our family moved to Ashington,
spent many happy hours roaming the then golden sands.
I must say that it was a thrill to view your website.
