Oh what fun we had...


As already discussed, we had a lot of fun at Perran Sands. The staff were treated like shit, but we didn't care. Free/cheap food from the catering staff, very cheap drinks from the bar staff. No wonder management hated us. Most nights we would end up in one of the pub/clubs partying away (at least I did anyway). There are a number of pics of these occasions (1979) taken by the official photographers, of various groups of pissed staff. This one is predominantly catering staff. Back row from right to left, the chef from St. Agnes (?), Jon Smith, Denise, Mike Parker, and Yvonne. On the left hand side in the white top is Chrissie, who I really fancied, but that's a long story...Second row from right; Ron the Welsh kitchen porter alcoholic who used to play House of the Rising Sun on guitar when pissed, Jon Handley, Debbie Strutt. Mick May in the middle of the front row with the Catering Manager on his lap. I had a very brief thing with the girl front right, Liz.

Whoops! Should be more discrete, though never my strong point! Hope everything is going well, Chrissie! Ax

Sounds good! I'm fine, thank you, went to London and then Bristol, where I've been since, though my family are all still in Cornwall and I go there a lot. I have loads of photos from then. Quite a few are on the Droof Days blog, though I think there are many more. I suggest e-mailing me anthony.hewitt@blueyonder.co.uk or finding me on Facebook, and I'll ferret around my archives and see what I can find. How did you come across the Droof Days blog, that's quite impressive! A x
