Morning all,

Any updates on Gordon’s health?.

Such a lovely man-really hope he’s doing okay.

Cheers,

John

Was only thinking the same myself the other day, John. Last I heard he hadn't been well, and was recuperating in a care setting. Haven't heard anything since then, but I know he uses the internet to communicate a lot, so am more than a little concerned we haven't heard anything for a while.

I do hope Gordon is ok. It is worrying that no one seems to have heard from him.

I got an update this morning from a friend in Somerset.

He asked about Gordon with several local antique dealers and a couple have confirmed that he is still quite ill and in a care home setting.

I am sure I speak for all forum members in wishing GB the very best and pray for a recovery in his health.

That's sad news - let's hope that he's in the right setting to be helped.

Main priority, of course, is that Gordon makes a full recovery.

Will miss the South-West fairs he organises so we’ll this year, though.

I've met Gordon many times and he really is a lovely man.
Sad to hear he is poorly.

Hope he recovers fully soon

Is there any chance we could get the address of the care home? I'll be happy to buy a get well soon card and address it from everyone who wants their names appended to it?

I would be up for that John....

If we drop in enough we might get him some better wine than he usually raffles Smile

I had heard he was ill, and sad to know about his current predicament.

He did a great job organising fairs in the West Country.

I trust he makes a full recovery.
