    Seen at most rallies and meets over the last two years but Stratford was JJ's last UK rally as he is retiring (sort of) to Portugal. I for one will miss seeing the "stealth van" which was normally first on and last off the rally field with a photo or two to prove it:Smile: JJ, Whilst you will still maintain your cyber presence on the forums and chat room, and while many of us will pop in and see you in Portugal; rallys won't be quite the same without you. You will be sorely missed on the rally field by me and I'm sure many others.

    Best wishes for the trip back down to Portugal and this new chapter in your life:thumb:

    Hi JJ,

    Sad to hear you wont be with us in person anymore, take plenty of Fray Bentos pies with you and im sure any funsters coming your way will bring you more supplies.

    Good luck in whatever you plan to do maybe see you sometime xx

    Sheila & Mick :Sad:

    This is sad news indeed. I can't believe we won't hear that hearty laugh and those great jokes. Well if JJ won't come to us we'll have to go to JJ's:Rofl1:
    What 's the postage on Fray bentos?
    Seriously, have a wonderful new life in Portugal

    I can't get over the unprecedented opportune-ness of my asking for balloon animal-making lessons, my luck just doesn't normally work that way. I think it's quite sad - just met him and now he's going, and, well, sniff, in fact!

    JJ we have met you only a few times and they have all been great, as Jim said rallys will not the same without you. Enjoy your retirement in Portugal.

    Didn't realise it was your last rally! Even more sorry we left before you had surfaced yesterday now :( It's all been said, the rallies won't be quite the same without you (and they'll be quieter of course!).

    Have a fabulous time in Portugal, we may see you there some time x

    All the very best JJ, only met you at Peterborough but you most certainly kept us all laughing and long may you continue to do so in Portugal. One day on our travels we may get to visit you.

    Best Wishes

    That should lower the average age at a funster meet.
