Just a wonder, I've been the border watchman for SWAG for a long time now, just wondering how many other Cheltonians there are on RMweb?

I'm a little too north to be a Cheltonian but if it were to be called the (South) Midlands Area Group or Three Counties Area Group then I'd be happy to join. ;)

May I just say, Dear Heart, that your efforts are much appreciated in terms of keeping Swagonia secure from the attempts by others to infiltrate and purchase too many of our discount pasties.

 

We on the Swanonian Central Committee for Public Safety understand that yours is a lonely vigil, but one that must necessarily remain so, as the Watch on our Borders must be unceasing and vigilant.

 

We herewith officially recognise your brave endeavours with the special award, in the Captain's Christmas Honours List, of a Special Badge of Merit for your dedication to our cause, which you can trade at any reputable curry house for two portions of vindaloo or similar.

A noble calling, no doubt.

 

You are most welcome to spell the esteemed Dagworth on the afternoon and night watches, or at the very least keep our vigilant sentry supplied with curries.

I did go to Cheltenham, for a dare.

I've also had a close encounter with Tewkesbury.

I had digs and later a flat in Cheltenham in the early to mid 60s whilst working at Stoke Orchard near Bishops Cleeve. Relocated to Clevedon in1968 and still in the same house all these years later!

I know I'm not a Cheltonian, but living reasonably close can I join the party?

I once nearly got a mortgage from the C&G, but went elsewhere in the end. Does that count?

Phil, do please be careful and don't blow your cover, you don't want a couple of heavies from the Midlands Area Group Secret Police to come knocking, do you?
