    Dear Richard,
    Thank you so very much for organising the Rowland Family Tree gathering – it was wonderful to meet everyone. (The children had a great time too in their own dining area!)
    What a fantastic thing you have done for us all – well done for all your hard work.A big thank you from us.
    Best wishes to you all who were able to make the meal (and to those who were not able to make it!)
    Rachel, Simon, Luke and Alexander Curtis (Adcock)

    Hi Rachel

    It’s Vanessa Goldie-Scot here, from Australia. I moved to Sydney from Scotland 12 years ago and have never had a moment’s regret. I hope you and your family love it here as much as we do!
    I still enjoy researching my family roots and when I do go back to the UK that is what I do. Haven’t Richard and co. done a great job!
    All the best
