A spot of bother

In the early 1980s Geoff received a postcard of Tunbridge Wells from a friend.dear-geoff_1 The message on the reverse of the card read:

Dear Geoff,

Just had a weekend with my friends in Hartfield. Had coffee here Sat morning, 74p for two! As you have not phoned I hope it means that all is well with you. Have had a spot of bother with car and flat is freezing so have not been in touch. On Friday we were told the office would close end of August – well at least they have decided on a date. If you have no other plans, perhaps you’d like to spend your Birthday weekend at Sidcup. Let’s hope it will have warmed up. Please let us know when you can.

Love S.
