This is right old trip down memory lane isn't it.
Yes the guy on the left was a Rev flier. I think he had bought a speed series at the time and was finding it a bit of a handful. Very friendly guy, spent many an hour chatting while the wind refused to blow.
The Scruffs duo were Ian and Irene. They also ran the Margam Park kite festival which despite being very low key and never having any wind was a really nice event.
To be honest I think they are missed here, maybe it is no coincidence that as soon as Scruffs closed down flying on the Common disappeared.
Perhaps I'll get up there soon and try to recreate old times.
Yes agreed the guy far left was great , I think he used to go up on the common so often as he as I have now a lot of spare time on their hands . Ian and Irene yes thats the ones , always remember them coming up in the Scruffs van and flying kites that not manu of us could afford , sort of showing off lol lol .
I can remember the garden place down west wales , cant remember what its called .... like a HUGE domed greenhouse had a small festival there organised by Ian and Irene , was a good crowd , but no wind !!
I will pop up the common next week as long as its dry .
