Going a bit off topic, but yes, I've been down in Fareham for over 20 years now. I'm not local to the area, but I sound like it these days!

Mr.Grimshaw unsuccessfully tried to teach me woodwork in the 2nd form, he failed due to my complete lack of any talent.

His other talent I remember was as a football ref.
