Don't you mean "CWM"???

Nowhere near Treorchy - grim sort of place - actually brought up all over the world - spent most of my childhood in the Red Sea(literally)!!!

Did go through a seriously tough patch in 1992ish because I was too proud to go bankrupt but fought way out of it at last - NEVER want to go there again!!!
