In your April 22 edition, there is a tribute to the late Dor Evans, formerly of Colyton.I knew the family well for times spent on the River Thames. Two bungalows: one, Bag End, belonged to the Evans family and we had,upstream, Makeshift, both at Bourne End, Buckinghamshire.The Evans' created a swimming pool and changing room behind their bungalow. They allowed us to use it when they were not there So, our time there was a dream. One could write a book on life on the Thames.Our cruiser, Merula, was 26 feet long. We took the cruiser upstream to Henley to sleep on board. Happy dreams.Peter WebsterCornerways School Lane South Chard
