In an email dated 9 June 2004, Alan Sawkins (grandson) said:

Our parents sometimes took a holiday and Roger and I were looked after by Grandma and Grandpa Sawkins who at that time lived next door to Uncle Charles and Auntie Maggie in Reynards Lane/Close, Welwyn.  Uncle Charles had a number of chickens, goats, and other birds and animals.  Consequently, because of this and the fact that Auntie Maggie liked us more than Grandma we spent a lot of time at their bungalow rather than Grandma and Grandpa's.
