Hi Everyone

A forum for new members to introduce themselves to the rabble already onboard. Not compulsory!
Tell us a little about yourself, lie if you have to but keep it to just an introduction, not a car discussion.

Hi Everyone

Postby pauldarbyshire » Sat Aug 02, 2014 9:21 pm

Hi all my name is Paul and I'm new to this forum. I drive a 2003 Citroen Xsara Picasso Exclusive, I like talking to people and hopefully make new and great friends. I enjoy getting my hands dirty when it comes to car repairs but I do ask for help and advice before I try to do any repairs. I live in Somerset and am a Manchester United supporter, I have a good sense of humour and do enjoy a good laugh.

That's local enough for me Paul :-D It's a bit like me. I've been up here for the past 39 years and I'm nearly regarded as a local now :lol:

I know Bridgewater extremely well. We used to shop there when I was a kid and passed through many times on the way to Blue Anchor near Minehead where we had a caravan by the seaside. Happy days 8-)

Latterly my mum was in a nursing home in Bridgewater...

Used to visit Burnham On Sea a lot when I was younger loved playing in the sand dunes. My mum used to work at Bridgewater Hospital and my dad was stationed at Bridgewater Police Station. Used to live on Bristol Road and every year watched the carnival outside The Cross Rifles pub. :)

Yes, provided you also move out of Manchester. There are (apparently) only 3 known Man U supporters living within the M60.
