    they have similar girls on the Gold Coast at Surfers Paradise and they wear brief gold bikinis. Mum used to be an iceskater in Brighton when she left school and toured South Africa, Australia and NZ in the early 1940’s. I went there to visit in 1993.

    ‘Surfers Paradise’ and ‘gold clad bikini girls’ would certainly warm the cockles of any man’s heart… And in my archives there is a colour picture of Jan’s mother skating at Brighton, Sussex… in her professional days.
