Gerry Payne

Here’s some footage of Grandpa Gerry using his video camera. It’s lovely to hear his sense of humour as he teases Brian…

Brian Blackburn, early 1999, filmed by Gerry Payne who lived next door to Brian and Veronica for many years….

Mike Payne is filming. Gerry talks about Brian with his wife Paddy chipping in…

Grandpa Gerry films Anthony, Alex, Mike Blackburn and his daughter Hannah…

In 1999 (20 years ago) Grandpa Gerry made this kennel out of cardboard for Wallace. He has such creativity and sense of fun. (50 seconds)…

Louise sits Wallace on her lap in Grandma Paddy’s garden when they lived in Worsley. I laughed out loud at Grandpa Gerry’s humour. (1 minute)…

Here is a short (28 seconds) video of Uncle Bert (one of Grandpa Gerry’s brothers) with Louise, videoed by Grandpa…

Toby (aged 2) and I went to Camelot theme park near Preston with Grandma Paddy and Grandpa Gerry while Catherine was away at a seminar. In this short, 2-minute video, you’ll see Toby on the tame Dragon roller coaster, and the log flume where we all get soaking wet!…

This next 3-minute video was taken the day after Grandpa’s 70th birthday. You’ll hear Toby, aged 5, say, “Grandpa, you were 69 the day before yesterday.” Felix was 2 at the time and asks his Mum if he can go home. There’s a great shot of Alex at the end…

At the age of 2-3 Alex kisses everyone at bedtime and Grandpa pretends not to like it. (3 minutes)…
