Greetings from afar

MiscellaneousHi, I've just got a letter from a long lost member - Chandler (nee Helen) writes from Lismore and says hi, how's it going. Her car made it but needs serious rest and recuperation. Chanlder is enjoying the new doctor immensely and is very glad they have stuck to the old format rather than americanising it. She is only in Lismore for a couple more weeks before moving on, she's chasing the sun but is finding it difficult to catch. Surfers is her next stop and is hoping to find someone tall, blond and handsome. End message.
