Nicola and Trevor Oakes, Ruthwell

From 30th of June to 2nd of July I was privileged to be hosted by Nicola and Trevor Oakes and their wonderful family in Ruthwell in the Dumfries and Galloway region. They live in a lovely old and characterful farmhouse together with their two gorgeous children, Elliot, 8, and Emily, 11, the dog and the cat.  Nicola works as a registered childminder while Trevor is a nurse at the Carlisle Hospital’s cardiology ward.

Nicola and Trevor were my first Scottish family.  They found out about Elizabeth’s story on Facebook and, despite having very busy personal arrangements at that particular time, they kindly offered their help and provided me with overnight accommodation for three nights and made sure I was comfortable, had plenty of food and a place to rest!
My huge thanks to you Nicola, Trevor, Emily and Elliot for the warm welcome into your house and to Scotland itself.  I will never forget your kindness, generosity and your genuine support. xx
