    I know Strawberry Hill Farm! I do miss the area a lot, was born in Thornley but moved South when I married my hubby about 16 years ago.

    Wouldn't believe how many Geordies I bump into here, we get everywhere! lol

    My husband is from Sunderland. I know it well. SAFC is my team and Fluff is my nickname, hence safcfluff. Sounds crazy, an apt description though.

    My Daughter plays football for Willington Ladies under 16 although they train and play in Durham. The older team plays and trains in Willington and we had our christmas party at the clubhouse in Willington.

    We've just been on a spring trip to 'Down at the Farm' near Houghton le Spring, it was brilliant! I'm about 20 miles from Durham.
