hi all

OK i have tracked Popei down - I hope he doesn't mind me posting this - i will also post this as a new thread so people know - that very sadly & unfortunately for us Popei has been forced to retire due to his health. something which is of great difficulty for him as I'm sure all will understand given his life long love of the longbow & all the work he has dedicated to it.
So I would suggest no longer trying to ask him to make you a new bow as he unable to do that work any more & I get the sense he just wants some peace now to get on.
Thanks for all your great artistry & peerless work Popei & all the best S
many thanks GMW
