New Name, Same Content

As William Shakespeare once wrote “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” So the first thing I want to tell you is that while the name has changed from That Dapper Chap to Eldred Grove, I will continue to offer the same insights, share details of great products and experiences, and discuss topics of interest. The name is the only things which has changed. Now to tell you why!

The smartly dressed, handsome young man above is my Maternal Grandfather. He was a bit of a cheeky chap and always ready with a joke. He was a hard worker and my inspiration. His name was Eldred and he committed suicide when I was nine years old. I’ve thought about him every day since and still miss him.

If I can ask you one thing it’s to read on. This is a very difficult subject and one that affects a huge proportion of our communities. It may even be affecting you right now.

When I was nine years old my Grandfather decided he had had enough of life and ended his own with a fist full of sleeping tablets. A few years later by best friend tied a rope to a rafter in his attic, put the other end around his neck and jumped out of the loft hatch.

Both of these deaths devastated people and both could have been prevented.

My Grand Father Peter who I miss to this day.
