Does anyone know if Brookside / Alan Butler are still in business, in Spain? I sent in an order a couple of days ago but have had no response.

Yes he is Ralph. I was in contact with him a couple of days ago although I do find him a little slow in responding.

Yes, he moved to Spain several years ago and is now happily living in the town of Coín in Málaga.
