Hi everyone and many thanks for the advice. Well I left the tent in the garden for 8 days (been away from home) and amazingly, not one drop of rain! Typical!!!
Anyway, have just taken it down and washed all of the curtains, the bedroom pelmet and the bags. Also found some of the original Raclet instructions in a little pocket in the bag... it doesn't say which model it is, but I'm pretty sure it's a Hilton, looking at the pictures online, although it's brown and orange - I will try to get some pics up soon.
There were a few guy lines missing, so I got some new brown paracord and guy runners and have replaced both the missing and old guys.
So now, after some TLC, I'm just putting it all away ready for our first outing, which will probably be next year now as I don't think I can convince my OH to camp at the end of October.
