OMG what a beauty - that red CX with black leather and red piping! Mmmm

Changing the subject a tad, how does \'one\' arrange to have \'ones\' redundant spares set up as a \'stall\' for sale?

Not 100% sure I\'ll be there but worth an enquiry

Almost organised to go - we will hopefully be arriving on the Friday evening, so give us a shout if any help is needed setting anything up.

Choice of a few tents, so that's organised, cash and carry card in wallet, so eggs are organised (a new cash and carry has oppened along the road, must check out their pickled eggs), only thing left to do is MOT the vehicle of choice.....

The only area of hard standing that I can think of is the pub carpark, pictured here.

A new cash and carry too - even better! I hope that the eggs will be of satisfactory quality... :wink:

I think you miss the point with pickled eggs, the worse the quality the better they are....

Do you think 1 jar is enough?

In fact, the whole pickled egg reference has prompted me to dig out the home made 2 month matured jar. Much to the delight of the crisp eaters of our house who have recently been reminiscing about the days when crisps packets contained more edible produce than air.

There seems to be a bit of parking at the front of the venue building, not sure how you get into it or if we can park on it but I dont see why not.


Im all set to go, hotel booked, ill be arriving mid morning Saturday and staying till Sunday evening. Looks like me and my dad will be there in the XM, possibly the C15 too but certainly the XM.
