Does that include your good self NanaZ? Posted Image


Indeed it do - plus other VNers, cognito and otherwise!

We hope lots of people will come along at 3pm and be inspired to join up (and if there's a shilling at the bottom of your pint, you're conscripted :D)

That is indeed very moving Elmo .......sniff - can't wait for tomorrow! I've got my eye on the Royal Tunbridge Wells Royal Best Bitter which eerhmm was where I was born.

Full bodied chestnut brown classic with a wonderful aroma - sounds like the perfect match. :lol:

Might go tomorrow night if I can convince my OH. She's not a big fan of the G&G or of beer but hope to twist her arm ;).

I'll probably stroll up for the Community Choir, and be sporting a white enamel badge saying 'glaziers' to make me an easy target for abuse :D

Feel free to say 'hello'!

They have someone coming in to do it for them, outside or in the smoking area if it rains. I believe they are starting it at about 3pm and it finishes when it runs out.I hope there issome left as I won't be getting there till gone 8 too.

Won't be there until about 7 so planning to eat beforehand as if the hog roast starts at 3, I'm not sure there'll be much left by the evening.
