    It’s a little bit removed from the Thames, actually, but we can still sit in the sun. BD and I will, however, be meeting at an earlier waterside (W’spoons) location.

      Thanks John – I’ve corrected it now.

    Slightly questionable pub choices, but I shall definitely look in, as it’s a few hundred yards from home :-)

        i.e. “Gambler sozzled with ale”.

        I had the Bricklayers down as my pub of last year – have things changed, Nik?

    I hope everyone has a great time. Apologies for not being able to attend (I know I owe BD a couple of pints for past indiscretions – and by now I need to pay for a round for all the bloggers!). Best wishes to all,

    Sorry I can’t come, I’m working – but I hope everybody has a great time!

    Would love to come and meet people, but have a wedding at home 2 weeks later, and will be gardening frantically. Does this happen every year ?

      If it goes well I hope to make it every three months – the last Saturday of Jan, Apr, Jul and Oct.

    Eeek! – a compact and bijou mini crisisette means that I may not be able to get up there today or else might only get in late. Damn and Blast.

    I had hoped to go too, but it wasn’t to be.

    My comments on the very nice afternoon are on yesterday’s H&T page. I am currently sorting out the photos.
