    Just a quick message to all those that attended the above this year.

    Thank you for coming,
    Thank you for being far more respectful this year and making it more of a pleasure to marshal than a nightmare as per last year.
    I promised you weather and boy did we get it

    There's always one or two at a rally that forget things like arrivals times and saying thank you but the majority of people this year were a pleasure to meet greet and cook for.

    A massive thanks to all that helped, planned and unplanned,
    Thanks to those that made music for the masses last night, off their own backs and without any prompting,
    thats what it's about.


    So who knows maybe next year might be the last ever bring and buy like this year's.

    I'm happy to report we raised will over £350 pounds for two great causes,
    Child line and the dogs trust.

    had to bail this PM as work came calling.

    Cheers

    paul and nikki

    Next year's goody bags will contain watches....

    We had a magic time at the bring and buy - Jeff came away with a Hymer electric step to replace our designer bent one ( the fence post won that argument) and Skye sez "Thank you for all the treats, fusses and belly rubs"

    Paul can I say a big thank you from us and granddaughter Sophie. It was our first bring & buy meet and we have had a fantastic time, the only down side to it is we are going home with more than we came with.:(
    Thanks to the band and Simon for the entertainment last night and a big thank you to the bacon butty brigade this morning.(y)
    Just to let you know the sun is shining here now.:)

    We had a brilliant time too, thanks to you, Nikki and George, Graham and Jean, Pat and Trish, all the bacon butty crew, the Band, and most of all to all our mates, old and new that made it a weekend to remember. The first Funster Hen Night - didn't we set that bar high girls?!!! A brilliant night, Saw some waiters bums, (one we would rather have not seen, Ken, @canopus) ;) Drank loads of fizz, and cocktails, sang and danced, and the light show to finish was amazing if a tad wet! We found that you could fit at least 30 girls into Jim and Sian's van and still have room for a dance, that marshmallows injected with jam are to die for, and that we could organise an amazing 'Do' like that with the hen being completely unaware of anything going on!

    Here's to the next, very last ever bring and buy!!! (y)

    Now safely home in Sunny South Wales, thanks Paul for organizing the meet and to all the funsters for the entertainment, we have had a great weekend, and combined with Malvern last weekend, the body will be needing a considerable time to recover. (should be ok in time for Pembrey)
    Cheers and thanks again :)

    Home safe and sound, we too had a really great weekend. I'm feeling much better and whilst not back to normal I'm getting there.
    Now to the thanks....the list is long my friends....

    Paul nicki and the gang thank you very much for a lovely bring and buy, as always we really enjoy your meets. (y)

    Cliff and Ger our Funsters Besties (how would we cope without you two?):love:

    Tootles, Colin, Terry, Ron, Cliff and any other Radom male funsters for getting under our van and mending our grey waste pipe and valve after we ran over a caravan jockey wheel on the M5. You all seem to love getting your hands dirty.;)

    Graham and Jane(?!) our rally neighbours and newbies, who looked out their window to find us almost under their awning. :eek:

    Sandra and the girls for letting me take part in the secret hen do. (I echo all of Ger's thoughts above on that!). Not sure I'm ready for the photos!:ROFLMAO:

    All the talented musicians for the music and entertainment. :cool:

    Jim for the laughs and running the best motorhome club in the world. :D

    Sian for the fizz. :whistle:

    All our Funster friends old and newly made for the lovely chats and laughter. :)

    And finally thanks to the landlord of the cotton arms for the beer.:sick:

    Oh and for awning straps....they worked a treat. :rolleyes:

    Just wanted to thank all those who bought my bits from David (DavidG58). £52 will be going to Ashgate Hospice, who were so supportive during Stephen's last few months. And, of course, many, many thanks to David for being such a help to me.
    That's what Fun is all about

    Now recovering from yet another fabulous weekend. Livers now hanging on washing line drying out!!! The Dusty Miller is our new favourite pub!! Why wouldn't it be when last night we had a free bottle of Prosecco to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary . Seriously though - they were so fabulous all weekend with their fab food and impeccable service! Great meet and a huge thankyou to Paul et al for their hard work in getting it together yet again. Looking forward to next year .
