    Hi Graham

    I will double check, but when we visited the site this was not mentioned - so I am hoping it won't be a problem . We are not members of the ccc (yet).

    Does this mean you can make it Graham?:Smile:

    Sorry Sharon, can't make this one - we're fully booked for the next few weekends. What it is to be popular :Rofl1:!

    We've been through Foxton Locks on a canal holiday (what else?!), a few years ago - lovely part of the world.

    Am sure you'll have a great time anyway.

    The venue sounds great Sharon.

    One of the places I've always wanted to visit on a hot Balmy Summer's day.:Rofl1:

    Can't see the RV being ready though.:Sad:

    Well there is always the same meet at the end of May Steve!!

    Anyway, 'can't see the RV being ready' - you talking about yours or ours? Just ten mins ago ours dropped the contents of the radiator onto the ground so I might be going down to Halfords to check out their tent department:Angry::Angry:
