    Great time at Chester Festival

    Many thanks to Jim, Sian and all the other funsters for a great weekend at the Chester Food festival.( It brought back happy memories for me of playing hockey on the Roodee when I went to school there many aeons agos.):Doh:
    The show was great with lot of lovely stuff to eat and drink. The staff were friendly and there was lots of room for us:Smile:

    The Network rail sandblasting show at 2.15 am did not keep us away from the Tai Chi class this morning but I did think the aliens had landed.:winky:
    Hope you all sleep well tonight.
    Van away in storage and back having cuppa in front of the fire.
    Best wishes
    Lucille

    Still here on a soggy racecourse only a few left, thanks to Jim and Sian and all the other helpers... Great meet as usual with fun meets, enjoyed so much of it but disappointed by the train workers..... Great to meet so many new people as well as old ones :winky:

    We had a great weekend thanks to Jim and Sian and everyone else who helped out. The weather was a lot better than originally forecast although Thursday evening was freezing. We left this morning due to the rain but it wasn't torrential just persistent. We saw some interesting wildlife as well: Blackcaps, Jenny Wren, moorhens, Herons, Cormorants, a buzzard or two and even a couple of what we believe were Hen Harriers. Gaz43 and myself walked the walls yesterday and took a few snaps, I may post a few later if they're any good. Time for a beer or three now though:RollEyes:

    Another great meet - thank you Jim & Sian!

    We even managed to rock the 'entertainment' tent for an hour on Friday night.

    Home safely despite the Shrewsbury ring-road looking like it was Bank Holiday Monday ::bigsmile:

    We had a great time at Chester, so much to see and do, where did the time go? This was our first rally with the funsters and certainly not our last. Thanks Sain and Jim for making us feel welcome. Hopefully have a chance next time to meet some funsters. Found it hard to drag ourselves away from all the nice food and BEER.

    And Chester was fantastic, what a beautiful city.
    Mike and Nic:Smile:


    Can you put us down for next year:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Got back home about 3:15, surprisingly not raining all the way.

    Many thanks to Jim & Sian for all the organisation, pity the weather didn't behave.

    Many thanks also to the Funsters we managed to talk to who made it a great weekend.

    We did our best to keep the Druid quiet on the [STRIKE]periphery[/STRIKE] end of the first line of vans and apologise for the few occasions when he escaped without his lead on :ROFLMAO:

    Home in a proper time to make up for Thursday! Thanks everso Jim and Sian for all your organising. The bacon rolls yesterday rivalled anything the Show had to offer. Looking forward to Peterborough.
