Oh Schmunks, that's crap that you can't run but we'll love to see you on 'our' side of the fence! I suppose we could even put up with Barley for that lol
Don't worry Super Caz, there are always a few who put their names down each year but are never heard from again. They either forget or drop out and don't say. The onus is as much on them to let you know as it is for you to tend to their needs
Right, I need to hunt back to find the last list and see what's still outstanding ....
Okay Dokey .... what we still need people to bring are sharp knives for cutting up fruit & also paper plates/bowls for handing out jelly babies & oranges.
The bamboo poles are a difficult one so if your group needs poles then please supply your own.
I am on the case of the gas for the balloons at the moment.
I have contacted RW towers to ask for money or help or anything .... no reply as yet so we will remain ever hopeful

Sorry to hear that Schmumks but it will ge great to share a glass or two with you do the fun side of the fence .... and we might just let the bloke in too
Thanks SBH, I have no problem with asking for money and support from anyone
Sounds a bit more promising then reikirabbit. Hope your hobbling bits sort them out and you make it round.
Consider it done VikW Thank you.#
I have ordered a bright but slightly overcast day but bring sunglasses and wellingtons just in case.
I might be able to bring some canes. I'm a bit concerned about carrying long pointy objects on the underground, but I guess that if I am getting there early that there won't be too many eyes to take out.
I am collecting the balloons tomorrow so they are all sorted. I ahd to order them due to the lasrge quantities.
