It's that time of year again folks. Most of you know the drill by now, but for our newer members, here's the details. For those of you arriving on the 4th, Maz has kindly offered to bring his gas BBQ to cook on and has some burgers, sausages left over from his open day, but feel free to bring some food to top it up as breakfast on Sat and Sun will be needed as well. The Hog Roast will arrive approx. 4.30 pm on the 5th and Mrs Adam will provide the usual side dishes, however we ran out last year so please feel free to bring any side dishes you feel appropriate (along with your favourite tipple
) If any one is arriving by bike and can't carry the quantity of booze they'll need, let me know in advance and I can get some for you locally (there is an offie in the village). There's plenty of room for camping and I've been chopping down trees for the bonfire, some extra bogs will be provided to ease the queues in the morning.
In addition to our usual gathering around Yoffi's Memorial tree to remember absent friends, this year we'll be scattering the ashes of friend Andy Summerscales, so he'll always be with us
This year, there may well be traffic diversions around the village, If you experience this, tell the people on the A483 that you need to access TREGARTHEN LANE in PANT and they'll escort you through. For those of you who've not been before, follow the A483 from Oswestry (signed to Welshpool) for 5 miles approx. until you reach the village of Pant. After the 30mph sign, you'll see a McColls shop on your right and 100yds further, on the right, you'll see Tregarthen Lane. Turn right here and follow the signs. The last 1/2 mile is on a dirt track, so don't be put off
One thing I'd like to ask is if people could try and keep the garden and paddock gates closed, as this area is fairly dog proof. My dog Dylan has developed a bit of wonderlust, he doesn't go far, but he tends to go and visit his doggie mates on other premises
No doubt he'll get out at some stage, but if we could try and keep him in it saves a bit of worry
I've probably forgotten to add loads of stuff, but if you need to know anything ask on here or if you get lost phone me on 01691 831238
Looking forward to seeing you all again
