Glad it was a good day, would have liked to come down, but couldn't move other commitments.

Did get to see the rugby though. Good game and even better result

I didn't realise yuo were trying to set a record for the number of people to get into a SR!

Well done to all

Thank you all. What a great day!
Fantastic! A brilliant day graced with glorious weather

Now, when's the auction?

I personally think that there is a fine line between being responsible, having common sense and having fun safely.
I'm sorry if these comments upset or ruffle a few feathers but this is the way I looked at this particular situation
