Good idea Shaz - camp your RIB

Anyway back to the topic in question - looks like May Bank Holiday weekend might be a good starter for 10

So that would be evening of the 30th April - 3rd May

Yes - hello - no offence intended !

I would say something about serving with cream but trying to avoid the bilges for a couple of days.
