That's me, Mark Rolfe, Lee Cast, and Tyrone all booked at Glasshoughton too.

I've just got to hope they remember to reserve me a downstairs room, as Karen will be still recovering from the Histerectomy op, so stairs are definetly OUT this year Laughing

Can't wait cheers

Last year was a great event, and I was witness to the problems that Steve and co voiced on the forum after it took place, so I am surprised another is going ahead this year. Still, great news!

I felt guilty for not getting more involved last year after the tremendous difficulties that the crew faced in getting the event organised and running, so I'll be sure to buy a few strips of raffle tickets and whatever else.

I'm not booking!














My sister in law only lives 5 minutes away so we'll stay there. Though I may be coming by myself as Adele says she's not bothered. If you see her on Facebook, try to talk her around!!
