smile on sunny evenings/days, Roath Park (Rec. or flower garden) you may well find a NOn spinning... it might also not be a NOn, or even a HoP person at all, but if you see someone there spinning, you may as well say hello...

Posted:'tis sounding like the 16th for Cardiff then biggrin but i have no ideas for location other than coopers field or around that area. some of us played with fire in that bit of park behind city hall once... that worked... or there's the bit in front of the museum also...

Aberavon sounds like it could be fun, make sure there's another one before the end of the summer!

Posted:Sagetree I have a pair of these heads but no chain for them. You are welcome to use them if you can find some chains and handles for them. If I make it over at the weekend I'll bring them with me. They have only been burned a few times. I bought Cathedrals soon after I got them, so they just got relegated to the bottom of the toy bag. They may as well get used by someone rather than sitting around waiting for the moths to eat them.
