Posted:Right enough is enough. We want visitors!!

We want you here, on the 24th, for a picnic, spin and chatter. And if you can stay for long enough, fire too.
And you can shush if your going to fal, because I may just throw bricks at you. Hastings is a much better place to be wink

Londoniums, Southhampty, West Sussex and Brighton types are all in travelling distance so don't moan about the cost. I don't care :P
Trains arses on sundays? Drive. No car? Sellotape wings to your arms and fly and/or attach a frisky seagull to your skateboard via string.

I'm rather miffed that I missed everything important and interesting at Clapham. So I am making a vague attempt at making things important and interesting here. If I get five people to come from afar(ish) I shall make a cake. A green one.

Right enough persuading. Along with the details.
I want to see you, yes you at Alexandra Park at 2.30pm on Sunday the 24th of July. There we will spin, eat, possibly drink a few beers, winge that we need the toilet alot and be happy people smile When the time comes we shall rearrange our wordly possesions into our carrying things and transport them on a short walk to the beach. Where we will spin fire and be even more happy and smiley.

Sounds like a deal? I think so.
PMs more than welcome asking questions on directions and the meaning of life ect. Hope to see more than just us lot there, if not I shall cry frown

Posted:Basically, we're going to keep pestering until you come.

If you want ducks, bring your own. I wandered off to look at some the other day and discovered they were seagulls. SEAGULLS MAKE BAD DUCKS.

Posted:aimee not everything revolves around you :P

we're all free from the end of this month til reading (other than aimee who is a waffacake) so if skully, strugz and 'the soton massive' fancy coming down, pick a weekend, let us know and we will find you campsites etc! (would offer places to stay but i live far far out of town in the sticks)

in the meantime, hastings is a nice alternative to falmouth for the kids that cant get there for the same reasons we cant (time off work, money, tents etc)
