Posted:As some of you know, us manc spinners have been talking about shell island since play has been canceled.

This is an open option for anyone who wants to join us!

The plan thus far is we will have a convoy on the thursday from chester train station (for those in the general north area) where lift share is available.

Anyone else who wants to join please do! it wont be a massive do, but it will be a fun size with lots of giggles biggrin

 Written by :=Flashpoint=




Anyone else fancy coming up North Wales way? One of the alternatives actually happening is that a few of us Manc types are going to Shell Island in North Wales - at 7 per night it doesn't break the bank, we're going on the Thursday and coming back on the Sunday, it's a nice place, 300 acres of camping, and open fires (and I also assume firespinning) allowed on the beach/dunes. Everyone is more than welcome, the official website is here
http://www.shellisland.co.uk/
which is a bit rubbish
and the unofficial website, with photos, testimonies and all the other stuff, including facilities is here
http://www.shellislandcampers.co.uk/

It will be a nice relax and chill. Just what we all need to get over our collective anguish!

Pete

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to bail as I both have a gig on Thursday and Friday and well as seeing a friend up north before she leaves the country so go on ahead without me!



Have a lovely time everyone!

Posted:i can get the time off work BUT

hmmm look at that rain : /

at this rate i wont be going : ( as my lift with robyn is uncertain : (

trains take 5 hours. on national express i can get a return for 31 with my railcard. id be leaving warr at 11.31 to crew, to shrewsbury to llanbedr then bus i guess to shell island at 4pm on thurs. hmmmm :/

as i wanna be back in warrington / widnes for friday night, i'd have to be leaving shell island at either 2.38 or 4.28 to get back.

coaches im having no luck with on national express

Posted:Pete, I'm coming from Warrington. Was looking at the train due to the space in the cars issues. The campsite is max of 3k (2miles) from the train station, dunno if there's a bus or not, but it should be walkable (this may be inaccurate once kit is considered - may be easier if someone can pick up from station.

Bugger as that train journey is, it is actually quite tempting. Should be nice scenery and can get me there earlier than alternatives meaning I can put my tent up in the light. I hate choices.
