Hello All -

A really great pic - it looks as if the weather was spot on, just as it was when Barrie and I visited a few weeks back!

I recognised Garrie and Susan and, of course, the Herts representative on the far right but any chance of names to faces for the others, please?

Regards, Ann1e

Hi Anne

The weather was great, which was a very pleasant change for up here lol was pretty windy, but the sun stayed our all day.

From my memory (apologies if i get names confussed!, sorry), from left to right there's:-
yellowgixer's wife and son (sorry didn't catch your wife's name), Chris (? i think), Jane, Neil, Garrie and I at the back, Ken, Andy (yellowgixer?) & his daughter, Stuart, Gregg, Paul and Ian.

Again I apologise if I've got anyones names wrong, and can't remember all the usernames, sorry.

Had a super day, really enjoyed it.

I think this train stops more often. And I have to change at Wolverhampton. This journey is 6 hours plus from Glasgow, the incoming was four and a half. But no delays - it's just the schedule.

Virgin Trains noticed my Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/dpnowdotcom) and sent congrats :D

Still on the train here - half an hour and I change at Watford Junction for my local service.

Weekends on Virgin 1st class can be very close to standard class prices. And I get free wifi and refreshments. :)

I balanced the extra with a rather rough hotel in Glasgow - but it was cheap!

Aye - things have been tough since the papers all went tabloid, you couldn't beat a good broadsheet on a cold night.

Sounds like you all had fun. Getting the thread back to pictures ....

I do like the one of the "abseiling" technician

Nice composition and colour of an unusual subject

Abseiling is the wrong term, isn't it...:rolleyes:

That was a middle frame in a burst of five - and C-AF did me proud, tou can read the logo on his jacket in all five frames. And he wasn't hanging around!

Here's a selection of mine. It was a great day and we had beautiful weather, really good to meet the folk and put faces to names.
