Last call for lunch

I will be putting in the food order this evening. Accordingly, if you plan to come on Saturday but haven't yet said so, now is the time to speak up!

Thus far I have the following names for Saturday evening's curry - which is now full. We have all 16 places filled (if I have wrongly listed you as coming, please let me know if your name needs removing from the list, so we can create a vacancy).

Kevin Ashman
Alf Claber
Dick Cribb
Collin Daffern
Anne Hegerty
Chris Jones
Gareth Kingston
Jenny Jones
Stewart McCartney
Rachael Neiman (and Adam Wiseman)
Ken Owen
Brian Pendriegh
Neil Phillips
Gill Shotbolt
Iwan Thomas

I had the pleasure of eating at the Apne just last night. The bill for four of us came to less than £43! I can also attest to the ale in the next-door Coopers Tavern being on fine form too. There's currently a choice of about 15 beers and ciders available, most of them drawn direct from the barrel.

"Community centre, historical gem and total beer paradise, the Coopers Tavern is an evocative expression of the English pub.
I’m reminded of the words of James Joyce who said: “History is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.” At the Coopers Tavern history is a wonderful dream which I, for one, would never want to leave."
Adrian Tierney-Jones/The Daily Telegraph


For Friday night the plan is to meet up at the 'Brewery Tap' bar/restaurant at the National Brewery Centre (free parking). Hopefully all those staying in the Burton area Friday night can make it there for 8pm latest? We will either camp there for the evening, or move on to somewhere like the Burton Bridge pub/brewery or the allied Devonshire Arms.

For those who need it, my mobile number is +44 seven eight six seven 972 six four o.

I've got a Land Rover ride to the train station sorted so, to paraphrase Mr Goldwyn, include me in.
