If you'd wanted more Custard you should have said! 8-P I simply didn't see any point in wasting it when the jug had been left to sit for a while.
If you want something ASK! You would've been handed it quite happily to indulge as ye wish. 8-)
Thanks once again for a good run and a grand day out. I sadly can't make the Rally but still looking forward to the next Club Run.

Thanks to the sun god, thanks to the staff at the Oystercatcher and especially a big thanks to Jacqueline, Dot, Chas and Ian for a great run and lunch venue.

Obviously my heartfelt plea for some custard did not reach your end of the table and anyway no doubt if you had tried to pass it along it would not have got past the three amigos in the middle opf the table especially since Chas did not get chips with his salad so was in withdrawal mode

The club runs just get better. Superb route,lunch and company. Chas, couldn't see a man eat his salad without chips. Thanks to Jacqueline, Dot, Chas and Ian

Another great day out. Thanks again to the organising team great run on superb roads.
I don`t think I should be picked on for simply winning a raffle prize. I do feel it was well overdue.
Wattie and Janet.

That was just a superb day. Thanks to Richard and Gavin for allowing the 'old bird' to have a ride in your newer cars, much appreciated - am saving the pennies now! Thanks too for all the organisation - great day.
