Arrived home after the journey from hell, accident at j18 on m6 held us up for 40 minutes then two road closures nearer home meant about a ten mile detour.
Sandra and I would like to thank Margaret and Frank for being excellent hosts and raconteurs (you can use that one in the Scrabble Frank) and hope that this meet continues in the future, we would also like to thank everyone else for making us so welcome on what was only our fourth meet with Motorhomers.
Sandra hopes that the next time we meet up she will be a bit more mobile.

A great weekend at Franks field despite the weather at times being a tad BBQ unfriendly.
A fantastic couple of BBQ's were had though and all sat out in the sunshine with our drinks and bbq'd meats etc.

Many thanks to Frank and Margaret for putting us up in their back garden and to Adele and Ken for their marshalling and bingo etc. and Michael for really being in charge of everything and for the jokes.

Didn't expect anything else but a great meet at this location ,thanks to Frank and Margaret for their hospitality, and for everyone else who attended and helped to make it a great social gathering. It was not all booze and food as we managed a bus ride to Liverpool and Southport and a couple of games of bingo.If anyone has a decent bingo machine Adele would be interested in buying it off you .Also a thanks to Ken for making sure we kept on the right track on entry and exit, and i didn't need a push. :-) :-)
