Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

Thanks Ken.
A few of us have booked the Roseleigh guesthouse for 3 nights, arriving Thursday afternoon. It's a door or 2 along from the Westminter :D

Re: R.I.P. Andrew McGeever

Yes Lizzie, Andrew and I saw Leonard perform live at Edinburgh Castle, when I stayed over for a couple of days at his home, and Andrew came to us when Leonard played in Liverpool. John and I also saw his son Daniel play with his band in a club in Chester one night. I feel so sad that that he didn't ...

R.I.P. Andrew McGeever

It is with great sadness that I inform old-time members of the Forum of the passing away of an early member and contributor here, mostly to the poetry section.

The directions appear to say that when landing at Barcelona airport the only way to get to Vic is to travel into the centre of Barcelona to either Sants station or Placa Catalunya. Is this correct?

Thanks

Re: Hydra 2015: thank you, Friends!

Thank you to all my old friends who sent John and I a postcard from Hydra. Miraculously it arrived this morning, a very speedy delivery! Sorry we couldn't be with you this year but we have fond memories of our 3 previous visits. Hope to see some of you later in the year for the walking weekend in Sp...

Thanks Jarkko,

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015)

Bea, Jarkko,
Is there any news yet on accommodation for our weekend?

And should we consider booking flights to Barcelona before prices rise?
