It really doesn’t seem like 5 years since I started this blog, but the time to celebrate has come round again. This time we have decided to get together in Bristol on the 8th February – any time between 12noon and 7.00pm. Although the location is yet to be confirmed, it will be within easy distance of Temple Meads Station.
