I would very much like to be there, but on Friday I am taking my mother (who
lives in Cheshire) to hospital for some minor surgery, and I suspect I may
have to stay on for a day or two. I'm sure the event will be full of
interest (and of course I am keen to know how Leckhampton got on in the
website competition!). Amy Woolacott will be there to set up a stand with
some exhibits showing local sporting activities.
