There's no height restriction there. Just a couple of bollards to miss, amazing how many catch those!


Next Weds.... I won't be there. Just remind me and i'll let the staff on know you'll be parked down the side for a few hours ;)

It's week on wed, not this week bud.... both of us busy this week, and Andy needs to sort quite an annoying issue on the van before we head over..... using the run to test his wheels out, to see if the exhaust fix cures the engine management limp home fault he keeps getting.

Well Steve, looks like week Wednesday at the behest of my mate Andy from the market, looks like we will be visiting Hunstanton, so obviously, will be popping in.

Now he's not been down in ages (Got his mum's ashes to scatter somewhere fitting around the town), and got a much bigger van than he used to (Hi top, LWB Transit), and noting the carpark on the back of your place will likely have the height restriction, wondering if you have any pointers for alt street parking?

Granted, if we would be gone in 2 hours, would use Tesco's, but think we will be longer than that.

Service was done yesterday at Bramcote Crematorium, Nottingham.

Family from Wales, Middlesbrough and here in Long Eaton, along with some close friends in attendance, and even some faces I did not think would come, all in a rather civilised, non-religious send off.

The celebrant (In lieu of when you would expect a Minister etc), was amazing, even a few funnies thrown in, like getting my niece's age wrong, mum's some what dirty mind and that..... guess it helped that he had worked several jobs at the very same crem before, so knew the place very well.

To get to the point, the wake afterwards was done at The Bell Inn, Sawley (Short walk from Long Eaton Train Station, and quite close to my flat too), hosts being the Ian Lager (Manager), and Laura Beaty (Both long time friends of my sister's)..... guy's, you did a cracking job putting this on, making everyone feel welcome, despite accommodation being a bit tight..... Could not have asked for more.

Ian, pleasing to see, that even being a bit restricted what beers you can have on, you still managed to get the likes of Blue Monkey, Dancing Duck, and a few others on in your place, and the DD Aye Up was perfect.

Folks, if you are ever in the area, give this place a visit, you will find a selection for everyone (Yes I know, even Greene King), that will suit all tastes.
