In reply to M1EYP:
“White Base” - Lancashire County Council Ambulance Control in Accrington 0930 on Sun still on. Oh !!! to long for the days when it was a proper ambulance service and a lot busier too. So I worked for “Red Base” but it was all Lancashire County. Big white Bedford CD ambulances - beautiful. Alas those pioneering days are long gone. Please bring a change of footwear as Ermintrude hates dirty boots
We have to be in Sainsbury’s cafe at 1010 to collect another traditional “SOTAeer” so a good opportunity to have breakfast.
Tom, my memory is a wee bit hazy but I seem to remember that Marianne was at the Grasmere weekend one Jan. If memory serves me correct then the weather was superb and we had an adventurous time. Oh for those totally mad old days.
I shall be taking Wensleydale cheese and biscuits, 1 dozen scones, butter, jam and cream plus a bottle of wine (and I do not consume alcohol) could people please ensure that they bring some for themselves otherwise it becomes difficult to transport. Did try to find a camel to transport the goodies but had to settle for a dromedary instead.
Can someone please bring a corkscrew and could you bring your own tin glasses to drink out of. Additonal bottles of wine would be apreciated but remember some of us may be driving so be careful.
DO NOT FORGET THE SILLY HATS
