We presently have no lunch plans. Do we want to organise a bbq like previous work days (this would require someone bringing a portable bbq with supplies. I don't know if we have anything left in our old kitty). Byo lunches? Something else?

I'm more than likely out for tomorrow guys. I have a family party to attend, and even though I've tried to convince Beth to take the kids without me and that there is much fun to be had, she's not buying it.

See you at the next one.

Do we bring our own tools and wheelbarrow etc?

I believe they will have some tools for us but I'm bringing my own any way.

Pork roles sound good Nerf.

Great effort today guys. Thanks to everyone that turned up, I counted twenty plus riders and Adrian from Synergy Trial mentioned a few more that I missed.

There was some nice stone work done today.

Makes me think back this old post of mine showing rock armouring examples...
