Do you have a larger pic of that?

From what I can see of Brent's CD player I think it has a sump & automatic submersible pump in the corner to take care of tea & coffee!!!

We can use my pseudo people carrier for the trip which will seat 6 in reasonable comfort. Chesterfield/Sheffield/Doncaster is an easy enough run around.

Tim, to make it easier on you we could drive to your house and leave the cars if you have parking on the road or driveway?

I'll definately be there, wherever there is, but I'm on holiday from the 23rd of August for 1 week. I realise that this may encompass the best time for some people but, if it's possible, it would be great if it could be either after or (more likely) before the 23rd. To make up for it I'd be willing to ferry people from the South Wales area to wherever it's being held.

Sounds great! Only spanner could be me bringing a guest or two, in which case I'd simply drive as well, no big deal.

Simon

ps - yes, the cd63 there makes a superb espresso!

Aww, and I presume you removed the 6 dedicated coffee regs? You'll have nothing to show at the meet now!

Default Venue offer

If all else fails, I am sure I can arrange to use our village hall.

Pro:
Cheap (£15/night, I expect not too much for whole weekend)

Car parking right beside it for about 20 cars, more along roadside.

Has bar/kitchen/loos.

Lots of seats, tables etc.

About 5 minutes drive from M50 junction 2, so easy for Wales, M5/M4/M6.

Acoustics not terrible.

Pub about 200yards away down main road.

Nice part of the country for keeping partners etc happy.

Anti:
Only one big rectangular room.

Acoustics nothing special.

Not much accommodation within walking distance, have to go to nearby towns (Malvern, Ledbury or Upton, 10-15 minutes drive), unless you can get into B&B or have caravan or happy to camp.

Nearby pub is terrible - better one about a mile away.

Long way for people from E side of UK.

If partners want proper shopping, nearest place is Cheltenham.

If anybody thinks this is worth following up, I can take some photos, and get prices.
