Yeah!!! The RV is nearly upon us!! Ash, did you get any confirmation from Spanner or Mark about going?? Left a message in the answer phone but haven't heard back. Should probably give them a call.

Roll on next Friday :o)

I'm afraid that, unless you are accompanied by an adult, you will have to be 18 to attend the Cornwall RV. There isn't insurance to cover unaccompanied children.

Ruth, I'm sorry but think about what your asking - Your now asking me to provide a service where by I contact you via post (!?) to inform you about all the latest on new events? This website is offered as free, it's non-commercial, I don't make any money from it. I get asked to let people know about events all the time and guess what I provide a free Event's section on my website where people from all over the world can check for events, it's centralised and only requires you to check if your interested - I'm not going to start contacting everyone individually to inform them about events.
