Latest update info in a message from JKeith, he advises that there is a large field behind the "Sun Inn" which shows cars parked. (see Google maps)
Not sure if it belongs to the pub or maybe just village parking, but we should look in there first to see if we can get all the cars parked together so we don't offend plod.... Cop
It's only yards from the cafe Dance Tap That's our exercise for the day sorted.

The car park in question is directly across the road from the Cafe, it holds about 25 cars and is £3 for 2 hrs parking, last time we were there the ticket machine threw a 'benny' and was dishing out free tickets so it cost us nothing to park there.
I for one will try the car park first and see what the situation is, that will be my first choice for parking as opposed to the second choice, a field.

Oy, Ejets. And what precisely is wrong with a perfectly good field?? Some of my best friends live in fields. Plus we all know that YFs only drink in the course of their extensive charity fundraising, by the way.

Hi Steve, your quite welcome to come along to Pooley Bridge, I'm sure they will increase the seating for us. We'll be seated and eating at 1 pm.

This is turning into the run of the year, good weather forecast as well, happy days thumbsup

Oh dear, oh dear - another example of social media size zero, teeth whitening body airbrushing by a voracious modelling industry on a poor oppressed sheep. And its factually incorrect - everyone knows sheep only have teeth in the lower jaw EJets. Looks cool though - might try this on some of our tups.

My suspicions confirmed Keith - you're the reason why sheep around Corbridge are constantly looking over their shoulders, mate! I reckon you only come on these runs to spot fresh ovine talent when we go across the moors (ovine?? - look it up).

I've heard the sheep's reputation is in tatters as well, mind you.

I was testing these out with Keith P yesterday. Might be worth looking into for next years runs out. Walkie Talkies. They worked perfectly between mine & keith's cars, and also come with a hands free ear piece.

Might make the runs a bit more exciting if we can call each other fat bastards from time to time.

Only £23 per unit, I have 2 of them.

Ill bring them along on the run if anybody wants to take a look and test out.

Cheers.

That'll be fine - Keith's special friends only eat grass anyway.
