not sure this warrants a separate thread, buuut. IF anyone coming along wants to stay in the bear, my room has a spare bed...

And we can't make it at all, so our room (4) is spare and available if someone hasn't already nabbed it.

Afraid we won't be back from our post-Nullus Anxietas holiday in time :-(

Looks like I got dropped from the list... sorted out a room today so it's time to re commit!

Are we costuming? Seems a shame not to!

Hello all, I was just pondering the possibility of popping down for the Saturday afternoon but am embarrassed to say that I've never been down to Wincanton before :oops: and before investigating train journeys/tickets I just wanted to confirm - is Templecombe the nearest station to Wincanton?

Also, I understand from the Drummer's meeting on Monday that taxi's from the station are somewhat erratic - are there any buses or handy broomsticks as an alternative?

Sorry we couldn't be there - only got back from Nullus Anxietas at 2pm on Saturday!

But we hope to be at the Story Museum on the 23rd/24th and the mural on the 25th.
