there's a short walk from the tram and a left turn toward Bolton Road Station on the East Lancs Railway, and the Trackside is on the platform, hence the name!

HHGG . . . ? Sorry I must be a bit slow today . . . ?

I could put my copy of "The End of Suburbia" on the table I suppose. Or "Cuba" would probably be a bit more optimistic! Very Happy

I guessed what HHGG was but don't know what's on the back cover, but assume it's the end of the world as we know it? Or does it depend on the issue of the book? Rolling Eyes

Will be off t'internet now 'til Sunday so if the meeting's cancelled at the last minute rest assured that I turned up and had a drink on behalf of you all! Hopefully.

Cheers!

Only a few hours to go guys! Very Happy We're getting the tram from Piccadilli around 7 - 7.15pm so not sure what time that'll get us to Bury.

Andy - I can't wait to see what PO mascot you'll have chosen. Cool

We had a really good time too. Very Happy Great to meet new people and a great venue. Well done to Candy for travelling so far to meet us!

I especially like that we were the last people in there and had be be asked to leave as they were closing. Rolling Eyes
