My taste buds will be shot by the time we hit Cotteridge Wines: but I’ll try to be relatively sober on arrival, otherwise I’ll end up buying a bucket load of bottles and not have enough hands or bag space to carry them home!

If you’ve never been before I think you’ll be impressed: good of them to prepare for us too (plus tasters of course).

It’s local and it’s a winner so i don’t see why not. In fact, while I’m in the area, I might see if I can bag the entire Aston Manor range of top quality beverages.


I know the Rep for Aston Manor if you’re serious...

I’ll aim to see you and Ruth on the Friday too. But if not, then certainly Saturday. Gurd wants to catch up with you too.

Has anyone tallied the attendees? I have one more person who wants to come (assuming Richy hasn’t already booked his (Gurd’s) spot. Is there any space left?

After my unforeseen disappointment and not being able to make it that is one space unless its already been taken.

I’ve not reserved a spot for Gurd yet, I’ve got Roberto, Chris and I.

Just me, some beers and my scratchings from Shropshire.

I’ve no idea who the rep for Aston Manor is!

I’d be curious to know final tallies. Also, how many guys will be traveling from London on the morning? The spreadsheet would suggest five but I don’t know if there are guys who just haven’t filled in the sheet.

There are 7 folks on the train from London.
Ken, Leighton, Jack, Ian, Fergus +1 and myself.

As to other folks wanting to bring friends - this is not a problem there should be plenty of room.

However the bus has been a bit poorly and is in at the garage at the moment so need to confirm all is well in next few days.

If not I will hire a minivan/coach from somewhere. If this is the case we need to nail down numbers in order to get the best price based on the exact number of seats required.

Yeah, a tasting of about 20 beers on the train on the way up should set us up nicely for the day. I’ll be at Euston reasonably early as I don’t want to risk any delays on the way up from Kent.
