Sounds great.

Hope the new split works - any increase in canteen facilities welcome as long as it's not just junk food 0:) A bacon bun and cuppa to start the day fine, but a better lunch is much preferred.

I've enjoyed the two shows so far at Newark that I've got to - knocks the spots off the old hall for light and room :lol:

Time to ask Santa for hard cash.
