Hope you're not too hungover (Sarah Mitchell, John Rothwell, Michael Fraser, Tim Cain...) from the pub crawl last night. Luckily no-one needed carrying home by the wonderful Tom... It was pretty epic, and ended nicely on the pier. Apologies that the northern lights didn't want to come out to play, but hey, it's their loss, they missed an epic night. Kudos to Tim for organising the evening.
