We are travelling down on Tuesday and it will prob take at least 5 hours - so I'm not sure we'd make it by closing time! owever - we will most certainly need a coffee by Wednesday!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I came over to Brisol on the train on Saturday for a tutorial. I had planned to bring the bike so I could cycle over for a cuppa but had a flat so couldn't make it :cry:

Will try harder next time.

p.s. can anybody help out or do you need food handling qualifications or anything? I shall be coming over to Brisol for tutorials about once a month so might be able to spare a few hours.

Shame you did not make it. There are always jobs to be done so I am sure we could put you to work! :wink:

I'm in Bristol BS5 9SS. It must be really close to me, so count me in for a visit, and to see if I can contribute in some way. I must say, I haven't noticed it yet though - is it still going? I will look around next time I'm shopping up there.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind.

This sounds interesting - is it very fair from the train station or City College?

I don't have a car (don't want one either ;)) but I do pop into Bristol on the train some saturdays to attend Open University tutorials at the College.... is it somewhere I could walk/get a bus too from there?

It is just a short walk from Lawrence Hill Station

If you put on BBC1 at 12.30 on Sunday you will be able to see the inside as me and Dave did a bit for the Politics show in there (and on my allotment).

2ndratemind - just pop in for a chat if you want to help! We can always do with more DVD's, CD's, LP's etc if you feel like donating. Actually I might just pop there now.

Wow - here's a weird idea : why don't we all meet up ? Or is the shop not big enough ? Kick it around and see what you all think............... :scratch:

Well I've got a few camping chairs and I don't mind standing if it means giving up my chair for a girly........ :lol:

What time does the shop close ?

Also, and this is slightly off-piste I guess, what do people think about having a local Bristol area self-sufficientish group that meets up to exchange ideas, share skills and knowledge and discuss what has been discussed ? I guess that this is as much down to the approval of Dave and Andy as much as anybody, but what do people think of this in principle ? :scratch:

Is the shop still there ? There are some pretty faceless flats opposite T**co's now so are you near that ?

Cheers
