    Yes, but just think how much fun those payments represent!

  4. Yes, but I could have paid for everything all at once instead of ringing twice

    Who else is going to Leicester?

    I rather think it's at capacity, I'm sure there'll be lots of familiar faces there!

    I'll be there - only because Andrea needs my car!! Heather will be there too this time. So 5 of us now.

    We'll be very happy to see both of the Elves there!

    I'm definitely going to be there, so is Mary, so that's six! And likewise, nice to see both Elves.

    Nice to have something to look forward to, especially as Arena cancelled the holiday for next year. I'm counting down the sleeps and getting excited.

    I'm very surprised that there weren't enough takers for the French holiday next Spring, I'd have thought it would be very popular

  15. Not long now until we all meet up again

    I think it may have been the cost of the Arena trip that out people off
    I'm sure when I looked the single supplement took it from £1500 to nearly £2000 with dinners on top and the cost of getting to the start point & back

    Helen, I agree that it was probably the cost that put people off the French trip

  18. I think by the time I'd paid Arena, got to the start point & back, ate & bought some treats it could have been £2500
    Can have a lot of bike weekends for that:)

    Because Mary and I were going together, it wouldn't have been as expensive for us, and we were going to pick the coach up at either Fairford or Folkestone, so that wouldn't have been as bad either, but I can see how the costs could have risen alarmingly. They offered us a trip on an embroidery holiday in Madeira instead, but we would have had to get to Gatwick by 5.00 in the morning, so that was a big no-no. Never mind, see you all at Leicester instead.
