:lol: Fingers crossed we should/could be about either of those dates.

Two car parks again? I don't think there is a cafe here though?

Which one & What time please?

I'll be bringing hopalong with me! :roll:

Yes, he smashed his bike up at Silverstone Track day and now walks funny, as well as being unable to move his arm because of snapped tendons in his shoulder!

Hi everyone Buddy would love to join you all on the 11th, suggest the top car park gives most options for walking.

Not sure what the situation will be by then, at the moment there are cattle and sheep etc on the centre and very top of the Beacon so I walk Buddy the other way where there are four fields and good pathways. At some point towards winter the animals get moved into the fields and I have to swop walks! Will probably have to see what the situation is on the day. In my experience doodles and cowpats not a good combination!! No cafe but plenty of picnic benches.

What time do you tend to meet, we can fit in to suit.

Usual meeting time is 11. Is everyone happy with 11?

How do you get to the top carpark?

Everyone might know already but just in case a reminder that it costs £1.50 to get into the Beacon car park, (best to have correct change!) See you there.

Would anyone object to me coming along to meet some of your dogs....I'm looking to buy a Doodle, and would like to meet some and have a chat with any of you about good breeders etc?
