Well, the felt arrived today, so fingers crossed I'll have the Simar reassembled for the weekend. If not, I may end up doing it there.

I will have my full tool kit available and plenty of Swarfega if you need it.
For those wanting to get dirty I'm bringing the Trusty 3-speed, Greyhound Plough and plough seat, then for Sunday morning I'll be pushing around the Norton Trusty with Cambridge Rolls- nothing too strenuous!
Pork pie and cider, plus a few bottles of Old Speckled Hen should keep the tent warm on the Saturday night.
See you all there!
