Any recommendations as to where to find accommodation for the Saturday night?


If you have tent or caravan there are a couple of places very nearby. Failing that I suspect the nearest hotel would be the Swan in Horning (5 min taxi ride) unless there are any B&B's in Ludham. I'll keep my eyes open next time I am there.

Sorry i've not said anything for a while but i've been on a shopping trip to Milan with my mum and auntie for a few days. We bought some lovely new clothes and shoes for a friends wedding. Anyway i've just raed this and am really disappointed coz this meet you are having is on the day we go home so we won't be able to come. Shame coz it looks like it might have been fun.

Unfortunately it is looking like being at the end of the worst week possible for SWMBO as we had been looking into the possibility of attending by boat but that isn't going to happen. So it'll probably be just me, and by car, but better that than miss it altogether.
