A very nice barbecue at the Savernake Forest many thanks to Zenon Krafft for organising and to Tim Bolderston and Ian Cummins for an interesting ride in. A lot of people worked hard to provide the food and facilities – thank you! Despite an early shower on Sunday morning the weather was very good.

Michael Doré Thanks to those who organised and manned the BBQ. First one I have been to and sorry I have missed them in the past.

Bob Mack A great day out and a bonus that the weather stayed fine for the duration. Thanks to everyone involved, top draw effort.

TVAA, Life Saving Ap – Dave Tomlinson

I am very grateful to John Broad for bringing the Thames Valley Air Ambulance 3 Words Save Lives (using What3Words) to my attention. Basically, this little app, which you can download onto your phone, will give your 3M x 3M position square in three words X.Y.Z which you can then give to the emergency services. This could easily be a life saver if you need help away from a landmark and is MUCH easier than quoting gps coordinates! It is also quite good fun for instance the What3Words square for the BBQ on Sunday at Postern Hill is ‘trucks.worksheet.widely’ – although hopefully we won’t need TVAA…… For more information and to download the app see
