All.

Have a peek on roadworks.org when planning your routes on Sunday (you may have to zoom in to see the road works). @Delucas is not wrong - there's a lot going on around M20 / M26 over the weekend - and in Maidstone itself.

Think I'll be starting early and heading across country from where I live, just east of Redhill. Anyone who wants to tag along PM me.

And there's more .... Avoid the M20 if you can.

Oh no - I'm in he middle of a kitchen re-fit and my contractor partner has to work tomorrow, or the project will get delayed for weeks (complicated), so it's almost certain I won't be able to make it Very disappointed, but I hope you all have a great day and I'll see you all at the next one.

Normally, I'd agree, except I've been working on her kitchen, due to her lack of DIY prowess, and my kitchen has been in the 'bare plaster, no sink or worktops' condition for very nearly five years. I told you it was complicated!

By this time tomorrow, I should have a sink, a waste disposal, my d/w and w/d plumbed back in and somewhere to chop my salads.

Hi Delucas

Sorry I am not going to be able to make it.
I can't leave till quite late and looking at the traffic around the M20 being closed I will have to wait to the next time.

Thank you for organising and have a good day

Regards
Malcolm

Well, thanks @Delucas for organising another excellent event. A good time was had by everyone.

Good to see old and new faces - even an SL joined us for the day!! Despite the odd few drops the weather was kind and pleasantly warm. Not much sunshine but as the motorways were both closed there was a helluva lot of traffic on all the roads in and around Maidstone. I think 13 turned up so pretty good considering.

I've a group shot of all who attended here:

Leeds Castle Crew by vastmeridian, on Flickr

Full res version is viewable by clicking on the photo.

I've a couple of videos to upload onto Youtube and I'll embed them here when they're ready.

Hope everyone got home safe

I though there were a large number of very shiny trucks with lots of lights and stuff on them on the way home.....
