Lindsey Hulme says:Thanks for a great weekend again, 23rd, 24th Oct. We will be returnng next year. Breakfasts is great, even though I counldn't face it on Saturday morning. Keep laughing to myself when I think how dreadful we all must have looked on Friday night, trying to sing. But eh, I hope I looked better than Susan! Go girl,go. Pontefract and Swampy are great hosts and cheers for the large ones at the end of the night.
