reason and find this tantalising or frustrating, but I don't see what else
I can do to be certain anyone interested sees it.)

The Adam and Eve have said that they are entirely happy to have us there,
and will provide food during the afternoon and evening.

They would like to know numbers, roughly, about a week in advance, and also
if there are vegetarian/vegan/non-lactose/non-gluten requirements for the

I have now completely lost track of who is and isn't definitely or probably
going to be there, so I'd be very grateful if anyone who is coming could
send a mail to me or a post to here saying "me" and if anyone else is
coming with them, so I can give a head-count to the landlord.  Even if you
know I know, I might forget you if I don't have something definite to jog
my memory!

The other thing is that I said (rashly) that I would try to sort out places
for people to sleep if they wanted to stay in Bristol for the night after
the event.  I know Charlie offered a bed to someone, (Ven?) but wouldn't
have room for others of her party, and I suspect there may be others who'd
find it easier not to try to get back to far-flung bits of the country on a
Saturday evening...

Again, please could anyone who is in need of B&B, and hasn't got a friendly
local with a spare room, let me know what they want?  A top-price
affordable would also be a help.  I'll try to find either B&Bs or a small
hotel as close to the pub as I can for those who want.  BUT

I'm going on holiday from 1st--21st August, so I shan't be in Bristol to do
this during that three weeks.  Ideally I'd like to have this info within
the next couple of days, so I can sort out at least provisional bookings
before I leave town.  Please?

Thanks to all.
