    I'm sure the pictures will start coming very soon once everyone has unpacked & had a good nights sleep.

    This years event was the biggest yet & despite thunderstorms the weather on balance was pretty good. Weather & numbers aside everyone seemed to have a great time which is what it's all about.

    This year we had visitors from New Zealand (Robtz), Germany (Roland & Klaudia) & Belgium (Wim) plus from Thailand, Col Sun & wife(?) - sorry didn't catch your name :oops: who visited on both days. Great effort! Special thanks to @Robtz for helping me set up & dismantle the display etc & sterling duty keeping the tea & coffee coming over the weekend!

    Many thanks to everyone who attended.

    We also had the Stove Wanging contest in memory of Bryan Miller & raised £55 for St Oswalds Hospice in Durham & thanks to a donation of stoves to sell from @salan3 & Geoff Boyling we also raised £37 for Help for Heroes.

    @Simes & @Sarah Foley did an excellent job again with their pizza oven & mine was honestly the best pizza I can remember having & we even had free ale with the pizza's courtesy of Terry aka @Trojandog & Roland aka @rollschmidts & Klaudia from Germany. This raised a goodly sum for a Prostrate cancer charity. Apologies I forget the sum raised but @Sarah Foley can remind us!

    Well done everyone!

    It was a real pleasure seeing everyone & looking forward to next year.

    It is, Jean. I'm not allowed to say how much Matt actually paid for it but it was marked £8 on the bottom. If I were you, I'd offer him £6 for it and then at least he'll have made a profit on the deal.

    I just can't believe the jamminess of that lad - if he fell in the River Trent, he'd come up to the surface holding the rest of it, complete with an unbroken shade... ](*,)

    You’re not joking, are you David? I kind of hope that you are and I won’t feel so bad.

    As true as I'm sitting here typing this, Jean. O:)

    It could have been worse though - at least it wasn't a black one. Then I'd have been crying my eyes out... :-& :doh: :cry:

    My ears are burning, someone must be talking about me. Just thought I’d put a tank in it.8]

    To all at CCS and CPL

    I would just like to say a belated but heartfelt thank you to everyone (far too many names to mention) at Newark this year for making a first time visitor feel so welcome and included.

    I had a wonderful time putting faces to names, chatting, chilling and making/eating pizza and just generally enjoying looking at others lamps and stoves.

    An especially big thank you to Ross and all involved for organizing the annual event, I only wish I had not been so needlessly shy and attended years ago!

    I look forward to attending next year and will definitely book the time off work as soon as a date is confirmed, and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

    Should also mention the excellent photographs already posted, they certainly put mine to shame!

    Regards Jeremy
