  1. Guys...mega apologies. It's been manic at my end with the start of the new financial year. I wasn't able to confirm a date with Ian. We provisionally booked the 10th before he went to India. I didn't catch him on his return and then he went on his holidays to France. I was in Atkinsons yesterday and he said that he still wants to do this. He's going to look at his diary this week and I'll speak with him again on Saturday. Again, please accept my apologies.
  2. I've got a pal thats interested too. So its looking: Me My pal Conchord + pal NJD1977 icnoble Stevogums MrBoots2u (date dependant) 8 in total, assuming we can all do dates. That works out at about £20. Once Ian confirms the date then I'll ask for a £10 deposit from everyone and I'll get it booked. Does that sound like a plan?
  3. You can get it on Amazon too. The correct spelling is Molykote 111
  4. You're very welcome. I was intending to do this by myself, but I thought that I'd see if any others were interested as well. We are aiming for after Easter, so that's be the 10th at the earliest. maybe the week after would be best (17th)?
  5. Hi guys...please accept my apologies as I've not been around. I've been laid low with trapped nerves in my spine. Mega, mega painful :eek: I caught up with Ian this morning. He is off to India next week for a shin-dig with some small coffee growers, so he suggested 2nd week in April. Costs are about £150 for a group, so if there's five of us we are looking at £30~ each. He's going to confirm dates on his return as The Hall is now open late on Fridays. Can you please confirm if you are still up for this on a Friday and at that rate?
  6. Occam's Razor would suggest that you've probably answered your own question.
  7. Had a quick chat with Ian Steel on Saturday morning....he can do aFriday evening. Still waiting for him to confirm dates and prices.....
  8. I think that a Friday is possible too.
  9. Hi there...sorry for the delay. I spoke with ian this morning and he was excited by the idea. He suggested a Thursday evening- a mix of roasting, cupping, milk frothing and brewing. He's going to get me some dates and prices this week. Once he does this I'll post on here. I guess the fairest way to proceed is to get some deposits to confirm attendance as long as the date is suitable for all. Watch this space!
  10. Why would a polite "No, thank you" be seen as having bad manners? I don't drink whiskey anymore after one particularly bad session on the stuff. The smell of it makes my stomach do loops now. Should I gulp it down if I was offered so as not to cause some imagined offence?
  11. Me Conchord NJD1977 Stevogums and possibly MrBoots depending on content and timings. I'll speak with them today and get their thoughts on group size, timings, content and costs!
  12. Into the Furnace, with Christian Bale. It was OK...Nothing exceptional.
  13. Jeez....I'm sure that he makes a decent coffee, but he doesn't half come across as a bit of plonker. A face and a set of mannerisms that you'd never tire of slapping.
  14. OK, so we've got Me Conchord NJD1977 and possibly MrBoots depending on content and timings. What sort of money would you pay for a half day guys?
  15. I think that the Faema is in dry-dock at the moment? One of the springs is in pieces. Ian is gradually extending the opening hours, with evening music and so-on, so he might be flexible on the timings?
