When I play trains, it costs me about £20 in train fare to get back to Sussex (it went DOWN this year, I nearly fainted!) plus 50 miles of petrol per round trip from my parents house.  What I really meant was that after it's cost you the money to actually turn up to offer your services for nothing, would you be happy that somewhere would actually charge you to work.  I fully expect any cleaning expedition to Lyneham to cost me travel and accommodation, but I'd be less enthusiastic if I also had to fork out more money when I got there to be given a job... ;-)  That's what I was trying to say!

Just a quick update on this, and thanks to all of you that have expressed an interest in helping us out.  Unfortunately things have conspired against us in getting this sorted out in the near future; however, we expect that we will be able to adress this mid to late February and as soon as I have anything in concrete, I will let you know.

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

Hi there,

Looks like we will be looking for cleaners and helping hands for packing away the mountain of gear we have accumulated over two years at Lyneham for the next two weeks starting 14th March.

If those who have PM'd John could get back in touch with either him or myself we will get the wheels in motion.

I volunteered the first time because I had some time off work, but I'm working solid for the next two weeks, sorry.
