An unofficial FGT was sprung upon us last year when we went to Spennymoor to visit Kath & Rob. This year's return journey takes us to Lanchester again and we could maybe have a little informal gathering at Yanni's Greek Restaurant. It's surprising how many people live within striking distance, so maybe we can all enjoy a Greek night in the snow. We'll be staying on a nearby campsite on Friday, February 6th - anyone interested and we'll get some tables booked.
Hi, Kath - we have a very busy time that weekend - going over to Cumbria to watch the Bay play on Saturday and on Sunday night we are going to see Barbara Dickson so were hankering after a quiet Friday. I know K & J cant go as Kelly doesn't finish work till 7pm - I will speak with himself again and see what we can come up with.
best wishes, Kath x

We have finally landed to a snowy welcome in 'sunny' Kent and we have contacted Yannis Greek Restaurant at 21, Front Street, Lanchester. We have booked a table for ten people on Friday night (6th) at 6pm for our Greek FGT. We are hoping to see Lynne & Arden, Joan & Arthur, Kath & Rob and Dave & Linda. Can you all please confirm that you can still make it? I've checked the forecast for Friday and, so far, it seems to be good.
I wasn't offended last year, merely disappointed as, if I remember rightly, the "get together" was very impromptu and on a Saturday and on that occasion we could have made it. I feel less bad now about being a no-show on Friday - we don't finish work till 5pm and get home to Northumberland around 5.45pm. Hope you all enjoy - we will raise a glass at home! See some of you in Roda in September.
