Took the boy's to Wicksteed Park the other day and notice they were putting on this event - i am thinking of taking a couple of C5'S along but before i make contact is anyone else interested in coming along to one or both day's - It is also ideal for those of you with kids as it's based in the theme park :

Sorry, I was reminded yesterday that the wife is holding a mind, body and spirit event on the Saturday and I'm not sure if I will be able to come along on the Sunday, will let you know, will try and sort something out as it looks a good day out, I will also have to sort out my motor first and if you've had any luck with my pod Marty before I get Charlie5 back on the road.

Hi Andy working on a batch of Pods next week will keep you updated - I have a spare one you can borrow if you are off the road because of it  ????
