I've discovered that the extension at the William Morris Gallery which houses the cafe, WC's, and temporary exhibition room, closed this week for the whole of April for maintenance work. What timing! Not to worry though, the permanent exhibition is not affected, and they have created a pleasant pop up cafe in the front grounds of the gallery, as well as providing alternative WC's. I just wanted you to know so that it is not a surprise on the day. There are other places too along the route where we can take a break.

    Wonderful and so interesting to see how all the wonderful wallpaper designs I have seen over the years came about.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
