    Hi All
    Friday evening I have requests for pick ups from Church Stretton Station early and late evening. As I don't live locally, would anyone care to volunteer to pick up Cathy (Backabush) from the Station (about 2k from the bunkhouse) at 22.11pm? If so perhaps you would exchange phone numbers with her. If not, no prob, I will do it.
    Cheers

    BTW the payphone at the bunkhouse is[masked]
