    New world record for the 100 metres. Took me 12mins to get from the bus stop to my front door last night. (And that’s only because I found an abandoned zimmer frame at the bus stop)

    Fantastic night! And thanks to all you party animals that made it another great evening of fun. Oh yes, great pics Jo (and I've also seen the video :-).

    Hey all, this one's just great for those that like to chat, mingle, meet new people, and finish the evening with a bit of bop on the dance floor, with the music alternating between DJ and Live band.

    So dont missout on a fun and energetic Thursday evening at the Abbey Bar.
