Directions to my house by train and car are below.
People can arrive any time after 1pm, later is fine.
If you are driving up from Oxford and you are happy to give people a lift, please could you put a note up on the meetup message board so people can arrange to meet.
If you want to cook proper Spanish food at my house, please contact me via the email option, or leave a message, as I only have one cooker and hob, and limited space, so I will have to limit numbers for proper cooking.
If you can bring tapas or other food that can be warmed up in the microwave that would be great.
If you are not into cooking just bring some sausages, salad or bread.
If you are coming by car and can bring some folding garden chairs that would be very helpful.
Address: 103 Coopers Gate, Banbury, OX16 2WD. Mobile 07986 829184.
