Pete - if you can - invest in a Wixey (about £23) and see if you can get circle printed off and laminated (I might have one you can try next time we meet up) - Goto for us Dobbers lol

Likewise Pete. Not looking good for this weekend tho. Metcheck for the following weekend is looking very good but I don't trust forecasts 2 days in advance let alone 10 days!
