Over the summer it will be more difficult to get volunteers as our usual crowd may be off on holiday. So if you're planning on coming along to cheer someone on: you could volunteer as a marshal! You still get to cheer and you get a warm feeling inside knowing you've helped out.

As there are no trains next weekend, I'll be doing a bit of touring so I'll see you in a fortnight. Untill then,
