Arrangement will be as usual, small fee for the meal (£6) and bring your own beverage. Usual people bring sweets if you are able. I will email also.
For those entering the SPLASH IN send your images to me (not JP) . They should be 1400 x 1050 pix and you can enter upto 3. There does not look like being many people entering so if you have images put them in as higher chance of walking away with a prize.
