Thanks to all those that supported us, particularly the Observers - at least the weather was kind to us, despite the Storm forecast. Thanks also to all those that supported the Land Owner, who makes the parking available and ran the Burger Bar, for British Heart Foundation and raised £150. If anyone wants to add to the BHF "Burger Bar" monies raised yesterday, you can here. Thanks - https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/laura-meehan7
