The Belle Vue 30th July 2008


This was our first meeting at the Belle Vue, and hopefully not our last as it was a lovely evening and appreciated by the locals who joined in when they could - a really friendly atmosphere, good beer, and enough room. I'm sure we will be going back.

As this is very close to Helen's place, she could find no excuse not to come. It was great to see and hear her.
