Wife went to physio today - she was a day late, got a little bit of stick from me, Anyway I have been telling her all week, I am fishing this Saturday and Sunday - Saturday at Mallory and Sunday at York. Even going to pick my Saturday bait up tomorrow, angling shop have saved me 50 big maggots. Now just seen it is MONDAY - at least I might have stood a chance if I had been the only one there.
Ah, this is where his website rules don’t necessarily match what he puts on his FB page or says pre match at his charity bashes so I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the rules I reluctantly posted yesterday (post #174).
He’s happy to let you trim the far bank before a match (as long as your sensible). Near side - might be able to as long as you leave min. 12” high vegetation??
The rules posted on page 1 I’ve gleaned from his FB postings pre charity matches and festivals, so not necessarily all inclusive but most likely the main Glebe rules.
Re breakfast, I call in a McDonald’s I pass on the way.
Someone’s previously mentioned a walk in Premier Inn brekkie at Leicester Forest but in terms of local breakfast cafes near the Glebe, I can’t think of any (I’m not local).
