Gromit Unleashed

I dont know if anyone is aware but Aardman (who had done chicken run, arrrr pirates, shaun the sheep (headway memory lost special feature), Im forgetting Morph ect and of course good old Wallace and gromit) in the past 2/3 years have done trails other cities have done them we did a gorilla and shaun trail as well as gromit, devon did a rhino trail, southhampton did a zebra trail, bath did a cat trail anyway the reason why we do it is to raise money for the children hospital call the Grand Appeal (I have at least 6 mini figurines that I brought either online or from their shop in one of our shopping centres) and I went there went it first opened in 2001 (even shocked one of the head people who was involved in KHINE that I remember) So if you want something to do with kids and snap some photos it will sooon be time and I am soooo looking forward to it

I enjoy reading about Brunel and his legacy! Some truly amazing constructions for the time but some absolute flops.

Love history especially local always have.

I’ll ask mum to scan female brains as they walk past at lunch, that way I can put a face to your name.

What do u like about Brunel?

Stowford is ok. Ashton Press is good.

That would be cool. U ever been to Thatchers?

People around here have their own orchards and make a lot of cider.

Few pints of that and u know about it

Reply

I prefer stowford to ashton press, its still good I did go a cider farm in street, This may horrify you but I dont like Thatchers or Black Thorn and I knew someone who ran their own cider farm in Cheddar
