    I went there too Stef - but for three years, a very long time ago now...

    @ Alan: I got me a "Desmond" in the Geological Sciences Class of '84 - what's your story?

    I was a 9- 5 'er Trench Digger, many years before your stretch!
    Still got the scars...
    Did well in Mick's Cafe race though.

    Never did enter the race, Alan, but much kudos to you for doing so. Did you have to resort to the chuck-up in the Mermaid Fountain after the mandatory finishing-line beer, or did you manage to keep it all in?

    Thinking about it, I never did finish one of Mick's legendary Mixed Grills. Somewhere in the vaults I have a photo of one of these gargantuan meals, but it would take me ages to retrieve it. If I recall correctly, the meal consisted of mash, roasts, chips, bacon/gammon, sausages, chop, fried egg, beans, peas, mushrooms, onion rings, tomato, black pudding, fried bread, buttered bread, gravy and a huge mug of tea or a beer. Have I missed anything?

    @BG! -

    It was a pint of tea in a china mug.
    For the race day, Mick very kindly provided a dustbin adjacent to the table, just in case... Fortunately didn't need it. I always felt sorry for the houses with the low walls to their front gardens though...
    I managed the entire race with no chuck-ups. Couldn't face eating / drinking anything for days afterwards though...

    It's a shame the cafe's gone now - we could have arranged a "Seniors' Race" 😈
