A massive thank you to all those that helped out with the feedstation yesterday, its a real team effort and hard work filling, handling bottles, moving boxes etc etc.
Clearly from the feedback all our efforts were extremely well received and appreciated.
Special mention to Button Muchroom, Teapot 1 & Scmunks for organising admin, bacon, tea's and coffee's etc
Also a special mention to moms and dads, the kids of all ages were fantastic, I hope they enjoyed themselves.
Last of all, feedback.
One or two passed comments about OSB and how things could be better next year, I also have a few items to raise.
If there is anything you would like me to raise on your behalf please mention here of contact if you would rather raise privately then feel free to do so. I'll email OCB with all comments later in the week.
Thank you to everyone for volunteering to help out on Sunday, thank you to Schmunkee for organising all the admin with OSB

The verge is on the left hand side 1/3 mile before the feedstation (do not obscure the feedstation ahead sign) Transport - you will have to organise your own transport, arrange lifts, lots of people will be driving, if you aren’t able to arrange anything please come and see me and ill resolve
