2 Years ago today…. WET, WET, WET

Sat 8th December away at Accrington ~ it was decided it would be our “Branch Xmas Do”. With 4/5 of the branch in attendance excitement was at fever pitch.

Leg 1 of the journey was to get to York for a beer at Punchbowl Spoons

9.04am… let’s do this

1 of our small group poses as a “professional driver” specialising in Travel Logistics…. as instructed we board the train at York with said professional driver waiting at Stalybridge…..

Professional driver my arse ~ we sail past agreed stop onto Manchester

Quick beer in Manchester with a load of crazy office working fuckers drinking before 6pm in hilarious Christmas jumpers, (it’s not all work, work, work!?). Load of cranks with fun socks not our bag ~ crystal maze/Game of Thrones types

Stalybridge missed…..

~ we head off to meet the “Stalybridge Simpleton”

Onto Accrington…. load of beer at Grey Horse

Grey Horse ~ plastic hanging baskets!!!! Worlds gone mad??

Pisses it down all game ~ gets to about 60 minutes and it’s abandoned…

Rain of “biblical proportions??” ~ but actually happening as opposed to religious made up nonsense.
UFO also captured in picture!
Homeward bound
Much maligned…. but… Heated seats, wet clothes…. foolish not to remove said wet clothes??
Absolutely nothing to see here ~ just a quick 6.15pm piss stop…

Another successful Christmas do in the bag, we are facing another trip to Accrington.
