    Hi Guys! Happy New Year! Moving off in January is very brave – I think we will make you two ‘Honorary Northerners’. Have fun – hope we cross paths during 2014. We have a bit of a plan – doing the Chesterfield, Trent, Witham, The Wash (scary!) Nene, Great Ouse,Thames (and London rivers) Kennet and Avon – we have invested in a Gold licence to do all this and guess it will take all year. Keep well, best wishes, Charles and Sally
