Anyway, we went for breakfast at his cafe on Beake Avenue to sound him (and his food) out and we weren't disappointed. His breakfast was scrummy and I booked him on the spot to do a hog roast for us for the BAIT end of project party.
However, as much as I was looking forward to a hog roast, we just didn't get the numbers which would have made it viable, so Jamie suggested a BBQ. Yep, no problem I said and so it was.

So the rest of the party. We prepared the hall and it did look good. We didn't have many finds as the nice ones are at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum Exhibition (Roman Empire: Power and People).
We were able to display examples of the different types of pottery and had examples of all the reports produced, including the DBA, geo-phys, pottery assessments etc and literature about the Herbert Exhibition and about CADAS.

Our guests included members of MOLA who geo-physed our fields, Dr Kevin Leahy (CADAS Vice-prosident) and his wife, Ben Wallace and his family from Warwick HER, Ian Soden (DBA), AOC representatives (Cat and Tara), our very patient farmer and his wife (Steve and Alison Deeming), the lady whos fault it was in the first place (!) Thelma Gee, my committee and of course a number of those very important people who we couldn't have done without, OUR VOLUNTEERS.
All in all it was a great day, helped by the glorious weather we had for the duration.
