I was Welfare Officer (93-94 HAck), Tim was Education(?) (9?-9?, I can’t presume to know his hack status), Daz worked for Grip and was on Council (again,no presumption on hack status), most of us were involved with Rag and/or Events. And that’s before we spread the net to include FoS.

Ludlow has been designated Britain’s first Slow City. Typically, the Times sent an idiot to write the report and he spends the whole article looking down on the quaint country folks who prefer quality of life to crap burgers and overpriced coffee.

Young evil webmaster
