Advance warning

Not open next weekend due to play Blackpool

Don't think there will be a stroll along the Prom or any ice cream but plenty of retro gaming!

You're not exaggerating in the slightest. By Preston I couldn't even see the lines on the road, and a little further than that, I couldn't see the road. I've seen that kind of rapid fall in America, but never in the UK.

Balls of steel and experience driving in ice and snow meant that my progress of 40mph in those conditions meant I left the entire motorway in the dust. Got home only 30 minutes delayed - but I had the advantage of not dragging pins home...

We made good time until 11 when a 7 car pile up happened just past Stoke blocking the whole motorway . Sat there for 4 hours until the police removed the barrier and escorted us and a 100 odd vehicles back up the opposite carriageway to the junction. Got back at 3pm and yes WE did unload 10 Pins safely in 30 minutes.

Last year in June it took 6 hours daytime to get back due to the bloody M6. Martin deliveryman didn't want that hassle going up last Friday so took the toll road.
