I've been told it is a private event so it seems that neither of us will be able to attend. Sorry.

I live near 'The Vache' in Buckinghamshire, and am concerned about the scrub and vegetation which is taking over the steps and whole mound of the Capt Cook monument. I have been in touch with the Chiltern Society, and they agree in principle to provide a task-force for cleaning this growth. Do you have a local contact, and then of course we need to approach the owners?
