Many thanks to everyone who attended. A cracking time was had by all! Many thanks to Project Orange for hosting us, Thunderbird Chicken for providing attendees with an obscene amount of fries and Kebab Feast for ensuring that I got post launch nutrition.
A special shout out to Deaks, who rocked up. I’m a big fan of her writing. She blends humour with her horror eloquently to make exceptional characters.
