LOITERERS NEWS FLASH:
Dear More Problems in Stoke Poges. Stop telling lies and they will stop - however the answer is yes - use rubber gloves and pliers if it's big else tweezers if small. Dear Horrified of Hillingdon - This is quite common among men of a certain age and disposition and could be taken as a compliment, frankly I wouldn't worry about it provided nothing is being soiled. Regards Aunty Kitty

All rides start at 10.00 am from the Market Square in front of Uxbridge underground station unless otherwise stated. (ARCHIVED RIDES & EVENTS).
