LET IT BE KNOWN THAT:
UxLo TV is currently off air.

Nobbiest Loiterer Event Ever - Battle of Britain Bunker visit 18th December at 2.00 pm Stuart is organising this (so you know it's going to be well nobby). Please let Stuart know by email or in person ASAP if you will be attending. The tour last approx. 2 hours, and includes a presentation in the Bunker Operations Room, a 20 minute film and a look around the museum in the Bunker. At the moment, the tour is free but donations are encouraged. The Bunker is a Grade 1 listed building, without a lift so unfortunately, visitors have to be able to manage the stairs, which have 76 steps down ... and of course, 76 back up. There are chairs to sit on during both the presentation and the film.

This year's dancing elves, created by Tony "Hoppo" Hopkins, can be found HERE

LOITERERS NEWS FLASH:
I am furious with you (you know who you are.) Because of your bad behaviour, these last few months, Santa did not appear at the Loiterers' Xmas Lunch. I hope that you are banned from attending next year as as I doubt that your behavior will improve. Aunty Kitty
