  1. It seems like one-way traffic at the moment so, just to balance things out a bit, it might be interesting to hear if there are any staunch Boris supporters on this forum - maybe via another thread to avoid us heading even further off-topic?

Full credit to those who organised the socially distanced seating inside and outside the marquee and the varied playlists from all the DJs was enjoyable after such a long absence of events.
