    Is it easily accessible by train? Might come up for it if it is.

    Looks like it's an hour north from Kings Cross on Great Northern to get to Huntingdon, and then maybe try and get someone to pick you up at the rail station or taxi it :)

    That's bad luck Marcel...By strange coincidence, @Keith GH Lear Jet is in maintenance as well.
    Otherwise he'd be winging it from Melbourne Australia; the pull of a UKAPS event is very strong.

    Initially planing a stop over myself at some Premier Inn nearby, bit of luck Son is coming too:) we have be trying to fit in a visit to Aquarium Gardens for some time, being able to meet my Peers makes it an opportunity not to miss and a Live scape too makes it Fantastic.

    The poll closed on Tuesday with an overwhelming 87.5% voting for meeting at Aquarium Gardens on Saturday 30 June. Not really surprising considering aquascaper and artist, Felipe Oliveira, will be holding a workshop, and Esther Mous (owner of Aquaflora) will be there too.

    If you can make it it'll be well worth the journey. Aside from meeting fellow UKAPS members, and the above, Aquarium Gardens is the UK's only dedicated aquascaping retailer. It has a great range of products, and hardscape, and an inspirational showroom with over 10 live aquascapes on display. Watch this space of further details...

    If you can't make it Saturday, there will be another aquascaping event at Destination Aquatics, Bedford MK42 0PQ, the next day - Sunday July 1st.
    Again, well worth a visit. It stocks an excellent range of hardscape at very reasonable prices.

    I will be more than happy to see some of you guys on the 1st. Hoping I can get to aquarium gardens as well but that will depend on how much work I still have to do for the Sunday
