    Sounds good we'll look forward to seeing you then!

    There's a premier inn at Brampton Hut services on the A14, about or 7-8 min drive from us. Hope that helps :thumbup:

    It’s Huntingdon (note spelling) train station if anyone is booking their train ticket.

    45 mins from Kings Cross on the train.

    Thank you all very much for coming, it was a really great day. The demonstration by Filipe was very informative and full of great techniques that he shared with us. We must have had around 25-30 visitors watching in the shop!

    A Big thank you to Esther from Aquaflora for organizing the event, and of course Filipe for his beautiful aquascape.

    Here are some pictures of the completed scape. I will keep this thread updated with it's progress over the coming months.
