    Sains had the same offer at 39 with a top up required Alcatel Kit kat with 4.4 May not be exact but may help with a search

    This was a full, no more room in the No 1 lounge at Gatwick South on Friday.
    The people who couldnt get access would put the trouts to shame. I have never seen anything like it. From a guy that managed to get a very senior person at Priority Pass on the phone to talk to the lounge receptionist (she wouldnt take the call) to someone offering to buy other peoples timed entry passes. Could only describe them as dressed up rabble.

    It was much calmer inside and about half empty.

    We are very lucky having Sains, asda and Morries all with a 10 min drive

    Tesco is about 20 mins away but just minutes from DS so always incorporate a visit to T's when we are down

    No worries mrs Mac. I'm going to hold out for a week. See if a good deal comes up.

    Meanwhile...beans. Off to morries now, do I need to buy a particular number of tins each time? Or just up to 20 tins?

    Thanks all

    This is a good link, not all 11 year olds are fans of museums so choose something with an interesting exhibition
