    I hope there are more of the fasting fours in the strip pot.

    Best guess from the not high performing meter and strip combo is 5.3 today. @JanetMcDowell hope grand daughter soon recovers but she was clearly in good hands. @Diawara what counts as mid Suffolk then. I have sons in Mildenhall and Lakenheath and it obviously borders Cambridgeshire?
