    Hi from South Leicester

    Morning all, been lurking for a while so thought I'd drop in and say hi. Live in stoney stanton and spend a good deal of time out with the dogs in the fields. Have young son who loves the adventure side of things so I'll hope to be visiting often and look forward to sharing advice. Chris (and Tom)
