At 6:50am this morning, Iain was intervewed on BBC Southern Counties Radio by Fred Marden. Iain was given a great opportunity to speak about his, Julie's and Fraser's experience at CHASE. We don't know if it'll be on listen again - but you might want to check it out just in case!

Iain and Jules...

Up at 430-5am, restless night sleep, things are all packed ready to go, Iain is on BBC Southern Counties Radio at 650am. Then we will be waiting for everyone to turn up so that we can cycle down to CHASE to meet the mayor and Roger Black for photos!

After that, its the long drive to Lands End!
