I know it's hard to believe, but..... lurking almost in the shadow of
Colchester Castle is the East Anglian centre of decadence.... Aqua
Springs.

It may look like a warehouse[1] from the outside, but once you're inside
it's a 'mediterranean themed' hedonists paradise.  Hot spas, Saunas,
Steam room, assorted showers (bucket, needle and ordinary), cool pool,
cold plunge pool, jacuzzis, juice bar, lounging area... the works!

In fact, it has everything that is needed to provide a relaxing
afternoon in preparation for an evening of drinking and socialising and
all the other diverse behaviour patterns that when veiwed in combination
class as an afpmeet.

So, the question is.... does anyone else like this idea?  If so is the
afternoon/early evening of July 11th a suitable date? and which pub
should we go to afterwards?

In case it makes a difference, admission to Aqua Springs is 5.80 per
person, although if there are 10 of us we can claim to be an engagement
party and get in for 3.50 each...

(I'd be happy to go for the sauna and then head back to Ipswich for an
afpmeet at the Fat Cat or pick a pub in Colchester - if people wanted to
bring kids there is a public swimming pool adjacent to Aqua Springs with
things like water slides and jacuzzis so even that's not a problem)

[1] No that isn't where dyslexics go to get laid

Sorry folks but I seem to be loosing track here...

Please could you email me if you are planning to attend this meet -
(that's the one in Aqua Springs sauna complex in Colchester), if there
are ten (or more) of us I will pre-book so we get a discount.

For those of you who missed it first time around - this is what the
original message said.....
