  2. cycling from John O groats to Lands End

  6. **Match Updates** Papal visit.

    Well I work in an office on Regent Road. Already hundreds of excited kids are piling into the old Royal High School along with a load of pipe bands. Helicopters are circling overhead. Some people have already taken their positions by the barriers! About 2 hours to go before he gets here.
