So ended the morning session with an excellent Hot Buffet Lunch. Rather amazing that after two hours we had no need for a talk or any interventation to keep the chat going.

John's eye showing CHRPE whether left or right not sure but taken at Specsavers. CHRPE is not dangerous and even called Bear Trails by Mick's Optician. Main point of John's talk was to raise awareness especiall when benifical to those with no family history of bowel problems.
