June Miscellany: Andrey Leaves Trigenix, Phil has a sleep and Scenes from Diss - 4th, 5th June 2004

Andrey leaves Trigenix and trades Cambridge for Oxford, so a deputation wanders down to the Green Dragon pub on the banks of the Cam to see him off. Later that night, after a few hours in the pub, Nosher and Phil go round Marc and Sue's to watch DVDs till the small hours. The next day, Nosher wanders into Diss to see once more a re-enactment of some stuff from "The Skelton Years" (1460 - 1529, at one point during which John Skelton - former tutor to Henry VIII was a rector of Diss).
