Hi BJS,

Thanks for keeping us updated!

I was just wondering, are the boys on Twitter?

I'm sure that the folks following @ParkinsonsUK would like to get updates as well.

Thanks Enzinda the boys are not on twiter but my daughter is an she will tweet their progress.

Celebrity tweets received so far include Graham Norton - they have retweeted the link so will keep the tweeters happy !

Tonight the boys arrive in Dorston Holland, tonight they hope to catch the football they missed it last night.
