Thanks to all contributers. There were not as many contributers as usual this year (over 3 sites) so t would seem that the figures are now just about right.
Once again many thanks to all that contributed and anything further that comes in I will make amendments for next year.

Thanks for that Peebee
Which pretty much confirms our figures in the original post are fairly accurate, a little more or less depending on your lifestyle.
