R44 SFH this weekend

Does anyone know of a midlands based R44 available for SFH this weekend. I have 6hrs to do and my usual machine is down for maintenance.

Ive tried all the obvious places to no avail.

HELP!

Could also try Hummingbird at Doncaster. Their R44 G-FCUM has just come out of rebuild and is insured for SFH.

Sadly not! Spent 8hrs in the car instead, then cried into my pint overlooking the hotels unused helipad in the glorious sunshine!

Still had a lovely weekend away without the kids though!

Thanks for all the replies chaps.
