I have been pointed in the direction of your post here as no one had replied, my thanks to Di Edwards :)

The events page shows the details. I understand from Geoff that the the hotel and dinner at the Lea Marston are fully booked.

Hope to see you at the NMA on the Sunday

All the best

Di,
Sometimes things do slip through the net, so it's always good that folk like you give us a quick nudge and point things out to us.
Doesn't do any harm.
Thanks,

Nick

Hey Stephane

Of course and it would be good to see you both again. I am not booked into the Lea Marston but staying in a guest house nearby. I will however be in the bar at the Lea Marston on the Saturday night. As a Scotsman visiting England I feel that would be the most appropriate place to be !

See you both there.

Pete

Calling all Scots/Northeners!

If you've made the journey down to Alrewas before by train - which station do you get off at, how do you get to the place ... and back again? Getting the train's no problem but what's the best station to aim for?

If I have praised my comrades too highly I make no apology, for they were beyond all praise.

And that's from a Welshman ! So far on this message alone we have contributions from English, Scottish, Welsh, and French members. What a diverse group we are. Mind you will Geoff be English or Aussie after he leaves Blighty !

English through and through Cobber!!! )

For those not booked for dinner at the Lea Marston on Saturday evening please do not be shy! Once the meal has finished please join us for a catch up and dance (!) in the main hall.

Look forward to seeing you all in June.

Best wishes

Geoff
