Hi,

Please place John Garnett and Stephen Garnett on the list; very easy as Dad (John) lives in Stafford.

Many thanks.

Thanks, chaps, for your interest - I've added you to the list. Still lots of room left for anyone else interested

I think I mentioned interest early in the Topic but never said Yay or Nay, so put me down as a Yay if you haven't already.

I am really, really looking forward to meeting up with so many of the people I know as just names and avatars on the Forum.

How many are we up to now?

Last weekend, we went up to Birmingham to visit the venue. I must say, I think it will prove to be an ideal choice - easy access and parking, a good sized and equipped hall, room for display and retail stalls, and capable of taking up to 200 or so people in comfort

The function/catering manager impressed us too with his professionalism - they are happy to accommodate whatever requirements we have.

Hopefully the first of many forum conferences - pleaae let me know if you want to attend

Thanks

May I be lazy and ask (at your convenience) for a recap of time/date/venue address and programme, just to be sure of being on the right track! Thanks.

Ian,

To save Alan the time and trouble of doing that, I have copied the link below, if you go to the Forum Pals section on the home page you will see it pinned at the top.

All the best,

Ian.

OK - I did not see the wood for the trees.... I had gone back to the first post and read the topic through again but not the heading...

Thanks Ian, sorry Alan!

I think this deserves another bump

Booked into the Kensington so I don't have far to stagger back in the pm. Let's hope the change in management has been a success as earlier reviews on Trip Advisor were shocking.

I'm hoping it has picked up too! Can't be worse than a place I stayed in on the IOW this year..............or one in France last year!

Thanks.

Around 85 now, Neil - but still plenty of room. Now we have the festive season behind us (if not the wintry weather) hopefully we'll get a few more people signing up - everyone is welcome, whether you're brand new to the forum or an old-timer. Details all here -
