All this means that we will very likely be well below the attendance numbers that we indicated to the restaurant.
So, sadly, we have decided that, as many people are not likely to be able to make it, even though they have said they would like to come, the best thing is to cancel this event and to re-fix it for a later date. Then, hopefully, there would be fewer conflicting considerations. We have accordingly told the restaurant that we will arrange another date.
For those of you have already paid (and thank you for your prompt payments), we will refund those payments, if you could advise Mary Costelloe of your bank details, please.
We are very grateful to those who have indicated their interest even though they might not have been able to attend for whatever reason. In response to this latent support for such a function we will without doubt make a plan to arrange something in the near future, perhaps in the Spring.
In the meantime, please don’t forget that the SCARA national event is on November 17th in London so if you are able to come, rail unions permitting of course, we will be delighted to see you then.
Thanks again for your support, and our apologies for this change of plans but we will be back with some more ideas soon.
Enjoy the tail end of summer wherever you are.
With very best regards.
Julian and Jim
