Needless to say – everything. Carlos wants us in particular to study carefully our own parts to clear away any accuracies that are still lingering there.

On Tuesday, 26 November a few of us will be at the Chapel to receive additional risers. Fitting the risers to the odd space we have at the Chapel is a challenge. No amount of planning will tell us exactly how it will work. So please be patient and accept graciously if we ask you to move from your ‘favourite’ space to accommodate everybody so we all see can be seen.
Thanks, again, Richard for the enormous amount of work you are doing on this matter. Thanks too to the ‘Risers Team’.
Valerie’s daughter recital – reminder:
Valerie’s daughter is being examined at the Con on Tuesday, 26 November at 14.20. Valerie is accompanying her. It would be nice for us to be there to support them.
Julie’s book launch:
If you have registered to go to this event on Monday, 25 November, please be mindful that parking is difficult and plan accordingly.
