    I attended one of the tours about 5 years ago...so much to see and would love to have the opportunity to revisit.

    But I appreciate that first-timers should have the chance to enjoy a similar day, so I will follow the rules and not try to book again this time ! :smile:

    Hi Simon,
    Very nice of you to organize this. I won't be able to attend this year due to distances, but I'm hoping to spend my vacation to GB next year in the last weeks of August 2014.
    So if you could set up the next tour in that period, please let me know in advance, so I have time to lure my family to this part of your lovely country on the right day and time ...

    :D tempting :D

    And when I've returned home, I'll say I meant PHOTO paper ...
    I checked Easyjet and they even fly to Manchester from Amsterdam. Would be about € 100 for the return flight.

    I've requested a place on the visit - although I have been once before.

    For those who can possibly manage to get themselves there - do go - its fascinating.

    During the visit you will quickly understand why Ilford have such a (deserved) reputation for quality and all their people are really friendly too.

    The group I was with all asked loads of questions - and they were always fully answered - even if we didn't always fully understand :whistling:

    Somehow I'm thinking $79.28 is not going to get me to Mobberley from here...

    Anyone want to buy a kidney? :wink:

    Starts at 10:00 and is expected to finish a 16:00 with a break for lunch around midday - Best to arrive early to allow time to negotiate security.

    I received a email with all those details from Michelle Parr from Ilford only a couple of days ago. You might want to check with Michelle that you are on the list. Would be a shame to turn up and not be allowed in as your name isn't on the list.

    Thanks. I haven't asked to go on the tour yet. I was just checking the times etc to see if I needed a full day off work. I'll check schedule and see if there are any places left.

    A fantastic day. What superb staff Harman have, we all felt part of the family and will be spreading the good word I'm sure.
    Thanks to all please Simon. I may try and slip in on Monday's tour :smile: but I fear Michelle has my number in her book.:whistling:

    Just about woken up after a long drive home.. It was indeed an enjoyable and interesting day.

    Thanks is everyone at Harman for organising the tour and answering a continuous stream of questions.

    A wonderful day out. We were made to feel most welcome from the very start to the very end. The Harman folk were all friendly, informative, helpful and imbued with genuine enthusiasm for their work. Having used ILFORD products for over fifty years it became clear why I have never, ever experienced a fault in any of them. This fantastic workforce just won't allow anything below standard to get by them! Long may ILFORD continue to develop and succeed in its markets. By the evidence we saw on the day everyone at ILFORD deserves nothing less. An especially big thank you is due to Michelle for arranging the day for us and another big thank you to those who let her do it. Well done all round!
