Ben, Tony and I have also booked into the Travelodge on the M6. Maybe you can join us for breakfast in the adjacent Little Chef.

Good idea, I'd planed to eat there before setting off any way - see you there :)

I'd also like to re-affirm my request that people dont PM me about this. Please keep all communication within the thread so things dont get lost (and so I dont have to keep going through loads of PMs :) )

exciting isnt it!

Minus 1 is 27. Sorry, I still think this is a great opportunity, but I have to cancel. I can't combine it with a longer stay, and as a result the costs for just a short trip up & down are just too high.

I'll be investing the saved money in Ilford products, of course! :)

To all of those attending: have a great day. Of course, I hope to see some pictures of this great event afterwards!

Do you think that I should take my flash gun, so that I can take some snaps in the emulsion coating area?

Dave,
don't be silly. Unless your camera has 'red-eye reduction' everyone will have irises the size of saucers.

Leon,
I've only just noticed this thread (believe it or not!). Would you be able to provisionally add me to the list. I say provisionally 'coz I need to try and get the day off, although if I can't I may just throw a sicky! What time (and date) does it kick off. Regards, Niels (Blighty)

art - I take it you must work for Pfizers then? that's pretty much all there is at Sandwich these days, apart from the closed power station? anyway, that's about 10 mins form where I work. Small world.Hi Leon,

Yes. It is a small world. BTW, I need the address so I can arrange car service. Can you or someone give me the exact address of Ilford? I didn't feel like going through 16 pages of thread material!

Thanks, Art.

Please take me off the list Leon. I have to be in hospital on the same day as the trip. I have been waiting for the appointment for six months so I dare not cancel. Whilst you are enjoying yourself I will be having a needle pushed through my side into a nearve root at the base of my spine. Action-reaction, you have the pleasure-I have the pain, I would just like to know how come I always seem to be on the pain side of the equation. Hope you all have a most enjoyable and informative day, regards, Bogey

some people have all the luck! And there will be us looking around a boring old factory .... :p ;)

seriously, sorry to hear you cant make it and I'm sure we all wish you well for what sounds to me like something from a horror movie. good luck

That makes 26 - still space for a few more, but we'll have to close it about a week before the trip so I can let simon know the final name list. - I think by friday 26th is about right.

I've just pm'd Simon Galley to get a final ok and arrangements from him.

art - here is the address from Ilfords website - hopefully it's the same as the factory:- ILFORD Photo, Town Lane, Mobberley, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 7JL, England

Another change to attendees.
Tony Marlow (Brook Hill) is in hospital having suffered a heart attack last week. Whilst now stable, he is due to be transferred to a specialist unit next week for further tests.
He doubts that he will be fit enough to attend, I’ve told him that I think it’s a particularly poor excuse for dropping out, but there seems little prospect of changing his wife’s mind on the matter.

If anyone can make use of it, Tony has a hotel room booked local to Ilford’s factory for the night of the first of June. If it is of interest, please PM me.
