Brilliant news, Mark. I'm so glad that they've come good for you, (and the rest of us, of course). Well played sir 👏

Is there an Ice Cream Parlour, how close is the nearest Costa (for Envelope) and Starbucks (for me and you)?
I can now answer this and say that the nearest Costa for @#steve is 1.5 miles away from the hotel.
Is there a Zip Wire?
Not that I've been able to find, unless there is one lurking in the Fire Service College.

However, I'm reasonably confident we could have a Zip Wire where I'm already planning for 2024.
Are we there yet?
Oh dear... it's going to be a long "journey" isn't it? Only another 238 days to go :D

Do we need a Transport Manager for this meeting and if we do, will he be able too sorce Cheap Fuel for us.
I don't think we'll need the services of a transport manager on this occasion - I'm working on a different solution :D

...but hopefully petrol/diesel may have continued to fall in price by the time April comes around.🤞

Even if 'Tibbles' were brim full of 99 Octane 5% ethanol before he/she/it leaves our house (it will be so...), he/she/it will be gasping for more by the time we get near the Cotswolds :D
I've got you down as about 225 miles to the Fire Service College, Simon

Just a quick heads-up - on the back of the Jaguar Breakfast Club's visit to JLR Classic Works near Coventry on Saturday 1st October and in order to extend the day and increase the fun:miles ratio even higher than usual...

I've put together a bonus event for the afternoon at the relatively nearby Silverstone Museum.

If you're interested in joining us for the full day, or just the afternoon... check out the details here...
