Evening All,

I want to gauge interest for a York 3 located in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

I, like Mr Lawton work in a secondary School. We too have very limit resources when it comes to out DT Department.

I am looking into running a day meet up at the school.

The dates are still to be decided. What works for people?

Location wise Mirfield is located on the Transpenine Line. Also is a stop on the Grand Central Line is coming from the South.
Also just off the M62.
The school is a 20min walk from the station or 5min taxi ride.

The town is good for Real Ale Pubs.

Please let me know what you think.

Dan

It will follow Neil's to the letter. Can guarantee the food will be as good but everybody loves a challenge.

Got to be interested Dan but very much depends when and what happens with my missus as she needs both hips replacing and I'd need to be at home.

Joking aside, and just to clarify.

I can't thank people enough for the support that you have all shown for the school over the past two get togethers.
Circumstances change, and I don't feel inclined to support a change of direction that I don't really believe in.

Please be aware that your fundraising has gone directly to helping kids become more independent and creative over the last two years, with money mainly spent on materials we couldn't normally buy, and also on what is now considered "non essential" tooling, and once again I thank you for that. Unfortunately I can't guarantee the same would happen from now on.

Both Ali and I are happy to support Mirfield 1 in any way we can.

Kind regards Peter.

I appreciate your concern Peter.

Unfortunately progress has been very slow while her situation has rapidly deteriorated and she's not even on the list for the first replacement op until after her next consultant appointment on 25th January and even then it could be delayed further still. They normally wait 6 months between ops so the whole of 2016 is bu**ered I think.

The NHS can be excellent in the UK but they seem to have an almost mandatory 6 to 8 weeks between actions of any kind. Sad for someone who spent most of her adult life working there and helping others.

I will be there if I can Dan.

Sorry to hear about Mrs Bob I hope she gets her replacements soon and is up and about without taking the entire year.

Thanks Paul

We knew it was going to happen as she struggled a lot around Oz a year ago but how quickly shes' deteriorated has been a shock.
She's incredibly positive though, I'd be impossible to live with!

Not having been involved in the York sessions, I'm not sure what is envisaged, but I'm interested. However, the first and last weeks in August would be out for me due to bookings at folk festivals.

OK Spanner Time..Doodododo (If not sure think hammer time).

I missed York 1, but loved York 2. I would like a Mirfield 1 and a York 3, however I can understand Neils sentiments. If we had a Mirfield 1 in March/April, those who go on holidays in summer could possibly attend, then if things change we could have a second similar event in August/September at a different location.

I'm not being greedy, I just want my Lemon cake and to eat it all.:up:

I doubt whether having two close together would work and, in any case, Neil wants, understandably, to hand on the baton. However, I would second the idea of having Mirfield 1 in March/April rather than in mid-summer, when many people have planned holidays or have other commitments.

Hi Dan. I would be interested if the date fits. Didn't manage to make York due to other commitments but will certainly try.

I can definitely understand the thinking behind a March/April. Would most likely need to fall into the Easter Half Term slot if it were to happen then.

Spring is hopefully banishing the winter blues. Less impact on holidays. And hopefully all are awash with ideas on what to make with shed time.

Bob, I know two a year is push but we do not have too many Yorkshire suppliers and shows, and I appreciate Neil and Co's efforts, and because I enjoyed it I wanted it again. I did say I was being greedy, it was the lemon cake you know.:drool:
