This looks like a perfect way to spend a day with like minded 'telly folk'. I would like to come if I may, pending sorting out a logistical plan that will work!

I've sent you a PM.

Many thanks
Cheers
Nick

I'm still thinking about coming as the other thing I have on the same day is something I can afford to miss.

I've made the journey to Solihull by train before, but didn't need to walk more than a few minutes away from the station. Is the venue within walking distance?

I'd love to come again. It's an event not to be missed for vintage telly enthusiasts.

The nearest railway station is Dorridge. It's possible to walk, but even easier, you could swap mobile phone numbers via PM with Mike or someone else who will be there. Then just ring when you arrive at the station and someone can pick you up in their car. This has been done before.

Yes I was wondering if someone could pick me up, but wasn't sure about asking.

Hi guys, long time, very long time, no speak! I will be trying very hard to make this but my circumstances are very difficult now. My Mum became ill in early 2017 and I have become her full time carer. So my difficulty now is finding stand in care for anything I do, especially difficult at weekends. I missed everything last year but I aim to do at least this and the NVCF this year. So, I REALLY hope to see you guys on May 11.

I was sleep walking and found a copy of the 992T service manual. I will get the Sinclair C5 out of the aircraft hanger and make my way to Warwickshire [providing that is OK Mikey] It should manage it on one charge. Regards, John.

Hi all.

That's brilliant that people can make it. It's going to be a squeeze this year bit I'm sure we'll manage to fit everyone in. I'll make sure that there is good weather so we can migrate outside if necessary.

Thanks all and see you there.

Kind regards.

From Mike.

Hopefully we can come armed with proper Cornish pasties, however it's around the time we hope to be moving into our bungalow so will have to see!

Hope to be able to pop in sometime during the day, assuming my health holds up and things haven't got a bit too crowded! If not another time...

Best regards

I'm still interested in coming along if there's room.

Would it be OK for someone to pick me up from Solihull or Dorridge station on the day as I'll be making my way by train?
