Dear Mark,

Hello - thank you for organising this trip. I have withdrawn simply due to the M6 closure this weekend. I live near the motorway and A6 alternative and there’s signs everywhere warning about very long delays. Rather than get caught out, I will exercise discretion.

I hope you have a good day out and I look forward to seeing you soon.

 Thank you,


Mark H.
