As an experiment, MMC are opening for a limited number of Saturday mornings for factory tours.
The first, on October 27th, does not appear to have been posted on the MMC website yet, so with permission from the Tour Co-Ordinator I said I would put a post up on TM (trust that doesn't fall foul of any TM rules). As of this morning, we only have 3 takers for tours on that date - I hope that number will increase!

Further dates are November 24th and January 26th.

Cheers,
Graham

Graham you don't mention if the blokes with hammers will be in building things ? Given it would be a little less interesting without being able to see the handcrafting in action can you guide us ?

Yes, there will be assembly in progress, though likely fewer employees than a normal weekday.

A Saturday date would make a good TM trip out but I'm not sure when I can make it just now!

Same for me, it's a little short notice.

Seems to have been a successful day.
Oversubscribed on tours - even had a family of 5 walk in on the offchance they could follow a tour smile
Good to catch up with PeterG again.
I am now booked to cover the 10:00 tour on the last Saturday in November. Places are already filling up smile

I wish it was a bit closer, but 2.5 hours each way is a bit offputting!

Especially in winter...........

I'm glad it went well Graham smile

3Hrs each way is a bit extravagant for a sausage roll and tea grin2

Check the MMC website for Saturday dates in 2019.
Last Saturday this month (January 2019) is pretty much sold out I believe.

You will very likely need to pre-book Dave.
This Saturday, we have 170 persons booked and I believe all tours may well be full.
I'm not available on 11 May, but am on the other two days you mention. smile

It would be good to get the splinter group together. Kev's quiet.
Maybe his lips and hands are frozen.

Ok defrosted now !!!

There was a delay due to my visit to Holland in March in the Almond Tart and not sure if I would be back in time.

I have booked for the 9.30 Tour on March 30th.

Hope Graham or Ian is taking the Tour !!!!

The Splinter Group Lives !!!!!
