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...........
