Hopefully final 2 pledges will be confirmed tomorrow allowing us to finalise things and work out any shortfall for small function on evening of 2nd. We have had kind offers of assistance for a mini buffet or wine, we may have to take you up on that offer yet, watch this space.

We are having to be very flexible on the last aircraft as the SE5 needs grass to land, so working hard on a solution. Final prices will be confirmed tomorrow but I can confirm some times now.
