I didn't mean to offend. There has been a lot of shuffling about this last week or so with the classroom and it has been difficult to keep up between a lot of planning re the exhibition. Thanks for doing the honourable thing in lieu of my error Robert

I am off work this week and likely to arrive early on Friday. So I am happy to help with setting up and purchasing the snack mountain.
I also expect to arrive at about 1:00PM and I first want to spend a few hours in the museum but I can also help with arranging tables or so.

OK. At this point I'm inclined to call time on further requests. We can use the half table that is free to accommodate the snack mountain.

Re: Acorn World and ABUG meetup, Cambridge 20-22nd September 2019.

Hi
As per the 1st post, we won't get the clasroom til 4.00pm on the Friday
By all means show up earlier if you want to have a look around the museum
Also, the room will need to be cleared of museum kit first.
I'd appreciate help with that with those arriving at around 4 or earlier
Thanks
