The wording posted by Gemma earlier today
Following a site visit today, the Park is water logged worse it has been for over 12 years
Sadly POL 24 is cancelled. We have tried to source a space on the redevelopment sadly there is water there as well: POL team is sad for this to happen this year. The Parks also stated they had to cancel an event in Wugust of last year due to the weather. Please accept our apologies.
Those that are travelling from abroad and still coming please pm me.
Not an easy decision and one that would not be called if not necessary
Here to working towards heritage week.

Yes just seen that, not really surprising it must have been close last year, that slope on the way out was getting dicy!

The MG Car Club have quickly organised a 'replacement' event at the Great British Car Journey. They're calling it Longships & Octagons Day 1 - https://www.facebook.com/events/374879102185518 - as it's the day before their planned L&O event

Ticket link direct with Great British Car Journey – Tickets are per adult and include Museum / Tours and all facilities access - https://online1.venpos.net/ConsumerSite ... V6NYlqfyfE

First come first served !

NB: The club has not yet confirmed that this will be a Club Event. More info shortly....

As above, the “unofficial” replacement POL event is at the Great British Car Journey on Saturday 13th. The club unfortunately won’t have an official presence at this event, but we’d encourage any members who are able to attend to do so :clapping
