Hey guys!

For those of you that are interested there is another RAL trip being organised for the 27th Sept. Who's going? 

I'm going to provisionally ask for 15 places for us with the view that this can be easily downsized if needed and should be enough to begin with. If there is more interest than spaces I'll try to increase the number of spots but if unable to it'll be first come: first served.

Anyway reply to this to grab a spot and with which tour you'd like to go on; personally I'm inclined to go for 2 or 3

Cheers,

I've added a page[1] for this. If you can please add yourself there as well (it just makes life that much easier and I'm lazy). I'll also point out that I can't make this one as I'll be being grilled for my second year PhD talk that day (the joy!)

Right, this is now all confirmed so the people who replied are all booked in for tour 1. 

You'll need to organise amongst yourselves getting there etc. as a warning it's about 40 min on the train to Didcot Parkway and then a further 20 min on the bus to RAL (get bus 32 or X32 to Harwell Campus).

It's on the Tuesday 27th September from 10am till 3pm

You'll need a packed lunch or similar but there is a Spar at Didcot station if all else fails. There is also a restaurant/canteen thing at RAL but I don't know what access to that will be liklee

Anyway have fun!
