This is fantastic. We can’t join you all day due to work but will join in the afternoon. Huge thanks. No.46.

Can you take in a view of Money Hill the Bronze Age tumuli on Chapel Hill when you go between Harston and Haslingfield Quarry please.

This sounds good, but only to depress us further with the enormity of what will be lost. This is not a day trip for the locals but should be a tour for those whose decisions will impact our beautiful countryside. Lets get some engineers and ceo’s bums on bikes, then perhaps they would have a ground level view of the impact their decisions will make.
I trust you have extended the invitation to EWR and Mr Blancheflower?

Nicole, That’s a very good point. EWR Co. employees, if you are reading this, you would be very welcome to join us and receive a friendly reception.

I am afraid that we are committed to visiting our son in Brighton that day and cannot join you.
I hope that you can manage press and TV coverage.
