    Just seen in the news that the poppies at the tower of London are staying until end of the month, so if people are interested can put it back into the plan. I was gutted when I thought I might miss the opportunity to see them

    I have been having a think about where to meet next Saturday.

    Would people prefer to meet at Victoria Station (undercover but large place to spot people you may not know) or outside the HQ (outside but possible more obvious who we are)

    Sorry I'm not going to make it due to work. You may be better meeting at victora as I went up this week and there is a lot of building work up by chance and also the shop closed yesterday as they are moving again.

    I've found a map of the station here. http://www.networkrail.co.uk/VictoriaStationMap.pdf

    Choosing a spot on there sounds like a good choice to me. Those who have been to things with me know that I wear a navy scout hat with my uniform, so I should be easy to spot.

    Sorry I can't now. I'm going to a Brownie sleepover at Chelmsford museum as one of the adults has had to drop out.

    Food thought. Are we bringing our own packed lunch, or is the plan to stop and buy something?

    If I get organised and can face a supermarket after reading about the chaso in some stores i will get some lunch to bring with me, but im sure we will be going past enough places to get food if we wished to.

    I was thinking if people arent rushing off we could find somewhere to eat together for dinner.

    I have sent everyone who said they would like to join us for the trails a message with my mobile number. Please let me know if you have not received a message or at last minute would like to join us for any part of the day (even if just to say hi if your in the area).

    Really looking to seeing many of you tomorrow. :D

    I'm not going to make it for the day as I have to be somewhere until about 5/5.30, but if you're still about after that & planning to have dinner somewhere in London I might join you.
