is there any chance you can set this up in the LDC shop and collect the money as people book?

That's fine, we can do this. John has organised privileged parking for us at the NMA so collecting the charge beforehand wouldn't be an issue.

I'll add a link for people to book, watch this space.

I have been talking to the NMA today and they have asked if we would like to pre-pay for parking. So pre booking would be beneficial.

They have also said nearer the date we can pre-book the land train and catering if needed.

Warning.......... the NMA has a very nice shop, so bringing the other half might work out expensive!

Going to be a cracking event this.

That's a shame Colin.

I have been in discussion with the NMA today, we have a coned off section of the main car park.  The MG Enthusiasts club will also be in attendance and parked near us.... a bit more interest for the day perhaps?

Weather forecast is set to warm up next week, so hopefully dry.

There is a very nice restaurant at the NMA for those wanting a snack, lunch or a hot meal, as well as coffee/cake bar.

For anyone who has lost a loved one/friend/family in conflict, you can find there memorial and/or engraving at the NMA via a touch display in the main building. I know my way fairly well round the grounds if anyone has a particular memorial they would like to visit.
