02 Mar 2018CS&PF Dinner travel advice

A message from Michelle Toptalo to all CS&PF dinner guests concerned about travel conditions this weekend

Good morning

I've been getting a few enquiries about the dinner and the weather.

Currently the forecast in the South-East is for things to improve. Roads in the Dover area are all clear but please allow extra time for your journey as mid Kent has had a lot more snow than we have here.

If you are not able to attend the dinner due to the weather or any other reason I can not offer you a refund at this stage unless I can resell the ticket. With this in mind if you do wish to cancel please do give me as much notice as possible and I'll do my best.

Thank you
