Sounds Great. It's just a shame we can't get. Can you tell me if you can still get information from it please, or is it only from there on the day?

Hi Mailea, probably information is only there on the day; we are not taking anything new, just spreading the word about joining GROW. Is there any specific information you are looking for?

I will put this in my diary and intend to come along
