Nearest Motorway Junction is M42 J9, then follow A4097 Kingsbury Road towards Kingsbury, until you reach an island, turn right onto Coton Road, follow this road into Whitacre and look for the Swan Inn. turn right here onto Birmingham Road. Follow this road out of the village and the collage will be on the left. The entrance to the drive is blockpaved and it looks more like a farm. There will be signs up if all goes to plan!

Kindof signed up. I don't remember naming one of my robots THAT but good luck to john announcing it.

It should be 'Don't Hug Me I'm Scared'. And 'Un-named Grabber' has no name yet and probably won't for a while.

I`ve spoken to the venue owner today, please make sure any plug in devices such as chargers and soldering irons etc are safe to use, no dodgy plugs or anything. To comply with the H&S risk assessments.
Thanks.

If lots of people turn up we will be using the workshop instead of the classroom and although it has heating it isn't as good so you might want to allow for that :0

I`ve got seven 6x3 tables booked but I can add more if needed when I pick them up, it`s looking good folks!
