For this Monday we have had a request from the venue:

QuoteWe have a regular user who has requested the Hall on 13th December. This is a date that you would usually be on. They have asked me to make a specialist plea as the date is of great importance to them. I advised that I would do this, but that there would be no pressure and you do, of course, have the right to refuse to give up your slot.

Grahame has suggested that we gracefully let them have the venue, and go axe throwing instead - https://www.angleescape.com/homepageaxe - at the Peterborough One Retail Park on the Eye roundabout.

Thoughts?

I'm willing to let the 13th December slide, as I think this builds up a bit of goodwill with our new hosts.

I'm not sure about the axe-throwing event.

Re axe throwing
Went with the family in Cornwall last month and it was the surprising hit of the holiday. Discovered that a) I will be no use to anyone come the zombie apocalypse, being fairly rubbish at it and b) my sister has some serious pent up rage!

I felt sorry for the axe too. Not it's fault. I even offered to rehome it, but that's wasn't allowed apparently.
