Saab GB (now Saab Parts UK) & a number of their staff will be joining us on Sunday including their MD.
They will also be staffing the door to the building allowing us access to the toilets, hot drinks & food vending machines & free drinking water. We would all like to extend our thanks & appreciation to them for their support.
Please be aware that it is not a large area inside the building & not really designed for a big gang of us in one swoop so we will need to be patient & use the facility only as necessary.
Cranfield University have also been fantastic in helping us. Please be aware that it is a one way system & you cannot get in from the exit side without an argument with the stinger & losing all 4 tyres!
Erik Carlsson will be joining us at the Cranfield Event.
