    I was hoping to be able to come, but my colleague who was supposed to be on call this weekend has lost his internet connection because a JCB dug through the main fibre cable in the Uxbridge area, and his father-in-law is very ill in hospital, so I’m stepping in – and am therefore imprisoned at home.

    Best wishes to all who attend.
