It is important that a number of you go the Media Loan Shop at Ellen Terry and borrow the equipment on your cards. All equipment has been booked already together with a small projector to view our footage while we are away.
Diana has kindly offered to store all of the equipment in her house around the corner for the night before taking it to Ellen Terry for leaving early the next morning. She will need help with this both on Wednesday and early Thursday morning.
I am fetching the mini bus on Wednesday but hope to be back to be at the Loan shop at 3pm.
