I am very pleased, and much relieved, to report that following today's visit from HMRI they were content that the physical work from Idridgehay to Duffield had been completed to a very high standard and all the supporting paperwork was in order. The appropriate documentation will now be issued in time for the Royal Opening on Wednesday 6th April.
As you can imagine there has been an inordinate amount of back ground work to prepare for today's successful outcome by so many people. I was very ably supported today by Mike Evans, Graham Walker, Mick Thomas and Bob Swepstone and their input was invaluable.
There were other tasks undertaken today including housekeeping in the Booking Hall, further work on the BSK and Lewis completed the sparkling of D8001.
Please raise you glass to another most successful and rewarding day.
PS I understand the Sultan has changed his mind!
