Visit by Prof. Steve Furber

Many of you may have been wondering if the visit by Prof Steve Furber will go ahead, following the recent spate of bad weather. Well, we have been in touch with him today, and he is still fully intending to come on Wednesday evening. The only thing that would stop him would be if the police and motoring organisations were to put out strong advice not to travel, and having checked the Met Office web site for the Manchester and West Yorkshire forecasts, this seems very unlikely.

Looking forward to Wednesday evening!
