I was chatting to Robb about Blyton the other night, and we were both saying how the way the news at the moment is it's hard to know whether things will be sufficiently 'sorted' for it to go ahead, but fingers crossed it is, and we'll hope to be there. I think you are right about bookings at this stage.

Crazy to think how long this has been going on. But, bigger picture and all that. (and I hope Lizzie is not as busy as earlier in the year and coping OK if she is)

Keeping everything crossed that the smell of old brocade is a vaccine

Really hope this (and other events) can go ahead as planned this year, would be a shame for this to just be sitting at home!

I expect they'll get a bit of attention with how unique they are in the UK! And they'll certainly need to be comfortable as Blyton is a four hour drive from me :)

Are these SA spec Cooper seats?

Very nice indeed!

Those look nice but not quite what I've got in my car, mine have come from even farther away than South Africa :)

They're factory Australian mini seats which I believe would've originally been fitted to Clubman LS models, they were reupholstered some time before I bought them though so definitely not the original colour or fabric.

No Guarantee on blyton at the moment. We are delaying the final decision as long as possible.

We still hope to be able to put on an event, & will confirm as soon as possible.

Sensible holding off - by the lack of numbers signed on for competition events at present it reflects the uncertainty.
Anything with spectators could be even later in the year, interestingly Crystal Palace normally at the end of May hasn't posted anything to indicate if this year it is going to take place, the cost of setting that up relies on a good number of specators.
Blyton is such a super day fingers crossed it will happen - if anyone can do it Mark & Pete can
