As a relatively new sufferer of CH, I'm absolutely delighted that this meeting is happening so close to me! I can't wait to meet those of you who are attending.....most people just don't understand what we have to go through and it'll be great to spend time with people who just 'get it'.

PF wishes to all.

New to this forum but been a CH sufferer for many many years.  Just got my tickets for the conference and really looking forward to it.  Feel like I've just booked a holiday!

Oh that's great, Gillian! You will love mingling with others who totally understand your pain and how life is, coping with it. You won't be disappointed. You'll love hearing the top experts speaking and it will give you confidence to know we have such brilliant people on our side.

I'll be there on the day, please make yourself known to me!

Is there a sell-out risk for tickets?  Both I and my partner are now going to try and come and make a weekend of it, but we're waiting to see if we can offload the kids on her mum!

Hi Dorothy,

Looking good for that weekend.  It's going to be a long drive because we're going to have to swing by the Cambridgeshire fens on the way there and the way back, but I love an adventure.  I'll go online and book some tickets.

Will I need an extra coat? Smile

That's great Joe! It's bound to be a wee bit chilly but not arctic conditions in March if that helps. I look forward to meeting new faces and old friends.
