  1. Dear Barbara That is lovely publicity – many thanks! Could you give me a rough idea how many it will go to? My trouble is our members are not the sort of people who ever go to London. Most of my committee never even look at a website – not that I look at many! Best wishes, Pippa

  2. 61 people including you, Pippa.

    Selected as being likely to consider coming.

    The list includes a few MPs, a few farmers, a few food activists, a few food-related organisations – all serious folk.

    Good wishes – it’s hard to get people out.
