Well that didn’t take long. TUGs part two.

Indeed that didn’t take long at all. A fine upstanding GMWRAG member has emailed us almost immediately after our first TUG post and confirmed that the Tribunal User Group covering Blackburn, Bury, Rochdale, Bolton and Burnley will be held on Monday the 14th of March 2016 at 10:00am at Blackburn HMCTS, 2nd Floor, Soho Foundry, Cicely Lane, Blackburn, BB1 1HQ.

As stated previously, in view of recent announcements on court closures and plans for wholesale reform of tribunals GMWRAG is (sort of) pleased to announce that we have received an invitation.Oh, er, actually we haven’t… but you know what we mean. One of our members has.

Once again please note that you are expected to submit questions in advance. We don’t have a copy of the relevant form but you could always improvise and use the one we posted up and label it clearly as for this meeting.

Incidentally, we have no idea if that is actually Soho Foundry but the big G search says it is so it must be true.
