    I hope you've received the orientation details for parents by now. It has various activities for the parents but there is a talk about student finance by Martin Lewis (who went to LSE) where we are also invited.

    I thought perhaps if anyone is intending to go to the Martin Lewis lecture and then find themself at a loose end (waiting for parents who are going to the other activities later on) then we could meet up. It's on 27 Sept.

    Thanks.

    I got that Parents pack a couple of days ago. I'll be working on the 27th so I don't think I'll be able to make it but I think my parents are planning on going on the events planned for them.

    The parents have been invited to a cocktail reception in St John's Wood the night before and then on 27 there will be a welcome reception (in an LSE building) following by tours, talks etc. There is also a debate in the afternoon with a panel from LSE and (if I can remember because I don't have the paper with me) a drinks reception the round it off.

    If you are overseas, then it will take longer for the details to arrive. It might also be more difficult if your parents aren't be living here.
    It all seems like a good idea - even if it is just to say "your kids will be fine" then that is bound to be comforting for them!

    Anyhow, my posting was so that if anyone is going into town on that day (to attend the Martin Lewis lecture - around mid-day) then perhaps a TSR meet up could be arranged in the afternoon?

    So when is this meet up going to be? Personally I think the Pub Quiz is the best time to meet up.

    Yes, I'm all for the pub quiz. When is that?

    I though the parents' day might be a good idea in case some of us were there anyway, hanging around waiting.....Oh yes, I thought could also go to the zoo and then......(joking, of course!!!!!)

    I'm not sure if my parents have looked at the parents pack yet...I doubt they'll go if it's on a weekday though.

    Ah, I know why. The link I originally posted above was a http link. The site can only be accessed through secure means, i.e. https. I've fixed my link now.
