“……… Just to let you know that, after consultation with the GB2RS Coordinator, we’ve arranged that my Sunday evening GB2RS will move time from 1830hrs to 1930hrs. This change is effective from next Sunday. Hopefully this will mean people who are busy in the afternoon, or who would normally have their dinner around 6.30pm, etc etc, will find it easier to tune in ……………..”
