Updates for Accommodation and Parking

    1.  Just to be clear, if you have looked for rooms at The Millstone At Mellor (our base) and the website has told you it's full... DON'T BELIEVE IT! :-)
    We still have 6 or 7 rooms set aside specifically for our wedding so you need to call 01254 813333 and press "2" to speak to someone directly. If the person you speak to is unsure about our rooms or rates, ask to speak to Anson or Tim, and they'll sort it out.
    The discounted room rate is £85 (for double/twin with 2 breakfasts). Bear in mind that if you stay here, you'll likely save on taxi fares! ;-)
    2.  If you would like to come to Blackburn Registry Office (within King George's Hall) in the morning, there's lots of room, so please do. It'll be short and sweet (if a little stoic), but it is the "official" marriage bit, I guess!

    If you're coming by car then there is free parking (on Saturdays) in the council car parks. The closest to the Registry is on Fielden Street, BB2 1LL. You can probably get from your car to sitting in the Registry in 5 minutes...

     3.  There's a small car park next to Holy Souls church, but you can also park pretty much anywhere on the road outside.

    4.  Ron & José's neighbours have kindly suggested that cars coming to Ramsgreave Lodge can park on their field across from the house (or if it's too wet, along the private road behind their farm). If you will be wearing high heels, it may be prudent to find a curteous driver to drop you off at the house before they park up! ;-)

    For those who aren't driving, you may well be able to get lifts with some of us, or other guests. Otherwise it should be easy enough for us to order extra taxis on the day.
