Daylight Training, Sunday 12 February

By popular demand, there will be a training session from Tilsley Park gates (Tilsley Park itself is closed) at 2 pm on Sunday 12 February. I would suggest a distance session of around 12k, steady. Roads and pavements are pretty ice-free at present (Saturday morning) . If there is snow or freezing rain overnight, can I suggest that Noel (who lives closest) makes a judgement as to whether conditions are safe, and posts an update as a comment below by 1 pm, if in her judgement they are NOT still safe ?
