    It has been an extremely busy first day for the Administration Team at the Felsted Model United Nations. But despite the severe weather conditions it has been a successful day.  

    Everyone is very tired, but we will be geared up for tomorrow!

    We have had to make some quick decisions today, but have managed to keep things going through some scheduling changes and fortunately our chairs and admin teams have thrived on having to make some quick decisions....

  • MUN TRAVEL UPDATE

    date posted: Sunday 5 Feb 2012

    The A120 is absolutely fine (though only one lane open in each direction). The main issue is just getting to Felsted from the main road. I have come in myself from the Braintree direction and already some tyre tracks are developing, so hopefully things will gradually improve. However, the flashpoint on that road is the narrow left turn bridge which needs to be tackled with caution.

    The road from the Dunmow end may well be better; an update on that direction will be posted here as soon as possible.

    The message remains as yesterday: clearly it is totally your decision  whether or not to travel, but come if you feel you can, come late if you can't come on time and come tomorrow if you cannot come today!

    Regards

    Tom Vignoles

  • WEATHER STATEMENT

    date posted: Saturday 4 Feb 2012

    Some of you may have spotted that the weather forecast overnight includes some snow, which may cause a few of you some travel difficulties in the morning. This is just to reassure you that the conference will still be going ahead, regardless of whether snow may cause a few people to be late. If you have any difficulties, you should obviously contact your teacher / driver in the first instance, who will update us if there are any problems.

     

    If there is snow overnight, please make sure you wear appropriate clothing, including sensible footwear!

     

    Regards,
