Good to hear Josh :)

Not everyone reads the fine detail. There have been at least two occasions that I am aware of where people have ticked the RSVP box on this website and turned up at the event without going through the correct booking channels. Removing the RSVP here forces them to look for the correct method. Simply done by going to Edit and ticking the box.

Seeing as the address is already displayed in the listing there is more of a possibility of people just turning up on the day also. But, ultimately up to you.

I'll remove the other listings I made.

Hello Lissa, I had to change the time for the bee presentation and didnt want you to have to edit the event for me everytime. I do put my events on my website, facebook and BLF in that order. Only people that have prepaid and get a confirmation from me are booked in. Thanks Josh

Hi Josh - already had this advertised for you, plus the other one you are running same day.

You might want to get rid of the RSVP (under Edit) or people sometimes think they have booked in here on the site.

Important note about adding photos:

Always add photos using the "From my computer" option, even if you are on a mobile phone or other device.
