Actually I have just realised I know someone who wants to run so if you still have the place I will find out how to do the transfer and then you can let them know how to refund you. It's email@example.com
Thanks - I have had a couple of responses (which is great) I am pursuing the first. There seems to be a quite a few folk who got caught out this year so hopefully you will find someone willing to take up your place. I really hope my first attempt at transfer comes off otherwise I'll be back here.
