You're so quick to read sarcasm into my emails. I was working this out - I'm
doing around 100 miles walking in 7 days in Morocco (plus 2 days touristing)
so, at that pace, it would take me 16 days to walk from EC1 to get my pies
but I suspect they would be cold by the time I brought them back to the next
London PM meeting.

I did actually send Holland's an email asking for further details - but they
haven't replied (yet).

I also found this:
s_pie_tasting_panel which unfortunately says "The new MD is looking to
select two people from the Manchester area to join a 12-person panel from
across the Lancashire region to help ensure products are of the highest
quality" which would make it a choice between moving to Manchester or
leaving London PMers.

I'll have to think about that for a bit...
