    Can you let me know what time Jan Marsh and Elizabeth Heath are speaking.
    I might it difficult to get to this meeting at 6pm and particularly wanted to hear them.

      Their presentation is first on the agenda I’m afraid; I expect they will begin around 6.15pm. I do hope you will be able to attend what promises to be a very interesting event.
