If it helps other people I can now answer some of my own original question.
In the last 10 years CRGS has granted no appeals.
KEGS has granted 4 in the last 5 years
WHSB has granted 15 in last 7 years.
We appealed to KEGS and lost and CRGS and won!!!!
I will do full report on Appeals section using format set up by etienne but if anyone in future, because I suspect this year's appeals are now all over, wants more information about what we did. just sent a PM.
The message I would like to send out is, do not be put off by fact that appeals are never won, someone can break the duck and it may be you!!! We asked ourselves after we lost the KEGS appeal whether it was worth putting ourselves through the trauma again when the odds were so heavily stacked against us and decided our DS was worth it and gave it our best shot. I am so glad we did.
