I suggest you ring Appeals tomorrow to discuss.

Factors to consider are how important you feel this evidence is for your case, whether they think appeals are likely to go ahead on Wednesday, how easy it would be to re-arrange.

Hi Phil

You may also find that "shut" doesn't necessarily mean locked and barred. Quite a few schools are actually open for local staff who can get in safely and want to do classroom preparation - it's just that they can't bring the children in as well when conditions and staffing levels are so unpredictable. Many other schools will be maintaining a small skeleton staff to deal with such things as deliveries and essential admin.

Try calling the school at around 9am once the rush of calls has died down - you may well find that there are staff there, and hopefully they will be sympathetic to your problem.

Hi Phil

It may be worth checking that your hearing is still on. Yesterday Mummog's was cancelled because of the snow.

Hi Phil

Give Appeals a ring and ask for a view on the situation. I am quite sure that you will not be alone in having this problem and you will get sympathetic advice.

Depending on what they say, you can either decide to go ahead and simply explain that you could not get hold of the books, or request that your appeal be adjourned. It seems from Mummog's case that the adjourned hearing would probably be around 13th - 16th Feb, but Appeals will almost certainly be able to tell you that on the phone.

It all depends on how central the books are to your case. If you have very strong evidence otherwise, then perhaps they aren't essential.

You could also try first thing in the morning - most schools are open from 08:00 - if they are open!
