Here it is, with some pictures too. (The email was addressed to Chris Rudd, pro-vice-chancellor at the University of Nottingham)
Yesterday (Sept 15th) was, I think, the best day that we have ever had for PTOV because a 10-year old Italian fan, Edoardo, was brought specially to Nottingham by his mother as his 10th birthday present.
Edoardo attended the demonstration lecture for A-level students, sitting in the front row, and putting up his hand to answer questions!
He brought some biscuits as a present for the team, and cards for Pete, Sam, Debbie and me.
After the lecture he visited my office and went to lab with Pete Licence.

Edoardo has watched all the videos, quoting from them, and even reciting perfectly the limerick about DDT!
His mother said that last year Edoardo chose "Chemistry" as the conversation topic for his English test at school.
It was really a moving experience. It's occasions like this that makes it all worthwhile.
