Sample letter:

Dear Sir/ Madam,

My name is Emily and I am a secretary of the Middlesex Science Club. Reading your advert in the newspaper caused a heated discussion amongst club’s members hence we wish to visit and learn more about exhibits. Nevertheless, prior to our tour I was hoping you could answer few questions please.

Firstly, we are a group of fifty passionate scientists, and so we are uncertain whether the museum is capable to accommodate such a vast number of visitors. Do you think you could confirm if it essential to book a timeslot and also how far in advance shall we do that?

In addition, we are planning to spend a relaxing afternoon while enjoying our lunch, therefore I would be grateful if you could advise whether there is a snack bar or a picnic space available in a close proximity of the museum.

Last but not least, we wish to take some photos and maybe record a video to post it on our Facebook page. Could you please let me know whether there are any restrictions in terms of the use of electronic devices such as mobiles with flash?

Thank you in advance for all your help. I look forward to receiving your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Emily Kruszewska
