We are flying to Turkey on 7th July, so we changed the IPS appointment to Liverpool as they have the next working day available, compared to Manchester which is in 2 weeks, was considering it which left 3 weeks before the holiday but didn't fancy the risk, and the time at Manchester was at 9am, and Liverpool ones at 11:15, time ive traveled up from Cheshire i could be in Liverpool which is double mileage then getting into Manchester before 9!. and the fuss of sorting the kids out at that time is bad enough for school lol..

My dads sent some renewal passports out a day later and they have followed the above like mine +1 day.

just hoping the kids aint too complicated but sent plenty of letters in and proof!
