New direction questionnaire from a stayed case in March 2020!!

Hello all, long time no post. 
I hope you are all well and able to help. I have received a directions questionnaire from Luton small claims court dated 22nd September, for a case I assumed I won 16 months ago! 
Here is the link to the thread with the judgement. 
https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/6084523/premier-park-county-court-claim-northampton/p6
The judgement clearly stated that claimant had 7 days to change their claim. Otherwise it was finished. Or am I wrong? 
I need some advice on how to proceed if possible as I thought this was done and dusted. Hopefully it's a clerical error by the court. 
Please help
Kind regards

    Have you received a copy of "the amended Particulars of Claim"?

    Thank you for your help I will send the DQ back with that statement attached. I thought it was a bit of a fast one they were pulling. Hopefully the judge sees it the same.
    Thank you again

    Hello all, 

    I have filled in the DQ and written this covering letter. I will drop in person to the court tomorrow. Is this sufficient? 

    The person addressed on the letter is not a judge, but a civil servant maybe I have made the letter out to him. 

    Thanks in advance


    Dear Mr C Kovary,


    Firstly I apologise for the lateness of this reply, but I was completely unaware of this becoming active again. 

    I have not been served the amended particulars of Claim, so I was entitled to think the claim was dead, given that under CPRs, there are only four months to serve a claim.

    The claimant has warehoused this case for 18 months, and is in breach of the previous order (Photocopy attached). I believe this is far too late to furnish the court with an amendment now. In view of this and the fact they have failed to send a copy of amended particulars of claim to the myself the defendant, I invite the court to strike this dead claim out. 


    I look forward to hearing from you regarding this.


    Kind regards,


    Christopher Littlejohn

    Hello all, 

    Sorry to be bothering you all again, because that does indeed mean I have received a hearing date. Sad news as I thought this had gone a long time ago.
    I am unsure of a few things now. Do I have to re-send the witness statements and defense?
    The case ref. is still the same as the original. And if I do re-send docs when is this done by?

    I will post pics of the letter with any sensitive info blanked out. 

    Kind Regards
