  • I have felt that the flow of previous Annual Luncheons has been somewhat disturbed by the way we choose our two courses. Some people chose starters and main and some chose main and dessert and others chose to have all three. This year therefore you will be able to choose to have two courses without dessert or all three courses. Tea or coffee will be included but drinks will be ordered and paid for separately. There will be a small service charge included in the price. I will endeavour to keep the costs down as much as possible – the hotel tell me they will be able to accommodate us at similar prices to last year. The hotel is at present preparing new menus and I will announce these and let you know the costs in the July newsletter.
  • I would be grateful however if you would let me know as soon as possible if you are likely to attend.
