Dear Member

Reunion Day  -  Saturday  12 October 2013

 

Those of you with e-mail addresses will have recently received a reminder of the date of Reunion Day from Ted Hazelden, our Membership Secretary.  

 

I have come out of my hidey hole to send out invitations to this popular annual event!   I am pleased to say that Reigate Manor Hotel has not increased the price and your Reunion Day will again cost £24.00 per head.

 

The arrangements are very similar to previous occasions.   Coffee/tea and biscuits will be served from 10.45 a.m. before the AGM at 11 15 a.m.   This will be followed by Lunch.   Once again, you do not have to pre-book your exact meal but the choices you will be offered on the day are shown below.   

 

Reigate Manor Hotel offers a limited choice of buffet-style two-course meal, i.e. no starter.  

A choice of carvery-style roast with all the appropriate trimmings

(this year roast turkey or roast beef)

with roast and new potatoes and a selection of hot vegetables

or

Cold meats/cold fish with a variety of plain and fancy salads, with new potatoes.

 

This will be followed by a selection of cold desserts or cheese

Then coffee (or tea) and chocolate mints to complete the meal.

 

The Hotel needs an idea of numbers in good time so could you please let me know by Tuesday, 17 September 2013 latest if you would like to join us.   Cheques will be banked in early October.

  

Reigate Manor is conveniently situated about a mile from M25 Junction 8, on Reigate Hill.   There is adequate car parking.   The entrance is up about six steps or there is a sloped path to the left of the steps.   Once inside, everything is on the level.   As usual, you are most welcome to bring guests.   Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon!   Numbers will be limited.   A reply form is attached and final details will be confirmed to you by the last weekend in September.

 

We all hope very much that there will be a good response.  

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Sheila.
