Presentation Evening & Supper – This Saturday 8th Feb

The Presentation evening is this weekend (Sat 8th Feb) with reception drinks from 6.00pm and presentations starting 6.30pm.

There is also a very informal supper after the presentations which will be served at approximately 7.30pm. Food choice will be Chicken Chasseur or Beef Bourguignon followed by dessert.

At the moment we have 36 people booked for the food so there are still places available if you would like to come along. We need to know by Thursday evening if you would like to attend so that we can buy in and prepare the correct amount of food.

If you would like to book a place please email socialsec with the number of tickets required your choice of chicken or beef.

Tickets can be paid for on the night.
