NB: BOOKING HAS CLOSED AND THIS IS A FULL EVENT.

The venue for the Club Annual Dinner is once again the very pleasant Boar's Head in Ardington and we have arranged a private area with seating for a maximum of 25 people.

Please give some thought to your attendance and also to your menu choices (see below). You can go for two or three courses. Please let me know your choices by Friday 22nd January at the latest, but I suggest you don't leave it too late as we usually run out of spaces.

Report:
The Boar's Head did a great job for us again - despite having at least four different large groups in, they were very professional, friendly and prompt with the serving, And the general consensus was that the food was delicious!

Despite a few unavoidable late cancellations, there was a great buzz in the group and it was a pleasure to be there. Thanks to all for such a fun evening.
