Safari Supper
7.30pm Saturday 23rd November

The social event for the end of the year will be a Safari Supper, lots of fun and a good way of getting to know other members.

The Safari Supper means meeting together and then being handed a slip of paper, which says where you are eating your starter (unless of course you are hosting that course, when you will be heading off to your own house). When you have finished your starters, it is all change and you are off somewhere else for your main course (or to your own house to act as host for the main course). We then do dessert back where we started from all together. Hosts cater for between 6 and 8 people including themselves and of course this is all agreed well in advance.

Please let Celia Binfield know if you want to host a course, Tel 01793 751137 or email celia.binfield@btopenworld.com.

Please let Celia know if you have any special dietary requirements. Tickets will be £10 a head. To simplify the administration can we ask that you print off the form and drop your payment into Celia at 98 Deansfield. Please enclose the requested information with your payment.

Call My Bluff Wine Tasting

The wine tasting went off very well agin and everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves.

Our thanks go to Jane our oenologist for an informative and entertaining evening. Thanks too to John, Clive and Antoine for their entertaining but often misleading contributions.

Thanks to David for the food and to everyone else who helped set the evening up and helped clear up afterwards.
