Dinner and dance end of year celebration, 25th November 2023

Hi all members old and new. A quick reminder to pencil 25th Nov into your calendars if you wish to come to the annual end of season dinner and dance. If you are new to the club the evening is a time to give out a few trophies, say a few thank you's but mainly to have a great time socialising and dancing the night away. The venue will be at the Marine Hotel in Tankerton. If you fancy staying over for the night book the hotel direct. There will be a three course meal, menu choices will be sent out to ticket holders. The hotel chef can cater for food allergies etc, just let us know nearer the time. We have booked a great six piece band "The Chillbillies" who had everyone up on the dance floor last year. Dress code is wear your best, so come in what makes you feel special. If you wish to bring friends and family we can have between 8 and 10 on a table.

Tickets will be by email and are available now. Early bird price is £45 per person up to Sept st .After that tickets will be £50 per person. So book early, especially if you are booking a whole table.

You can pay for tickets in three ways:

Cash: paid into the bar till. Please put a note in the till with the money so Dave and Jenny know where the extra money has come from.

Sum up machine: Bar or Galley

Bank transfer: HBSC, sort code 40-24-12, Acc No. 61409611, payment Ref. Dinner and Dance.
