We have now booked the Hare and Hounds for Dec 15th (Friday).  The booking is initially for a dozen at 19:30h.

If you would like to come along (the food is excellent and the evening most enjoyable) we shall continue taking names, rank and serial numbers at the December society meeting on the 5th, failing that please contact Mark Dawson.  First come, first serve. 

Taxi arrangements will be discussed at the meeting.
