We have now booked the Hare and Hounds for Dec 1st for 19:00h.  The booking is for up to 15 people, give or take, so it will be first come first serve.  A pre order of menu choices will be required a week before the date.

No deposit is required from the Hare and Hounds at this stage.  The Christmas fayre is excellent and the evening most enjoyable.  We shall be taking names, rank and serial numbers at the November society meeting on the 6th.  Failing that, please contact Mark Dawson.
