Hi all
 

Once again the Christmas Party and AGM is at the Hawkstone
Park Hotel on Saturday December 14th. Tickets are £30 and we are
taking bookings now.
 

Please let us have a deposit of £10 per person asap and book
your accommodation through us. We have 30 rooms reserved but when they’re gone
they’re gone so please don’t leave it until the last minute.
 

See me at the DZ or give us a call.

Colin,

 

I'll aim to be there subject to the usual messing around from work :)

 

Will put deposit in next time I'm at the DZ (I'll need reminding!)

All the double rooms for the Christmas party are now allocated. We have two twins and one single left so, if you want accommodation, let me know!

Hi all

As it’s getting Autumnal out there it’s time to start finalising bookings for the Christmas Party. There are already nearly sixty people booked so it’s going to be a good one!

The location is as last year at the Hawkstone Park Hotel on the 14th December. If you haven’t booked yet, now’s the time to do it! Everyone is welcome, especially the Student jumpers and partners. Tickets are £30 and you can pay Vicky at the weekend.

Most of our reserved rooms are already booked but there are a couple left so get to it!

Hi all

 

We had thirty rooms reserved for accommodation at the Christmas Party at Hawkstone Park and they have all been allocated. I have spoken to the hotel and they still have rooms available but when they’re gone, they’re gone so don’t hang around.

 

Tickets are still available but we’re filling up quick so let me know asap if you’re coming. Everyone is welcome and they’ve replaced the Christmas decorations! :)

Hi all

 

Time is moving on and the bookings for the Christmas party are going well. All those who have booked provisionally or just paid a deposit will need to pay the balance asap as we will need to pay the hotel soon. Tickets are still available so let me know if you would like some. All our reserved rooms have been allocated but the hotel has a few still available so let me know urgently if you want a room and what type, i.e. double, twin or single. If you’re not sure if you have booked, what you have paid, what is outstanding or if you have booked a room, let me know.

 

As soon as the menu arrives I’ll send it out.

Hi all

 

I’m getting hassled by the hotel for final numbers and payment so, could all those who have not paid the balance or given me their menu choices, please do so by Friday.

 

Thanks

Hi all

 

We’re going to have a seating plan this year to avoid the chaos that ensued last year!

 

If there is anyone you would like to sit with (or anyone you don’t!) let me know. The tables are ten seaters so, if you want to organise your own table, let me know.
