Christmas Lunch (with Menu!)

From Margaret Kyle, 2018 Christmas Lunch Co-ordinator

We are already looking forward to December! What better time could there possibly be for planning Christmas activities other than in the middle of the hottest summer for 40+ years? No time like the present perhaps!
Below you will find menu details of the SLU3A Christmas Dinner at Hothorpe Hall on Friday 14th December 2018 at 12 noon for 12-30pm. The cost is £26 per head. We have a fairly tight reservation time-frame with Hothorpe Hall and so your kind attention to making a booking as soon as possible will be most appreciated. If you have any queries, please contact me on 01858 463545 or at Bookings to be accompanied by your cheque please. (made payable to SLU3A). Thank you in anticipation.
