There will also be a Raffle which some very good quality prizes to be won.
We realise that this is still Summer-time but as 'The Wiltshire' is a very popular and pleasant venue, the Luncheon has to be booked early in order to be able to get the room.
The menu includes the choice of 3 Starters, 3 Main courses, and 3 Dessert courses. If any one has a dietary problem, no worries, this can be catered for.
If any member is interested please contact Mr. Bevis on 01793 326228 and a choices sheet will be made available.
A warm welcome is extended to all especially to the new members who have joined during this past year. We look forward to meeting you all again.
