|Meet Details||We return to this most rewarding of sites where the hall is available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 7.30pm. The village fete should be on Saturday morning and the Three Hills Walk on Bank Holiday Monday.
This year the meet has a big change. The normal Saturday evening dance will be a Barn Dance to which all of the local villagers are to be invited. The village hall committee have suggested that a bar & food will be provided and whilst Home Counties members will not need to pay for the dance, we will be expected to contribute towards the cost of the food at £5 per head and buy our own drinks.Please book your Ploughmans Supper at least one week in advance of the Meet on 07783 558237
This is an opportunity for promoting our activities to non-members, so please come.
