Welcome to the first newsletter of the 2011/12 season, and my first newsletter following

Old School Hall, Cuckfield
7.30pm – 10.00pm
For our first get together of the autumn we will be meeting at our usual venue in
Cuckfield. There will be a welcome drink with nibbles providing a great opportunity
to mingle and catch up on what everybody’s been doing over the summer.
As usual, we are asking Members to bring a plate of finger food, savoury or sweet,
which will then be shared. Don’t forget to bring your own wine (and glasses) to enjoy
with the food. Soft drinks and water will be available.
After savouring the delights of the Members’ hospitality, there may be a chance to
shed a few calories and perhaps stimulate the brain cells. The cost for the evening
will be £5.00 per person, children under 16 free, payable at the door. We look forward
to seeing you there.
