23rd January   – President’s Tea Party

In order to try to cope with postal disruption especially over Christmas two events are being  brought to your attention in the same newsletter.  Please note that separate cheques are required for each outing.

The President’s Tea Party will be held in the Atrium restaurant of the Wallace Collection, Manchester Square, London.  Please meet at 2.45pm in the entrance hallway of the Collection ready to sit down at 3pm.  As the Collection closes at 5pm it would be better to have a look at the pictures etc beforehand if you wish to do so.  The Wallace Collection is free to enter. The cost of the tea is £15.00 per person and replies should reach me by Wednesday 13th January.  It may be more convenient  depending on the postal situation to e-mail or phone  me that you are coming and to pay by cheque on the day.

Contact numbers on the day: Anne  07795 481 646 Margaret: 07779 550467

Personal information form:  if you have not already done so please return this form as soon as possible and by 31st December at the latest.  Even if your information has not changed since the last time the booklet was updated it would be helpful to know this.

Margaret Goldfarb   Events Secretary
