mentioning please if you would like transport in the specially arranged carriage that will collect and return at the usual places.

There will be no coach as there has been a lack of demand which would have made provision excessively expensive.
On behalf of President Gary and the Club Service Committee I am please to attach a formal invitation to this very special annual event set in the delightful Riverside Hotel Mildenhall.

If you don't already have happy memories of balmy sunlit evenings strolling with your loved one or friends on the lawn down to the gently sloping banks of The River Lark under the weeping willows to the old bridge, it's high time you acquired some, or for most of us refresh them. The long range weather forecast looks very pleasant.

We have what I hope you find a deliciously tempting menu (below) with something for everyone. The hotel have added (without hesitation) that with a bit of notice they will be happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements.

After a special dinner we have Bryan Thurlow on "Music Hall Memories" - A light hearted potted history of British Music Hall with occasional old favourite songs.

I hope you're sitting down reading this but (likely because we've opted for a midweek evening) we managed to cut the cost by around 10% to a mere £29.50 per head for a four course meal with a welcome drink included. As usual you can order other drinks and table wine can be ordered at the bar. Iced water will be continuously available at every table.

A charabanc, courtesy of Thetford Coach Services is available , so whilst replying please let me know whether you'll need transport - pick up from the usual places.
Last booking for the coach by the 7th of June.
Feel free to invite your friends or family as guests to what promises to be a memorable evening.
Please reply as soon as possible with your and your partner's/guest's menu choices,(using the item prefix) and transport needs. Places will be allocated on a first response basis.
There will be no coach as there has been a lack of demand which would have made provision excessively expensive.
