The Orange Tree is a traditional pub with no music that can make it hard to hear other people. It serves a wide range of drinks and is only a couple of minutes walk from Richmond station.
We are likely to be at the front part of the venue, but this is to be confirmed. Wherever we are, I will have some signs displayed and the bar staff should know our location. Please ask them for Sanjay’s group. I will be wearing a lilac/purple shirt with black trousers, possibly with a suit type black leather jacket .
Don't let the large number of RSVPs put you off, you're just not going to be able to meet everyone in one evening and at any one time you're likely to be chatting in a group of about 2-5 people.
If you're a new member then don't worry, everyone is really friendly and the meetup has a relaxed, friendly & pleasant atmosphere.
Helen will also be your host for the night. Both of us are hosting the event for fun, and it's also a social evening for us to relax and not a work commitment. So although we are looking forward to being active in introducing people, we won't necessarily spend the whole evening looking for people to be introduced to each other. And therefore, don't be shy and introduce yourself to us, and we will be more than happy to introduce some people to you :)
Looking forward to meeting new members and seeing existing members.
Please also considering joining a new group created which will have some events that will not be advertised in this group (such as bowling and disco boat cruise) - http://www.meetup.com/Richmond-TW-Events/
