Group's First Anniversary Celebration Barbecue!

  • July 20, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Please note the change of venue for the barbecue now as my partner, Martin, has very kindly offered the use of his garden and barbecue to host our first anniversary celebration.  He is fortunate enough to have a large patio area and complete tarpaulin covering should the weather change! For security reasons address details are only shown to members of this group and the house number will be emailed to all those who RSVP within the next few days.  (A very big thank you to Neil though for the very kind offer of his garden for this event and I'm sure we will take advantage another time!).

As always it will be a case of bring whatever you drink with you and I will be happy to buy/make all the food for a contribution of say £5 a head? I need to know how many vegetarians will be attending too so I can cater for those equally. If you prefer to bring your own food instead, just let me know. As well as the barbecue food I will provide snacks and nibbles to see us through to the evening/night.  There will also be a cake lol.

If the weather is kind to us this should be a really good event and I'm sure we will all have a good time! It is open to everyone regardless of how long you have been a member and I hope to see as many of you as possible.

I will send a further email with full details very shortly but just make a note of the date in your diaries for now.

    Great fun, lovely bunch of people, very welcoming....especially as I'm new to the area and hadn't met anyone who was there before. I was treated like an old friend!!
