December Festive Lunch at The Thornhill Arms, Rushton

Hi, I'm scheduling this in early to get some idea of how many people would be interested in coming to a Christmas lunch.

The Thornhill Arms comes very highly recommended and their Christmas time lunch menu is excellent value for money with two courses at just £10.50 or three for £13.50. Check out link below:

http://www.thornhillarms.co.uk/christmas-time-lunch-menu.php

They do require £5 deposit per person in advance so when RSVP'ing could you let me know when you can get this to me please,I also need your menu choices nearer time (propose booking in November). I don't mind paying first so long as I get it back!

Last year we did Secret Santa which was really good fun and would look to repeat this but at this stage just interested in numbers.  Secret Santa will replace the usual raffle for this month only.

Further details to follow so watch this space!

  • Lynda

    Have extended to 30 now and this will be the final number so unless anyone drops out there will be no new places. I now need to sort out Secret Santa and menu choices. Please could you email me your choices as soon as possible and I will work out a way of doing the Secret Santa and will email who you are buying for in the next week or so. Chris Chapman, hope you are still going to be our 'Santa' - I will get a very big sack lol x :-)

    ps Those who have recently got a place could you let me have your £5 deposits asap as I have paid them already. Thanks

    BTW menu looks ace

    October 17, 2013

  • Lynda

    Am going to see if we can extend the numbers for this so no one misses out. Also some people have still not paid their deposit of £5. Please can I have this by end of month or you may lose your place and I have had to pay this out already!

    October 17, 2013

  • Amanda C.

    I just realised this is my boyfriends birthday. so will be away for the weekend. if i need to pay the £5 deposit just let me know. many thanks Amanda

    October 1, 2013

    • Lynda

      No problem Amanda, there is an automatic waiting list so Janice has now got your place :-) x

      1 · October 2, 2013

  • Lynda

    Have booked for 22 and paid the deposit of £110 which means that should those who have RSVP'd drop out and the place is not filled I will still require the £5 deposit. Please could you let me have this asap either through Paypal or in cash at your next event. Could you also have a look at the menu on the attached link when you have time but won't need your menu choices until end of November. Will be organising Secret Santa around then as well! Looking forward to this :-)

    September 28, 2013

    • lynda r.

      hi Lynda can i have your Paypal details plz .i will send over the weekend.x

      September 28, 2013

    • Lynda

      You can do it through site Lynda, it comes straight to my account like your subs payments. x

      September 28, 2013

  • Sylvia

    Would you like us to bring a raffle prize as I am sure we all have lovely gifts that we could donate and if the Secret Santa is going to be included this would give us time to look, if everyone has a guide of how much to pay for the present and are all allocated a male or female present to buy should be fun. I have a santa outfit if needed.

    September 14, 2013

    • Lynda

      This will all be sorted out nearer time when we know who is going. I did a draw re male or female although this caused havoc last year with people dropping out and others wanting to come after deadline! Once RSVP is confirmed there will be a non refundable deposit of £5 to pay this year plus menu choice but I won't need this til November.

      September 15, 2013

  • anne

    Lynda will give you money when I see you next week or sooner just let me know. x

    September 12, 2013

    • Lynda

      No money required yet, just need idea of numbers for now x

      September 13, 2013

  • Steve

    Hope you all have a good time at this meal, but that evening is my work's Xmas Night out - even I couldn't eat two Christmas meals in one day

    September 11, 2013

  • Sylvia

    I would love to come to this and hopefully get to know members. Look forward to hearing more when this is finalised

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
