Christmas Party

Hi, the votes have been counted and verified and Polignano's has just pipped Live Dosa! Polignano's has an updated menu, so there will be some new dishes to choose from.

Note: Fri 2 Dec was the date everyone who completed the survey could mate.

We'll be doing Secret Santa again, where we each buy a favourite book to be put into a lucky dip sack!

Partners/friends welcome.

    Thank you to my secret Santa for 'How To Be Good'
    Book (Nick Hornby). I can barely put this book down and laughing out loud quite a bit.
    NB Am I allowed to read before Christmas? Too late the deed Is done!

    Just checking - is the Secret Santa between book club members or everyone who is going?

    November 14

    • Paul

      I'd say everyone or it could get a bit confusing especially if someone gets that lemony stuff out first!
