    Hi Friends, This is a MeetUp on 24th June. Most of us should have been to Woodlands frequently. They launched a 60+ item vegan menu early in 2019. The owners and the chefs fully understand vegan and Jain dietary requirements. Starting from June this year, we shall have more MeetUps coming. We shall be supported by many vegan volunteer groups in town in participating various vegan events. Please stay tuned for our upcoming announcement. Message Shara or John for any additional information - or to share anything. The event #476 is planned to be self order/self pay - if more than 15 people attend, we may order some set dishes to share. We have a block of seats reserved near the back of the restaurant. Woodlands provides mostly South Indian food. a) Those attending please RSVP = 'Yes'. b) We politely request editing RSVP to 'No' asap by anyone unable to attend who previously RSVPs 'Yes' to this event. Spaces are limited and consideration for others is appreciated. We similarly respectfully request anyone bringing a guest(s) updates the +1, +2 etc in their RSVP asap should your number of intended guests change c) To help focus on RSVP status, anyone who 'no shows' against a 'Yes' RSVP will regrettably be banned for 1 month from the group d) Since this event is self order / self pay, unusually for one of our meetups there is no cut off time for arrival. e) Anyone bringing children aged 12 or under, please message me directly to discuss. We can then liaise with each restaurant individually re their child policy to manage the specifics for each event. We hope you understand all the above helps us and our working with the restaurant for everyone's benefit. We very warmly look forward to seeing those who attend.
