Please click here to see details of the Christmas meal which will take place straight after the carol concert on 15 December in the village hall. Khans will be providing the set menu. We need to get a handle on numbers as soon as possible - Anne Brewer is collecting £3 deposits at rehearsals and also you can email her - address on information sheet. Could you also please let Anne know of any particular dietary requirements.
We hope as many of you as possible can come along to get the Christmas season off to a good start, and please bring your "plus one" along too!
