As promised here are the details of the pre-season event which has been very ably arranged by our Social Secretary DC.
Exquisite meal at Brasserie Blanc
The night begins with a fabulous meal at Brasserie Blanc in Walton St, Jericho at 7.15pm on Friday 8th April. Dinner is just £33.75 per head for what looks like an excellent 3 course menu (please see below).
Currently David has booked 30 places and it would be fabulous to have as many members and WAGs as possible to make this a great pre-season event to rival the unforgettable "Moules with Minty" from a few years ago.
71-72 Walton Street
[NB. If anyone sees Simmo heading for the West Bank then please let him know that it's the Jericho in Oxford!]
To book your place(s) please contact David Cole on firstname.lastname@example.org This is a new email address which we would ask you to use if you have any queries or correspondence to do with social events and the Social Secretary. Please also let David have your menu choices which must be made in advance for the meal.
NB. The club is initially covering the deposit of £10 per head to secure the tables so please bring £10 cash with you on the night to reimburse the club for the deposit and the final £20 must be paid direct to the restaurant – please talk to David if that isn’t clear.
And there’s more….
DC has pulled in a few favours and arranged for those inclined to an après dinner tipple to head to Raoul’s Cocktail Bar where he promises to entertain one and all with daring tales of his youth!
Please get in touch with David ASAP to book your seats for the dinner on Friday 8th April.
