Les Watson has very kindly been in touch with the Chainbridge Hotel about arranging a club Dinner Dance weekend. The date would be either 20th or 27th March. They would provide bed and breakfast Friday night, and then dinner followed by a disco Saturday night, breakfast Sunday morning.

Dinner would be a three course menu with a choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts. The price for the weekend would be; £269.90 for two people sharing (twin or double) £214.90 for single occupancy room. £35 per person, price for meal and disco only.

Sounds great. We need to know numbers and preferred date ASAP to check we have enough interest and secure a date.
