Message from Helen Lacey : Autumn Social

Posted on 20th September 2019

Our Autumn Social is fast approaching. Saturday 26th October 6pm, Acton Village Hall, Community Centre. This is shaping up to be a fun packed evening. We will be beginning with a quiz, followed by wonderful Indian cuisine from Hannah Caterers. For those who would prefer non spicy food please let us know and there will be an alternative of chicken and chips.
At 8pm we will be entertained by Andy Mills, a wonderful guitarist and singer who knows over 150 fantastic songs from memory dating from the 60's to the present day.
The cost is £15 per person. Please pay by BACS or make cheques payable to NBCYC and send to Rosemary.
Please could you book by 12th October as I have been asked for numbers by Hannah Caterers by 14th October. If you want the non spicy choice let me know so I can inform the Caterers. Whether you book by BAC's or cheque could you also let me know whether you are going to attend.
