Yes I know you’ve hear this before but we need to provide our own water cover for this training so any qualified Parents or Siblings that can help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
Dinner Saturday Night – 10 February
We have a booking at Normanville Pub for Dinner. We have been asked to come early at around 5pm and they are making some dedicated tables available for us so please be punctual. This means that potentially we will need to move through in batches but we will see when we get there. Orders will be taken from 5pm. There will be approx. 60 people that they will be serving aside from their usual dinner set so please be patient.
