Visit to Onzain 4/5th June 2016

Thank you to everybody who responded (positively and negatively) to the invitation to join in the visit to Onzain in June.

There will be a small group of about 15 to 20 members travelling to Onzain. The large groups that sometime travel will not be going this year so there will NOT be a coach booked and all travellers must make their own arrangements to get to Onzain for the weekend.

A number of members have indicated that they have previous commitments over the twinning weekend and regrettably cannot join in on this occasion. We will try to arrange next year's (2017) exchange much further in advance to enable more people to plan their diaries. This year Onzain could not receive us on our proposed dates in May and gave us the June date as an alternative.

Bill will establish separate contact with those who have indicated they wish to go to Onzain. 

We invite anybody who has not yet responded or who changes their mind or arrangements to contact Bill by email and he will add them to the list of travellers.

Music will be by the TWO BLACK EYES party band and promises to be a great night.

There will be a cash bar on the night and a buffet of party snacks will be provided during the interval break.

As usual we will have a raffle for much sought after prizes and raffle tickets will be on sale during the evening.
