Chill December brings the sleet, Blazing fire, and Christmas treat. Sara Coleridge


Sunday Lunch Club

Sunday 16th December 1:00 pm

Brunswick & Thorn Restaurant

This newly opened Bistro in Thorn Road offers a very tasty variety of treats for Sunday lunch

Please contact Jenny, Queen Genevive if you would like her to book a place for you

A word about bills for the lunch club: recently several ladies have paid their part of the communal bills separately and at different times. This makes it very difficult indeed for those ‘left behind’ to sort out the communal bill and work out which items have and have not yet been settled. This is not fair and spoils our enjoyment of the event

From now on we must ask that no one pays until the whole amount is being paid.  If anyone needs to pay their allocated share by card that is, of course, fine but it must be as part of the communal payment and not as a separate transaction. If you might need to leave early, please beg, borrow or ATM some cash and leave it ‘on the table’

If you come to the lunch club we will assume your agreement to this procedure Thank you
