WRA NEWSLETTER – DECEMBER 2019
With just under a month to go until Christmas Day, the December newsletter has a festive theme.
RESIDENTS’ CHRISTMAS DO – Friday 13th December
Just a reminder of the details of the Christmas get together. We’ve had a good response so far but we do need to confirm numbers with the venue soon. As last year, we’re holding at the Fisherman’s Haunt and the date is Friday 13th December, starting at 7pm. There will be a welcoming drink of mulled cider for everyone.
For those who would like to eat, the menus are below. We’ve been asked to preorder to make sure that everyone can have their choice so, if you’d like to join in, please could you reply to firstname.lastname@example.org with your names and menu choices. We’ll collate them and get them back to the venue. If you’d rather book direct because you’d like to eat earlier, please feel free and we can add you into the overall numbers. Please note, you will be able to use your Resident’s Discount Card as usual on food (if anyone who has moved in recently doesn’t have a card, please say and we’ll make sure you get one).
It was a really good evening last year, so we’re looking forward to seeing lots of our neighbours to raise a glass for the festive season.
