November Meeting Cancelled

Dear All,

November meeting cancelled.

I have just been informed by the key holder of the venue where we hold our meetings that they have double booked the hall and as the other booking is for the whole complex rather than just the one room, they decided to cancel our booking. They are not at all bothered that we are a regular booking and that this leaves us without a venue at extremely short notice.

I regret therefore that our November meeting is cancelled. I will contact everyone on our membership list but if you know of anyone who might have been attending please let them know.

Please accept my apologies but at such short notice, there is little that we can do. I hope to see you at the Christmas Lunch and in the new year.

I'll re-schedule my talk on the Ashton Court Leet
