Hello Everyone

 

I’m happy to say that our Annual Dinner will be held once again this year at The Atlantic Tower Mercure Hotel, Chapel Street Liverpool on Saturday 16th November 2019 at 1830hrs for 1900hrs.

 

The staff are more than happy to welcome us back and have very generously offered us the same rates and prices as last year. Over the past few years, the hotel has done us proud and has grown a fondness to our branch and a willingness to do that little bit more with attention to detail and special requests.

 

I am pleased they are happy to accommodate us again as I know we all like continuity and a familiar venue and hopefully with the same team looking after us.

 

As usual, the dress code for gentlemen is Black Tie or Lounge Suit or Blazer with Regimental Tie & medals Ladies – just look GORGEOUS as you always do!

 

This year’s menu is as follows and I ask you to choose 1 of the options for each course:-
