This year’s Christmas function and presentation evening is at 7:00pm for 7:30pm Friday 13 December at The Hind public house, East Bawtry Road, Rotherham.
The type of fare on offer will be dictated by the numbers attending and will either be a sit down meal from a seasonal menu with a choice of starters, mains and desserts including vegetarian options if numbers attending are 32 or less, or if numbers exceed 32 we will eat from a seasonal buffet menu.
In the first instance we are planning for a sit down meal.
Members should already have received an email from me which included details of the sit down menu and are asked to notify me of your menu choices by Friday 29 November. I require a deposit of £11.50 per head with your order, payable by cash, cheque (payable to Rotherham Wheelers) or BACS to the club account. The balance will be payable on the night.
In the event of numbers attending exceeding 32, we will eat from a seasonal buffet menu at a cost of £11.50 per head.
If anyone is unclear about these proposals, please contact me directly.
It is hoped that as many members as possible will attend this event and make it an evening to remember as our club enters its centenary year.
