It is time again to invite you all to apply for the Christmas Lunch, which will be held again at the East Sussex National Hotel & Spa, Little Horsted, Uckfield, East Sussex TN22 5ES. Telephone No. 01825 880088.

The arrival time is from 11 a.m. onwards, when complimentary tea and coffee will be available in the Hotel Foyer. The National Function Bar will also be open from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on a Cash basis.

Lunch will be served promptly at 1 p.m. and we would ask you to take your seats from 12.30. Can I please ask you again to organise your table of 10 friends, which will be of great help to me, returning your reply slips and cheques together. As in previous years I will allocate seating for those of you who are unable to make up a complete table.

Cheques will be presented on or around November payday.

N.B. Final numbers will be confirmed by 25/11/19 after which, we are unable to provide any refunds.
