Christmas Lunch

. The meal will be on the 12th December 2021 at 1pm.  The venue is the Swan at Forton, Swan Hotel - Joules Brewery .  This is just outside Newport so very central for us all and they have very kindly given us our own private room for the meal.   Remember, we will not be riding that day so you can all dress up in your finest party wear.  It is amazing how well some of you scrub up when out of lycra :-)   We can send the Christmas Meal menu and the usual menu which the Swan have made available should you prefer to order off that..  We will need to order in advance whichever menu you prefer so please ensure you send us your choices in good time. In previous years, we have asked you to also pay in advance to make paying the bill easier.  We will still be doing that this year, but we won't be asking for the money until early December just in case Covid decides to put paid to Christmas again this year.     Please let us know if you are able to attend, all are welcome even if you have not been able to join us on a ride this year.  It will be a great chance to re-engage with everyone ahead of hopefully a more normal 2022.
