City Diners – 26 July 2019, The George at Southwark

Once again I have awaited the fairer weather to appear before setting the date for this year’s Old Askean City Diners Summer  Ladies’ Lunch.   We will be revisiting The George Inn at the Borough on Friday 26th July, sitting down at 1:00pm.

Please invite your partners and any other guests who may wish to dine in historic surroundings in a convivial atmosphere.  As always, we especially welcome Old Askeans who may not have previously attended (even if not members of the Association). At our last function, we had 3 members who attended for the first time.  The cost of the 3 course meal remains at the astonishingly value-for-money price of £37.00 including wine.  I will circulate the menu next month and, those of a more delicate nature, may wish to opt for a 2 course meal.

So, ensure you put this date in your diary and please let me have your intention to attend with numbers and names of guests

Advent Lunch at Chislehurst Golf Club on Thursday 21st November 2019

Dear Fellow Old Askean,

The Advent Lunch will be held in the Napoleon Room of the Chislehurst Golf Club (Camden Park Road, Chislehurst, Kent, BR7 5HJ).

The Club is located at the junction of Prince Imperial Road and Summers Hill in Chislehurst, Kent.  There’s a location map here: www.chislehurstgolfclub.co.uk/chislehurst_golf_club.html

The Advent Lunch is always a popular event and the size of the room, albeit palatial, restricts us to 80 diners.  It would be advisable therefore, to book early to avoid any disappointment.  As usual there is a three-course meal.

We also have the use of the lounge and a cash bar is provided, where drinks can be consumed with your friends before the meal, and wines and/ or soft drinks can be ordered for consumption in the dining room.

The lunch is ordered for 1:00pm start, so it will be in order to arrive from 12:00 noon to 12:30pm.  The room is booked until 3:30pm. 

Yours very sincerely,

Roger Goodman
