VINTRY & DOWGATE Summer Party....

Summer Party - Monday 10th July 2017....

Dear Friends

I am delighted to be able to invite you to our 2017 Summer Party which will take place on Monday, 10th July from 6.30pm to 9.00pm.   Our friends at Nomura have once again kindly allowed us to hold this party on the beautiful roof terrace overlooking the Thames and Tower Bridge. There are great views from the venue of, amongst other things, the Shard, HMS Belfast, Southwark Cathedral, the Golden Hinde II and Tower Bridge, which has been known on occasions to open specially for our party!

There will be Pimms to welcome us, with beer, wine and soft drinks thereafter and there will also be a delicious offering of hot and cold food and desserts.   This is a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow members and guests amid informal surroundings – you will also be able to wander around the rooftop kitchen gardens.  I do hope that as many of you as possible will be able to accept this invitation and join us for a wonderful evening by the river.

The cost of the evening is £35 for members and £38 for guests.  As usual, you are requested to send the attached application form, fully completed, with your cheque to Christine as soon as you can, in any event, no later than Monday 3rd July. If you wish to pay electronically, please note that you will still need to send the completed form to Christine with your electronic payment reference clearly noted on the form.  Do please get your application in as quickly as possible.

2)  There is another vitally important date for your diary:

The Annual Civic Lunch – Friday 8th September

This year’s Civic Lunch is particularly special because it is to be held in the spectacular Egyptian Hall in Mansion House for the first time and we are honoured that it will be in the presence of the Lord Mayor, Lady Mayoress and other distinguished guests.  We are delighted that the Lord Mayor will speak and you will know that he never fails to entertain with a brilliant and witty speech. 

We need a really large turnout to make the occasion successful.  Do please invite your guests now, many of whom, I know, will be thrilled to be able to dine in such wonderful and prestigious surroundings (and we are encouraging you to invite as many ‘paying guests’ as possible).  The calling notice, with full details, timings and cost, will be sent out in the first week of July so please do look out for it!

I look forward to seeing you all at these two exciting events.

Very best wishes

Jonathan

Chairman
