Many thanks to all of you who responded to the late December email regarding the proposal to hold a Centenary dinner in the Painted Hall of The Old Royal Naval College.
The response has been much greater than we expected and has also been overwhelmingly positive. The choice of venue has clearly struck a chord with Old Roans everywhere.
We have accordingly now confirmed our booking for Saturday 24th September 2011 and a deposit of £1,200 has been paid. We can now all go ahead with our respective plans for what we hope will be a truly memorable occasion.
The Roan Magazine is due for distribution in a few weeks and within the envelope there will be a booking form with further information and a small questionnaire. If for any reason you do not receive this please contact one of us as below.
We look forward to receiving your responses before the end of May and to seeing as many of you as possible on September 24th.
