London Get-Together: 22 November 2018

London Get-Together – Thursday 22nd November 2018, 7.00pm – 9.30pm

Following the success of the previous London events, the Society would like to invite all Old Maidstonians to an early evening informal gathering being held at The George Inn in Southwark, from 19:00 until 21:30. The evening will be hosted by our President, Mr Paul Smith.

The historic 17th century George Inn is a galleried coaching inn at 77 Borough High Street, SE1 1NH, close to The Shard and London Bridge. See the pictures from a previous occasion!

A private room with pay bar has been booked and there will be a buffet. The Society will meet part of the costs of the evening, but we would appreciate a nominal £10 contribution, which can be paid on the evening. In order that we can have an idea of the numbers wishing to attend, and therefore the amount for the buffet, we would be very grateful if you would please let us know at oms@oldmaidstonians.org.uk. We have to advise The George Inn 10 days in advance, so please respond as soon as possible.

Warmest regards,
Graham Belson on behalf of the Committee
