Dia - Simon's vacated seat is yours, if you can make it. If you can, please say so here within a week.

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex, sadly I'll have to miss this ever so indulging gathering. Being right at the end of our very busy Christmas period it will be all hands to the pumps... I really appreciate you letting me know! Many thanks, D.

Unfortunately the Cricketer's Arms in Rickling Green has closed at short notice due to "unforeseen circumstances". For reasons I'm happy to explain face to face I really don't want to stay at the Saffron Hotel so I have booked myself into Buriton House B&B, which is just next to Newport railway station and about 10 minutes walk from the White Horse. Buriton House has two rooms, the Toll House Inn (3 minutes walk from the White Horse, but 15 minutes from the station) has two rooms and can sleep up to five people. In addition, Airbnb has a complete 2 bed cottage available in Newport (4 minutes walk; 15 from the station).

Please don't leave your overnight accommodation arrangements to the last minute if you're a confirmed attendee!
I've booked into The Cricketers.

Ralph has failed to respond to the opportunity to attend the Christmas event in Newport, Essex.

Rich - you’re next up. Would you like the seat?

In addition, a number of Industry Guests have declined the chance to join us. That leaves a seat for Christopher, should he want it.

@AHB thanks for the heads up but I now have plans on this date. I would like to be added to the reserve list for 2020, as and when that becomes open!
