Mid week Christmas Special 20-22 November 2018
Many of you will remember our last visit to Botany Bay, and how much fun it was.
I have just had a chat with Jerry North, the General Manager of Botany Bay and he is delighted that we are considering a return visit.
On the approach to Christmas, they convert the top floor of the building into the most fabulous 'Grotto', selling many unusual and quirky Christmas presents, ideal for that 'someone special'.
We had to limit numbers last time to around a dozen vans but, this year he is happy for twice as many.
There will be lots to see and do, and I would urge you, if the idea appeals, to put your names down soon to avoid disappointment.
Obviously, more details will be posted throughout the year.
I have today had a chat with Leslie, who is the landlady of The Lock and Quay PH, BotanyBay, and asked her if we could all come for an evening meal on Tuesday 20th November at 6pm.
The kitchen is normally closed on Tuesdays but she said that she would be happy to open it for a group booking.
It would be to our advantage to eat together on Tuesday as there should be plenty of seating available as its normally Cooks 'day off'.
I have told her to provisionally expect a couple of dozen people, but she understands that this may change as the date approaches, and I will keep her informed in good time.
If the idea of an evening meal doesn't appeal to you, please let me know, as soon as you are able, otherwise I will assume you are onboard.
The canal trip is still a possibility, but last time we had a Hotpot Supper, and because it was dark we couldn't see any scenery.
Let me have your thoughts on having a lunchtime cruise (or not) and I will get a few prices together.
There is still the Carboot Sale on Wednesday.
I will keep you all up to date, as possibilities arise.

Yes please Roger
Was about to say yes then checked calendar, I work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so will have to miss it
Don't Worry, Be Happy
Are we supposed to guess where it is?
I'm presuming it's not the one in Oz & there's more than one in the UK.
Sorry Sharon, Yes it is the one near Chorley, as indicated by Tezza33.
I'll post more details a bit nearer the time, but generally speaking, its a lot of fun. A chance to do a bit of present browsing, for that someone special!
We also get to have a bit of fun on the canal and in the local pub, I cant guarentee about any wine tasting this year but, you never know..... anything could happen?????
