Britsoc Chairman’s Letter. May 2015


Dear members,

Once more I must appeal to you to help us make our events come to life.

After many years of organising our popular Blind Date, Tracey has decided to step aside and so we are looking for someone to carry on where she left off.

Tracey deserves our thanks for her efforts in making the event great fun and very well organised.

A large attendance of “singles” have enjoyed a short date and a large after party – I do hope that we can continue this tradition, which has in the past resulted in a couple of weddings!

Jane and the team have started the long preparations for the Xmas Ball – the date is set for December 12th and we are planning to hold the event at the NH Barbizon, with our Michelin star chef friend Chris in charge of the menu. Watch this space for details and join the team if you can!

The annual Shakespeare’s birthday bash was a great success – many thanks to Paul for once again managing a hectic and hilarious evening. Great quotes and terrible singing were accompanied by good food and wine from our hosts, Greenwoods.

An email to will be passed on to the teams who need your help.
