SCARA Reunion Lunch 2014

Post date: Jun 09, 2014 7:0:49 PM

Dear SCARA Member,

It is still a little way off but the Committee would like to provide advance notice of this year's reunion.

Venue: Grand Connaught Rooms, Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5DA

Date: Friday 31st October 2014  from 11:30 to 16:00

We are holding the event a little later this year and on a Friday, this being a better day for some but as it turns out, slightly less convenient for others.  We hope that the change will be good for the majority and may also encourage some members who have not attended in previous years to attend the event.  Maybe even spend a weekend in London...?

You will be aware that Maersk has withdrawn its sponsorship but by changing the day of the event from a Wednesday to a Friday we have been able to secure a better price with the venue management.  And although we have investigated other venues we have not been able to better the deal offered by the Cannaught Rooms.  These annual London lunches now run at a loss but fortunately, SCARA still has a funds surplus from previous years' events plus sponsorship from one or two generous individual members. 

Following the success last year we will again open up the event to partners, as well as long term temps and IT contractors.  Also, if you know of the widow of an OCL/PONL colleague, they too would be very welcome.  The price will be £18 members and £20 guests.  

Please do not send acceptance reply or monies until you receive the formal invitation at the end of July.  This is an advance warning so that you can put the date in your diary and consider cheap travel options if required.  Booking with can save a few pounds .

Kind regards,

Belinda McCormack

SCARA Hon.Sec.
