We’ve talked about having met so many lovely people through our children attending Charles Dickens, we’re writing to let you all know our proposed plan for a pre-Christmas get together for any families who would like to come, it’s arranged for Sunday, 15 December. We’ve found a family friendly restaurant:
Meeting time at the restaurant will be 11.30am, all the family are very much included. We intend to use a set menu which will include a mulled wine on arrival (or soft drink if you prefer) and two soft drinks with the meal, any hot beverages or alcohol will be available for those who want to buy it separately. The set menus are attached, the adult menu is £19.50 and the child’s £8.50.
We thought it would be a lovely idea to have father Christmas come along and visit the children at the restaurant (if there are sufficient people who would like to come along). For the sake of organising we propose that we all purchase a present for our own child/children costing up to £5 (that way we know they’ll like what they’ll receive and if someone can’t come at the last moment no child will miss out), please wrap it and make the name of the child very clear on the appropriate gift (not very sophisticated but capital letters on a white label works best) – and then Santa can distribute to each child when he arrives at 2pm.
Please let us know if you are able to join us (so we can book the space) and please forward to anyone you know who might also be interested.
We’re very much hoping that you’ll all want to come, it should be lots of fun.
