The addition of the option to pay by BACS for the attendance at the Annual Reunion Dinner on Friday 10 May 2019 has prompted enquiries regarding on-line bookings.
The process by which we provide for the seating plan and returns of those attending remain with the reply slips from the Newsletter even though you may not, now, need to send a cheque. If you do not do so, I will have to create slips for any booking arriving by other means.
Will any member wishing to avail themselves of the BACS payment option still post me their reply slip, duly completed, in order that the administration of the attendance requests remains as in previous years?
