Following on from the discussions at the last Exec Comm meeting, a very full survey on possible venues for the Social event 2024. The result is that we are going to press ahead with London and the reasons are as follows:
  • London has never been used as the focal point for a Social Event in the recent past and St Katharine’s Dock and Tower Hill are areas of great interest;
  • London is reachable for most members by train;
  • Hotels in the St Katharine’s Dock and Tower Hill in the City are still reasonably priced.
The proposal is as follows:
  • Dates: 3rd & 4th October
  • Choice of 3 hotels in the price range of £130-£185 incl breakfast: Tower Hotel, St Katharine’s Way: Travelodge London Central Tower Bridge: Hub by Premier Inn, 28 Great Tower Street.
  • Dinner at Cote, St Katharine’s Dock p.m. 3rd Oct at circa £40-42 pp fixed menu to be decided;
  • Places of interest: All Hallows by the Tower for UK shipping company stain glass windows and crypt museum; MN Monument Tower Hill; The Tower.
  • Possible tour p.m. 3rd Oct: Tower Bridge.
  • River trip to Cutty Sark and Maritime Museum, Greenwich a.m. 4th Oct.
Could you please let the committee have your immediate response to the above proposal and confirmation that you will support the event.
The intention is to send out a Notice to members as soon as possible to gauge firm interest as commitments will need to be made on behalf of the WA to hold bookings, etc.
We were fortunate last year with inside knowledge for bookings at Hayling Island and Chichester – the commitment in London this year will be more demanding.
