FINAL ALERT: Next Wednesday is the annual pre-Christmas drink for (what has become known as) Fobs-lite. As in previous years we have booked the upstairs room at the St Bride’s Tavern (website below). Time 12.30 on Wednesday December 6th. We have had a good sprinkling of acceptances, but the more, the merrier – and hope for a last minute surge. To remind – £10 each behind the bar – and as long as we reach £200 in booze spending (no problem!), we get the room for free. Food separate: it can be ordered at the bar.
