Brian Bruce has taken on the roll of booking guests and will also be a resident musician/singer.
Previously Ivan was doing this job a demanding and difficult roll. He has decided to let someone
else take on the task so that he can devote more time to his children.

We take this opportunity to thank him for all his hard work on behalf of the club. Ivan is to stay
resident singer/musician and treasurer of the club.

As from Thursday 16th December 2004 we will not be meeting at the Anglesea Arms

A venue has been found at the Change of Horses, Farnborough High Street, Orpington.
However the Change of Horses has just changed hands to a new owner and landlord. They are
considering the use of the restaurant on Thursday evenings for evening meals. We are awaiting
confirmation from the owner and the landlord as to whether they will be requiring the restaurant on
Thursday evenings. Subject to their requirement, hopefully the room will be available most
Thursdays, with occasional use of an off shoot of the bar area.

landlord changed his mind about us using their function room. Unfortunately we had already printed
700 handouts.
