On Sunday 19th April (to avoid Easter Sunday the previous week), there will be a lunch in the upstairs room at The Bent Arms, Lindfield, at 12 for 12,30 sharp. We shall need to start lunch at 12.30 as the hotel is very busy indeed on Sundays.

After lunch there will be a simple, walking treasure hunt around Lindfield,. Nothing to collect, just searching for the answers to clues. This will take approximately an hour. Sexmoggers are welcome to come just to the lunch, or just for the treasure hunt if they wish.

The pub will need to know numbers and menu choices by Tuesday 14th April so please let David and Marilyn know by email to mogsatappletree@googlemail.com. The menu is shown below:

Mike and Jo Fenwick have kindly volunteered to organise the Spring Lunch on the second Sunday in May.

Most people will be aware by now that our normal venue, Barnsgate Manor, has unfortunately ceased trading but we have found a welcoming alternative which can accommodate us on the same date and can provide all the facilities that we are looking for.  This is Hayward’s Heath Golf Club (RH16 1SL) which lies on High Beech Lane between Haywards Heath and Lindfield where we will gather at 1200 noon on Sunday 10th May.  This weekend coincides with the VE Day celebrations..
We will be treated to welcome drinks on arrival, followed by a three course lunch with coffee/tea to finish.  The cost of all this is a subsidised £25 per head which I think that you will agree, represents very good value.

I have attached a copy of the menu from which we can make our choices and also a copy of the booking form which should be returned by post, e-mail or in person as soon as possible but in any case by April 20th.  We will be at The Robin Hood next Sunday and hopefully at The Bent Arms on April 19th.  If you prefer to pay by Bank Transfer, let me know and I will send the bank details.

We’ll try again!  Following the unfortunate postponement of our Spring Lunch we have been able to vary the season and arrange an Autumn Lunch.  Long standing members will remember that for various reasons we have tried Spring, Summer and Winter so now, like Vivaldi, we have the full set.
Our Autumn Lunch will be held on Sunday 11th October at Haywards Heath Golf Club following the same format as our ill-fated Spring Lunch.  We will send out details and booking forms nearer the event but in the meantime it’s a date to put in the diary.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
Best Regards,
Mike and Jo Fenwick. Sunday 11 October 2020
