The Cricketers, Petworth West Sussex

For our Christmas lunch this year we are making a return visit to the Cricketers in Duncton.  This lovely old village pub has loads of character and provides a warm and comfortable venue for this special occasion.  As usual we will have a private room suitably decorated for the time of year. Members will also have the opportunity to make a charitable donation in lieu of sending Christmas cards.

The Christmas menu offers a choice of two or three courses to include coffee and a mince pie priced at £23.95 and £27.95 respectively.  The menu is shown below and we are required to pre-order.  Please advise your attendance and menu choices by Monday 3rd.December.

Barnsgate Manor, Uckfield West Sussex

It may appear a little early to be providing details of next year’s Spring lunch but we need to book now in order to secure the venue.  We will be returning to Barnsgate Manor and have booked for Sunday 5 May 2019.  This date is the only one that avoids clashing with Easter, Montlhery and a Hopmog event.
