Welcome to our Annual Christmas Lunch.

For our 2012 Christmas Lunch we'll have exclusive use of the conservatory function room to experience good company, food, wine and MX-5 banter in abundance making a fine start to the festive period.

As usual, we'll have a secret Santa. If you wish to participate simply bring along a Ladies present if you're a lady or a Gents present if you're a gent. We normally look upon a value of around £5 - £7.50 as a guide.

If anyone would like to stay in the hotel either the night before or on the night of the event, a special room rate has been arranged for you. This is £60 for a double and £50 for a single room including breakfast. If you wish to take up this offer please phone the hotel direct and quote the reference: MX5FORD

Event Organisers: Maria and Jim

Excellent Christmas lunch we really enjoyed ourselves. Many thanks to Maria and Jim for organising it.

The end of another fantastic MX-5 year, now looking forward to even more fun in the 2013 season.

The Richmond Park Hotel did us proud, the meal was lovely and the room looked lovely all decorated. Many thanks to you all for coming and making the party so special.

We have enjoyed being ACs this year and that is thanks to YOU the members.

We hope Santa is good to you all and we hope to see you on the 6th of January.

Merry Christmas to one and all.

Superb weekend with the 'usual suspects', good food, good company, and the lodgings were absolutely wonderful...could not have had better hosts. Just a pity Chic and Heather were  giving their livers a rest (although that may just have been an excuse) :) It's not that long until Easter :)
