Welcome to our Annual Christmas Lunch.

Join us and experience great company, food, wine and MX-5 banter in abundance making a fine start to the festive season. We'll have our own private function suite for the day so will have plenty of time to enjoy the party atmosphere.

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 on the night of the event, a special room rate has been arranged with the hotel. This is £80 for a double including breakfast and £55 for a single room. If you wish to take up this offer please phone the hotel direct and quote the MX-5 car club to get the reduced room prices. The contact on reception is Ann and she can be contacted on 01698 791111.

NOTE: The Christmas meal is £24.95 per head which should be paid in full to Maria Ford or Alison Ness by the 1st of November.

Event Organisers: Jim and Drew
