    2014 Christmas Do - 13th December - Lemington Spa

    Yeah I know, I know it's only June. However as we have members far and wide we thought we'd post up this years do and get some ideas for this years location.

    What we know so far - Date 13th December.

    Ideas for location that we've had suggested so far are as follows

    Amsterdam
    Ireland - Nobber to be precise
    Derby
    Dubai
    Basingstoke
    Fleet
    Oxford

    Please get your suggestions in that way we can secure something early and get cheap hotels etc.

    Hmm last years was central as was the first one.... Abingdon pretty much smack bang in the middle and people made it from way oop North and only a few from the Midlands and South
    The one in Kingswinford again fairly central and attended by people from way down South and not all of the midland contingent and I don't think any northerners made it.



    Where exactly are people classing as Central????

    On a serious note ide say any where in-between Nottingham and Northampton what do you guys and gals do tho is it just a night in the toby carvery etc or do you all go out in the city centre afterwards iirc that was highlighted with the first Christmas due as the hotel wasn't near anything us northerners like our fill so do the welsh and the odd brummy.
