Christmas Party and Waddle details now available

Our invite to the Barnes Bridge Ladies Christmas Party has arrived and this year it will be held at Dukes Meadows Golf Club on Saturday 13th December from 7pm.

Price is 45 per person which includes a welcome drink, 
3 courses and half a bottle of wine. Plus dancing 'till late.

You need to rsvp to Orla or fill-in the Doodle poll by
1st December if you wish to attend. As always, partners are very welcome - the more the merrier.

Although not stated, the dress code is understood to be Black Tie like preceding years, so break out those dinner jackets and dicky-bows guys.

There will be a disco and of course the traditional Cygnet pre-party Waddle. This year the Waddle will take in the boathouse bar, Ye White Hart, Jolly Gardeners and The Ship before arriving at the venue promptly for 7pm with thirsts quenched (Waddle times TBC)

The Waddle comes with its own rules that I imagine Mr Pickford will circulate in due course.  In the meantime, get those tickets bought.  It's a great night for dancing, merriment and, for some, wife finding (just ask our VC).  

You know it makes sense..............

Would just like to clarify that the (current) VC did not 'find' his wife in a hedge outside a golf club. I cannot comment for my predecessors...

For the record, the VC "found" his wife in a hedge outside this very golf club and it all worked out rather splendidly.

By &quot;wife finding&quot;, I think that the Blogster means &quot;courting a Barnes Bridge Lady&quot;. Apologies for the vulgarity, they obviously do things differently in Orpington...<br /> <br /> Rules of the Waddle will be posted nearer the time (ie. when I can find them).
