This year's reunion will be held earlier so that we can work around the refurbishments to The Falcon Hotel, Stratford upon Avon - from Friday 2nd to Monday 5th June.

We ensure everyone is introduced around and those who come for the first time always remark how welcoming and friendly we all are. So please do come along if you can and meet some more of your Java Club Family!

Friends and family are always welcome to attend the weekend, so if you are unable to make the journey alone, please feel free to invite someone along who can bring you - and don't forget the Central Welfare Fund reunion grant is available to a FEPOW and wife, or widow, plus a carer. There is also the CWF travel grant of up to 50 available to help with the costs, but please remember this grant is for one trip per year.

Our rates have been increased slightly, by just 8 per person (less than 4% for the weekend) and the single supplement remains only 10 per night. This includes bed, breakfast and evening meals, a pre-dinner drink and a glass of wine for our Saturday gala dinner and tea & coffee for our AGM meeting. This now also includes a sandwich lunch after our AGM meeting on the Saturday, which solves a problem we had last year and just goes to show how The Falcon are eager to help with any issues we encounter!

Please remember that the number of rooms available will be limited due to the refurbishments, SO DO PLEASE GET BOOKED IN EARLY! There is no deposit to pay and no charge for cancellations advised more than 24 hours before arrival - so you have nothing to lose by reserving your room NOW - PLEASE DO!!!

Saturday Night Dinner Only - if you are not staying at the hotel but wish to join us for the Saturday night dinner only, you will need to pay the 27.50 (includes a pre-dinner drink and glass of wine with the 3 course meal) in advance and provide contact details so that you can pre-order your meal choice nearer the time. Those of you staying at the hotel do not need to prepay for the meal as it is included in your package and you will be asked your Saturday night dinner food requirement upon check in.

You can book by telephone directly to the hotel on 01789 279953 and speak to Mary, or Please ensure you quote our Club's booking reservation number 65688. Or you can click here to download the 2017 AGM & Reunion booking form
