The 2018 Reunion Weekend


we are being welcomed for our AGM and reunion weekend by Jason Mayglothling (ex Manager of The Falcon Stratford upon Avon and great friend of the Club) who is now Manager at the Bank House Hotel, Bransford, just outside Worcester. Jason knows just what we like and I'm sure his new hotel will look after us admirably! The web site is 19th to 22nd JULY 2019.

The weekend closest to that discussed which he can accommodate us fully is Friday 19th to Monday 22nd July 2019.

The added bonus is that he is honouring The Falcon's prices we agreed 2 years ago, and it is less that we had to pay at the Shakespeare last year!

Please note that the rates below include Room, Breakfast, ALL Evening Meals (including our Saturday Gala Dinner with a glass of wine before and during dinner), free parking, use of the hotel's extensive facilities (including spa) and also the post AGM lunch buffet.

For a double or twin room the rate is 142 per person for 1 night, 214 per person for 2 nights and 267 per person for 3 nights, and the single supplement is just 20 per person per night. If you are local and joining us for dinner on the Saturday evening, the charge will be 37.50 (again including a glass of wine before and after dinner).

Your room includes full use of the spa facilities - indoor pool, sauna, steam room, spa bath and 'experience' shower (whatever that is!) and treatments are available at additional cost. Please book spa treatments in advance directly on 01886 834834. The golf course is available at a reduced green fee of 17.50 per person. To pre-book please contact the golf club directly on 01886 833621.


Being a smaller hotel they can only reserve 30 rooms for us, so if you are even remotely interested PLEASE BOOK NOW to guarantee that there will be enough space. You will not be charged a deposit, nor for cancellations more than 24 hours before arrival, so you have nothing to lose!

Please remember friends and family are very welcome to join us, so if you have any doubts of how you will get there just invite someone to bring you. They can stay or if you require no care during the weekend just drop you off, whichever they choose - either way they will be effusively embraced into our Java Club Family!

There will be the Central Welfare Fund Reunion Grant available to all FEPOWs, wives, widows and carers - currently 50 per night for each of you, plus 50 towards travel - but remember this is for one reunion each year.

The weekend involves the group dinner on the Friday evening. Breakfast and our AGM meeting on the Saturday morning, followed by a sandwich lunch. The Gala Dinner on Saturday night with entertainment. Breakfast, then a Remembrance Service on the Sunday morning and a group dinner on Sunday night. Then breakfast before departing on the Monday morning. Further details of arrangements we have made will be in the next newsletter.
