FULL BOOKING INFORMATION IS ON THE BOOKING FORM

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.
