I realise it is only just October, but does anybody fancy getting together for a Christmas meal on Saturday, 20 December? I love roast turkey & Xmas pud, but don't always have it on Christmas Day.

Hi Juanita,

I'd love to come along! I've been meaning to go to a SE1 social for ages, I've been lurking on the forums since 2006!

20th is a bit too close to Christmas, so we'll be away, but thanks for organising.

Mark & I would also like to come, but again, the 20th is too close to Christmas for us - if the date moves earlier, please let us know !

If it is earlier, we could come too. On the 20th we'll be on holiday already.
