    Sayonara Party 25th June, 19:30hrs, White Swan's Stoneaged (http://thewhiteswanhotel.com/).
    This years Sayanara party was a huge success with masses of lovely food (we all ate too much of the tapas thinking that was the meal and then they asked us to order the main course! ) served in a unique way and all in a pleasant dining atmosphere where people could circulate and talk to everyone. The attentive staff were so helpful and helped make the evening. Places are limited to 35-40 people so please arrive early to get a table. Payment on the night and per table.

    There are some lovely hotels and B&B but book early as they go very quickly. You may like to book somewhere in Stratford-upon-Avon for sight seeing and get a taxi to the venue!

      We currently have about 14 confirmed people attending the Sayonara Party at the excellent Stone Aged restaurant. We have a capacity of 40. If you'd like to attend just send me your name and I'll secure you a place. If you name's not down on the list on the night, you ain't coming in! These are always fun gatherings especially after Oshita sensei et al. have had a few drinks!
