It's going to be at the same venue as the last time, the Spectrum Leisure Centre, Willington (thanks to Ian Hirst for making the place available for us.)
Can I ask that you spread the word to any ex colleagues you are in touch with so we can renew friendships and have a good chinwag about times past. 

Look forward to seeing you there - hope you can make it.
