Xmas Party Information

It may only be July but the Striders Christmas party has been provisionally booked and is open for booking. If you have not received the email from Edna Wood, please see information below……

To all the Runners, Dancers and Gamblers amongst you
I know it’s a bit early but thinking ahead, the Striders Christmas Party has been arranged for the night of Saturday 10 December 2016 at The Old Swan Hotel for 60-70 people.

We have booked on The Great Gatsby Revue night of entertainment which includes a drink on arrival, Gatsby’s Casino, a three-course dinner, entertainment and a DJ (1920s fancy dress optional). The cost is £30 each and payment should be made by cash, a cheque made payable to Knaresborough Striders or by BACS using sort code 40­-26-20, account no 11295985 using Xmas as the reference. A DEPOSIT OF £10 PER PERSON IS REQUIRED WHEN BOOKING.

A bed and breakfast voucher has also been supplied by the hotel to raffle off, but they can’t confirm that this will be for the night itself, or for an alternative date, until nearer the party night.

Please reply to this email (email edswood@talktalk.net) with details of your menu choice (including any dietary requirements) and, if bringing a guest, their name and menu choice. Also let me know your method of payment for your £10 per person deposit. Please give cash or cheques to any of the Committee Members.

The menu choice is as follows:-

Roast Carrot and Ginger Soup, sesame croute
Coarse Chicken Liver and Port Pate, apple compote, sage scone
Crab and Prawn Tian, tomato and tarragon sauce, chilli crostini
Prune and Orange Roast Turkey, pancetta-wrapped chipolata, apricot and thyme stuffing, pan gravy

Chocolate and Mandarin Cheesecake, Cointreau crème anglaise, chocolate shard

There is discount on pre-ordered sparkling and house wine and bottled beers. All drinks offers must be ordered direct with the hotel and paid for prior to the party night.

There is a special rate of £48.00 per person based on two people sharing a double or twin and £65.00 per person in a single.

Thanks, Edna
