Reunion 2018 – Wigan

Bill Butlin has kindly stepped in to arrange our next Reunion event (60 years since the 89th Entry gathered at RAF Halton).  It will be held at the Wrightington Hotel and Country Club near Wigan on the weekend of 12-14 October.  This is a 4-star hotel, 2 minutes drive from Junction 27 of the M6. The hotel has extensive facilities, including a steam room, gymnasium and swimming pool.

The rate for a double/twin room is  £100.00 and for a single room it is £80. There will be a 3 course dinner at £32.50 per head, on the Saturday evening which includes coffee and mints.

Bookings should be made directly with the hotel on 01257 425803, mentioning the date of the event 12th to 14th October 2018 and the name, Bill Butlin. Bill has reserved 20 rooms which will be held until 30 days prior to the event, although the hotel doesn’t think that there will be a problem if more rooms are required.

The menu for the Saturday evening meal will be published in the Spring 2018 Newsletter. The hotel will need numbers for each menu requirement approximately 2 weeks prior to the event. Bill is planning to have a name card for each attendee showing each person’s menu choice to make sure that everyone is aware of what they have chosen and also to assist the servers. The meal will be held in a private room along with its own bar.

It is planned to have entertainment during the Saturday evening provided by David Marshall (see link to get a preview). An entertainment supplement will be required but the amount is dependent on the numbers attending the reunion.
