: How about renting a room at the Cabbage Patch

yes, that's a possibility... it has the advantage that everyone knows where it is :)

Joelle originally suggested The Orange Tree in Richmond, but that could be hard to get hold of on a weekend at such short notice, and it's likely to be pricey, and i've been told parking would probably be a problem

Karen came up with "the turks head in st, margarets has a hall to one side and quite a big garden. or have a big picnic in marble hill park?"

a picnic sounds good... tho we'd need to arrange an alternative meet in case of bad weather -- maybe we could have a picnic _and_ a later do? (The Crown is nearby, and it used to have a nice garden area)

The Fox in Church Street, Twickenham also has an upstairs room for hire

*** i guess we need to try and avoid days of major rugby events -- perhaps a Friday would be better?

: I don't know the costs though

i'm presuming cost won't be a problem (maybe in the low hundreds? tho isn't it sometimes tied to the amount that's spent at the bar?)

: let me know if there is anything I can do to help

can you check out details of the Cabbage Patch function rooms, and whether they're all booked up for September yet, and i'll do the same for The Fox... at least it'll give us an idea of how feasible it is at such short notice (partly my fault in taking a while to get into gear)

the feedback has been generally positive... but several of my contact email addresses were out of date -- i'll try doing some telephoning tomorrow -- so far about a dozen of us are definitely up for it
