We are pleased to announce that our MP, Dr Dan Poulter, will be at the Party on the 26th and will be giving a short speech of welcome at about 8pm. Other guests who have accepted our invitation include our County and District Councillors and representatives of More Than A Pub and Power to Change. We are also happy to announce that (to date) we have already received sponsorship ‘in kind’ for the event from Adnams, with more possible local supplier/sponsors in the pipeline.

If you have not bought yours yet, or want more for friends and family, there are still tickets, now on general release, available which can now be bought on demand at the Teapot Tearoom, Wickham Market. Alternatively, e-mail to book tickets for collection on, or before, the big night.

Tickets should also be available from the Teapot soup stall on The Hill at the Art Festival/Big Draw on Saturday 19th October.

Finally, we are looking for volunteers to help us on the night (setting out, manning the door, helping with the bar and food, etc.), so if you have an hour to spare during the evening we would love to hear from you, again on wmgeorge@btconnect.com.
