We’ve got a lot to catch up on
Just to confirm – the next PB gathering takes place at the Shooting Star on Friday April 8th from about 1830. We’ve returned to a Friday evening slot following requests from a number of people who say that will be more convenient.
It will be the third time we have used the pub, the Shooting Star, which is very close to Liverpool Street station.
Thanks again to the slim-line Fat Steve for making the arrangements.
If you’ve never been to one of these sessions then it really is worthwhile. It’s great fun just putting faces to names.
