We will be holding our 31st social event for members and friends of Virtual Norwood Forum at Lorenzo's Restaurant, 73 Westow Hill, Crystal Palace SE19 1TX, Telephone 020 8761 7485, Web www.lorenzo.uk.com on Tuesday 17th June 2008 at 7pm for 7.30pm

This special celebratory social event will include a pizza and a few drinks to mark the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Virtual Norwood.

As usual our invitation is open to everyone, members and their friends alike, and we would like as many people to come as possible. However because we are organising a sit down meal in a restaurant we need to confirm how many people are attending more accurately than our usual method of running an online poll. Therefore we will be taking a small deposit to confirm places at this event.

The deposits that we collect will be put towards a charitable donation to Crystal Palace Rotary Club. Our local Rotary Club is a registered charity that has supported local causes such as Demelza House, Emmaus, and the British Home at Crown Point, Christmas parties for the elderly in CP, plus the Stroke Association, Marie Curie and International Aid Relief. If we make a 'no strings attached' donation to the Rotary Club their charity committee can determine how best to allocate the funds for charitable purposes. The amount donated by VN on behalf of the guests attending will be 100% of the funds we receive after PayPal have deducted their handling fees (20p + 3.4% per transaction). We would suggest a minimum donation of 5 per person but if you would like to donate more that would be appreciated. If you have a PayPal account please send your payment to events@virtualnorwood.com. If you do not have an account please email me and I will send you an email back with a payment request which also includes the option for credit card and debit card payments. Please can you indicate how many people you would like to confirm a place for (real names will be helpful). Payment for your meal and drinks will be made directly between you and the restaurant on the night.

Please confirm your places at this event by Thursday 12th June at the latest. Confirming as soon as you can will help us to make our arrangements with the restaurant :)

I hope lots of people will be able to come to this event and help us to raise money for our local Rotary club.

The typos are cleverly inserted to draw out the lurkers ;)

By the way, if you are planning to come it might be a good idea to post a reply to this topic to say you are coming, to give a bit of feedback to everyone else that is considering coming too.

...or if you're not planning to come, like me - perhaps just knowing I won't be there is incentive enough to get you along... ;)

Have good one!

Thanks Uncle Wilf and Jannism. We'll certainly miss you on the night.

I've had a lot of promising interest in our anniversary event and several people have sent their deposits in already. Even though we are taking deposits to confirm attendance for this special event (which is going to charity) I thought it would be worth running a mini poll to help see how many people are interested. Please don't be put off by the deposits - it's necessary for this event so that we can get the restaurant seating correctly organised and all the proceeds are going to charity.

Oh, did I mention it's for charity? ;)
