We are planning to hold a new year lunch sometime near the end of January ( when we’ve all got over Christmas and New Year) probably in a restaurant in the city centre. The day and date has  been arranged.  It will be held at the Brasshouse restaurant in Broad St (next to the canal and close to Symphony Hall), at 12.00 noon on Saturday 21st January 2012.  We want to increase our membership.  If you are interested in literature we would be happy to have you join us for the lunch.  Just turn up.
