We are still looking for more help with the catering for the Veterans day at Thames Motor Yatch Club (nr Hampton Court Bridge) on Saturday 4th Sept. We will have around 200 people to provide for. Kit has all the shopping in hand but we need help on the day preparing the food, setting out the table and managing the buffet service.
During the day you get the chance to see some of the Dunkirk Little Ships that will take the veterans on a river trip, and the day ends with the lovely sun down service.
Any help would be great, if you cant do the whole day but can spare a couple of hours that’s fine – please contact Kit Greenleaves 07813 332096

Six of our members had a treat this weekend. A very special day out and all a bit of a secret as our rendevous point was within the private grounds of Windsor Castle. As a thank you from the ADLS for the ladies that helped with he catering at the Veterans Cruise last september. We had a day out on a Dunkirk Little Ship, though windsor and finishing with a picnic beside the Thames in the Castle grounds.
