Booking form


As tea / coffee and biscuits will be provided at the start and break, it would be very helpful to know how many people are intending to attend. There are 96 places, and pre-paid booking will guarantee you a place. Preferably, please send in the application form below to Kathleen Merino, along with payment by Friday 6th June to secure you a definite place; otherwise send an email with the information to her, but be aware that you will only get a place after those who have paid in advance. We will publish numbers attending on the home page of the website so that you know how full we are getting!

PLEASE NOTE: To cut down costs and administration time, (as ALL London is run by volunteers) we won’t send confirmation unless you particularly ask for it... assume you have a place if you have paid unless you hear otherwise! If you need any more information please ask. Thanks.

Application Form

To: Mrs Kathleen Merino, 11 Tavistock Road, Edgware, HA8 6DF

OR, if desperate to secure a place and no time now to send form, email info to her, and ensure payment reaches us before 6th June.
