The 2018 CTRAA summer party didn’t come with sun, unfortunately, but it was pleasantly warm anyhow, and there was no rain. Some 100 members attended.
Don’t miss our summer party in the vicar’s garden on Thursday 7 June. It may be our last in that wonderful garden, as the vicar is retiring in September and we don’t know if his successor will be as willing to lend us the garden.
At the 2017 AGM, the main news were a shop and restaurant discount scheme for all members and an increase of the membership fee, the first such increase for more than 10 years.
Da Maria, the little Neapolitan “trattoria” next door to the Gate Cinema in Notting Hill Gate, which has been run by the same family since 1980, is under threat. The owner of the property has applied for a merger of the cinema and the restaurant space, in order to make the cinema foyer larger.
Between 80 and 100 CTRAA members squeezed into Inverness Garden on Sunday 17 September, happy to experience yet another sunny party this year.
