Hi All,
You are cordially invited to the Westwoods running group Christmas meal on Saturday 4th Dec.
In previous years we have thoroughly enjoyed the "Room in...." restaurants in the city and are continuing the theme with "A Room In Leith" this year.
Their excellent xmas menu is a fixed price of £26.95. There are vegetarian options.
Additionally, in previous years many have opted for the Bring Your Own Wine option (£3).
Use this link to have a look at what's on the menu and to find out more about the restaurant.

Firstly though, e mail me to let me now if you can join us on the 4th, and
Vegetarians please also indicate in your RSVP if you're OK with the vegetarian option. If it's not to your liking, let me know as I can arrange something with the chef.
DEPOSIT: £10 per person to Brendan or Fiona in an envelope with your name on it! please. by your last class that falls on or before Saturday 30th October.
The restaurant is at the end of Dock Place - click link to see
Due to space restrictions we can only invite those who are currently signed up for a jog/run class or attend the Saturday morning sessions.
If you have any questions please contact me.
Looking forward to a fine feast in great company.
Hope to hear from you soon..............or see you for a run at WW soon
Brendan and Fiona

PS -After I've heard back from those of you who are coming, I'll e mail those runners much nearer the time requesting your menu choices (the resraurant want to know beforehand - for quicker service etc).
