We have not decided what video we will watch yet. Please provide ideas for the committee. The venue will be announced later.
Eighth Week - Friday 2nd December - BRING A MATHOM PARTY
Time to get rid of any useless odds and ends you may have lying around. We encourage those with mathoms from previous years to recycle them. Also bring food and drink for a proper Shire-style party.
