REUNION: The labels were completed as far as possible.
YW, VW, JB and JS will check people in by ticking them off on the list, giving them a lunch token if they have paid for lunch and directing them to their name label. AAL will find 5 other helpers so that two can check in and one deal with labels at three tables. AF will do large signs denoting the letters of the alphabet dealt with at each table. AAL will find a steward to guide people to the correct table and will endeavour to obtain three sign stands for this.
All checking in to be done in the Crush Hall.
This leaves space on the floor of the Assembly Hall for selling souvenirs.
Lunch - Jeremy [CENSORED: surname] advises a rolling buffet rather than two sittings. Ladies will collect main course, dessert and cutlery at the same time, having handed over their lunch token. AAL will make these. Some tables will be reserved for older ladies, guests and staff should they want them, and help will be on hand for the carrying of trays to the table, where needed. Stewards will be needed in the dining hall to encourage people to vacate their seats quickly.
TEA PARTY: This is sold out but it was felt that, if C & L do not mind the extra cost, we should ask them for an overflow room upstairs.
