Tuesday 1st August 2017 from 12 noon : A Get-together for BCAL Reservations and CRC staff
Was held at Ye Olde Six Bells in Horley and all with associations with Res and CRC are welcome.
My thanks to Janet Willis for organising this gathering

Friday 25th August - Beach Boys......with a BCal Twist
Laurie Price has been working away in the background with Richard Heywood and they have been in contact with the Beach Boys Tribute Band who will soon be performing in Horsham at the Capitol Theatre. The aim is that the Band will include the Caledonian Girls song as part of their evening to a back drop of BCal images and hopefully with some Caledonian hostesses in attendance too.  Laurie has furnished the band with the lyrics to the famous BCal adverts. Details are still being finalised, but it is looking to be a good evening. Tickets are limited, hence publishing it now, and tickets can be obtained from the Capitol Box Office  I am sure we will get more from Laurie and Richard, but here is the chance for a good night out and some BCal live too.
