Eastbourne Newsletter – March 2018

Hello and welcome to our March newsletter!

We are looking forward to another busy couple of months following the success of our two March lunches.

We hope you are all looking forward to an early Easter this year and keep some room after all those lovely chocolate eggs for our ladies lunches. If you haven’t already done so, you could win some lovely Lindt chocolate eggs by entering our competition to guess how many eggs are in the jar, by visiting our Consortium Competition here. Hurry though as the Competition closes on Tuesday 3rd April at 9am!

We hope you enjoyed the sell out Brighton & Hove lunch on 13th March and the Eastbourne lunch on 23rd March. We’re looking forward to more exciting lunches throughout April and May, with our Worthing lunch at Casa Ciro on 11th April, our Brighton & Hove lunch at the Ginger Pig on 8th May and our Eastbourne lunch on 18th May – these are already selling out fast so please book soon to avoid disappointment!

If you would like to boost your business or personal profile, you can be added to our Membership Directory for as little as £20 plus VAT. There is still an opening for a Sponsor of our wonderful Tunbridge Wells lunch – this is a great opportunity to boost your business or your own personal profile.
