Join our summer reception

We hope you had a chance to get a good summer break. Walking around Cheapside this week it’s good to see lots more people out and about. Time to reconnect!

If you live or work in the Ward of Cheap we would like to invite to our annual summer party on Thursday 16 September from 17:00 – 18:30.

This year we hope to hold our reception in an outside garden, but if the English wheather decides otherwise we have an option to meet inside!

Please RSVP to Tijs Broeke and let us know if you want to bring a colleague.
