Dai,
like i said in a previous post that i sent out unfortunately the white Ensign is a private members club so the answer is no we can't stop any of their members whishing to come in. however i have been informed that they would put up a poster saying that a private function is going on  friday and Saturday normally members do keep away but you are always going to get one or two will stick there head in the door to see what's going on.

like i have said i don't see this being a problem if any of them would like to join in the quiz night for "an example they couldn't play for the Richie Liggins Memorial" as that would only be for us forum members. 

it's not the ideal situation for us as over the many weeks i have contacted many hotels while also dealing with my late brothers funeral arrangements and his estate. i had even contacted  the university but due to are numbers and accommodation requirements nothing at the moment can cater for us. my main objective was to keep the JBO alive so it seems we will have to use what we can until something better comes along which no doubt it will "we need something like the Gipsy Hill Hotel so we can all be housed under same roof" i know the Gipsy was getting tired but it served us well under the circumstances "so i think we were spoilt" with them letting  us do what we wanted and when.

Thanks Spud, I only asked the question to confirm what I guessed would be the answer, I would be happy the White Ensign as a venue as they have welcomed us in the past and it would be easy to stagger across the road the White Hart.
