Thirsty Thursdays!

Due to staff holidays, we'll be moving this month's social to WEDNESDAY 19th June - wild, I know! 

Come down to the Block Café and help yourself to a beer or glass of wine!

A casual evening to shake off the stresses of the week (because Friday doesn't really count, right?).

A great way to relax and make new connections at the Block.
