Price:     £8

 The big pool at the Porchester Centre is reserved exclusively for IVC from 8.15 to 9.00 every Wednesday.   We get access to the changing rooms from 20.00 onwards. The pool is big so we get more freedom to swim around than in most pools.  From 8.30 there is an informal game of water polo in the deep end for those who want to join in.  Do not pay at the desk on entry but please pay our treasurer after swimming (because we have paid for a block booking).  After swimming we meet at a nearby pub (usually the Leinster Arms in Leinster Terrace).  Bayswater, Queensway and Royal Oak stations are nearby.

BECKENHAM & BROMLEY MYN PUB EVENING IN ELMERS END

The Elm Tree, 116 Croydon Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4DF (Click for Map)
How to find us:     In the Elm Tree pub

We hold two pub evenings a month on the first and third Wednesdays, with all the other Wednesdays being Zoom pub evenings. We normally have a monthly quiz on the last Wednesday of the month, during the Zoom evening, at about 9pm. We normally have a monthly quiz on the last Wednesday of the month, during the Zoom evening, at about 9pm, where a different member of our group prepares the questions to be used each month.

This means that tonight is an actual pub evening.

We are meeting at the Elm Tree pub in Elmers End. This is an Irish pub and is between Elmers End Green and Elmers End tram stop/South-Eastern railway station. Parking is free in the nearby side-streets and in the pub car-park. There are quite a few bus routes in the local vicinity. Most members will be eating here tonight and the meal prices and menu are typical for this type of pub.

Look for the IVC name on one of the tables. We usually try to sit towards the back of the pub on the right hand side, in the restaurant area.
