Summer Socials

Following today’s meeting our local nightclub Jesters opened on a Tuesday in a special one time event just for SOWN. Whilst SOWN had exclusive access to Jesters for the first half an hour some medics who had also purportedly also booked the club turned up just after 11. Oh well it would be wrong to keep a good thing all for yourself. As a result we even created a face book group.
