All Aboard for a Summer Party

Summer parties – what comes to mind? Maybe the river, boat parties, soothing music,

lazy evenings and a glass of something cool and refreshing? If that’s the case, then make

sure you put 31 July 2008 in your diary, as people working within the London Bridge

BID area are invited along to our summer bash to share a drink and enjoy the company

of your business neighbours.

Of course, when we say boat we don’t mean any old boat. HMS Belfast to be precise.

So keep the evening free and come aboard to soak up this unique setting as the sun

goes down.

The finer details, and how to register for the event, will be announced shortly

on
