The Southern Group started its existence not long ago when five ex RADC members met in a local Curry Restaurant.
The word soon spread that this was a great evening to meet friends and enjoy their company in a hospitable environment whilst enjoying a curry and a pint.
The group continues to go from strength to strength and currently attracts between 30 and 50 attendees who travel great distances from places like Scarborough, Bristol and Australia to be amongst their colleagues. The group meets in the Everest Tandoori Restaurant, North Camp twice yearly usually around March and September.
The format for the evening is an informal curry buffet at around £20 per person with individuals being responsible for the purchase of their own drinks. It’s a great evening with numbers rapidly growing on each occasion.
