Michael Howard in Putney on 14 October

Putney Conservatives are holding a drinks reception with The Rt Hon Michael Howard MP QC along with Justine Greening MP on Tuesday 14th October 2008 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.

There will be a discount to London South CF members and the ticket price is £20 (non CF is £35)

Here are some details from the organisers:
"The venue has a wonderful atmosphere with breathtaking views of Putney Bridge and the river Thames, full length balcony, glamourous decor, beautifully lit, highest quality service from elegant, polite Thai waitresses, award winning architecture. Authentic Thai venue with eight statues of Buddha fed and watered everyday as tradition dictates.
The reception is in a private area described by one reviewer as: 'a sultry and stunning space that marries modern simplicity with rich jewel-toned velvet couches and elaborate etched glass walls.'
The format is a full thai style finger buffet including dim sum, satays, duck spring roll, butterfly king prawns, thai fish cakes and vegetarian options together with a welcome thai cocktail, followed by high quality white and red wines and soft drinks.

Our guest Michael Howard MP has a special connection with Putney following the 2005 election when Justine Greening won the seat from Labour. Justine, currently Shadow Treasury Minister (widely tipped for promotion in an upcoming reshuffle) who has amongst other high profile campaigns spearheaded the fight against a third runway at Heathrow, will be speaking.

This event has a limited number of tickets and as such will be an intimate event."
