  1. A free “ticket” (which there are no more) and surprisingly free) is now required all of a sudden for the dinner portion tomorrow for the All Saints Day Event . Something to add to the description for the event just in case folks from each society who are helping out including myself who was just informed of this now. Goes to really show how St J’s society is lacking and needs to change 🤷
