The 5-course menu included a pigeon dish to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the discovery of spa waters in Cheltenham, alongside some of the Cafe’s other special dishes. Guests were also treated to a reading of a dramatic interlude entitled The Spirit of Cheltenham, first performed at the Tercentenary Civic Dinner at Pittville Pump Room on 3 November. Friends of Pittville are the East India Cafe’s local charity and at the end of the meal the owners presented the Chairman of the Friends with a cheque for £175 as a donation towards our funds.

Charity Christmas cards are now appearing in the shops, so here are ours.

If you’re a regular supporter we hope you’ll buy again, even though the designs are the same as last year. If you bought cards from us last year, we’re offering a 25 per cent discount this year. If you haven’t bought from us before we hope you like them, and will pay the full price!

We have offered cards since 2010 but times (and postage costs) are changing and fewer people are buying. So these will be our last ones.

Please download the order form here, then return the completed form to our Secretary Fiona Clarke, by e-mail or through her letter box.
