Dear Councillors,

Reminder - RSVP An alternate time is being considered in view of the meetings all ending at 18:30. If you have already responded, please ignore this email.

Ed Morris has very kindly arranged the traditional informal Council dinner in Helsinki at the Restaurant Suomenliinna Brewery for Tuesday June 28th. 2016.  Meet at 18:30 at the Helsinki Marketplace to catch the 18:40 ferry.

The restaurant is on Suomenlinna, an island in Helsinki that is a UNESCO world heritage site. ( http://www.suomenlinna.fi/en/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.suomenlinna.fi_en_&d=CwMFAw&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=gvEx8xF7ynrYQ7wShqEr-w&m=ORwRMQb_8PX5iZGs6rIYnDtpl0ZOxc79uZtcS7zSuT8&s=fVQbu3gpP0JjSHwywEpXoPxLpO6RWwJyygy2VIiw_go&e=> ) (Short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6bV6rbGVrc). This being Helsinki,  the last sitting at the restaurant is 19:00 with closing time being 22:00. The sun shall still be out, however, and Councillors will of course be welcome to further explore the island if they wish following the dinner.

We will get there by taking a ferry from the Helsinki Marketplace. It's about a 15 minute boat ride and costs a few euros: the same as any other form of Helsinki public transport. We should endeavour, if possible, to get the 18:40 ferry. There is a ferry every 20 minutes or so on the return so Councillors will have the option of returning as a group or individually. If we're not all there by 18:40 there is a19:00 ferry that should also be OK. Ed will arrange to repurchase the transportation tickets needed.

You can get an introduction to the restaurant, in English,  here: http://www.panimoravintola.fi/en/<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.panimoravintola.fi_en_&d=CwMFAw&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=gvEx8xF7ynrYQ7wShqEr-w&m=ORwRMQb_8PX5iZGs6rIYnDtpl0ZOxc79uZtcS7zSuT8&s=-ivs7zSmMNnHZBprjgnHheinjonNiR8jIa4DcIEihLQ&e=>.

We need an exact head count for Ed to complete the arrangements and settle the menu so could you please indicate whether you will attend no later than Friday, 20 May 2016.

Thank you very much.
Kind regards,
