The Kids Christmas party has come around again. On Saturday 15th December we will have Billy the children’s entertainer and Stephanie the face painter. Santa will be in the boat house again, same as usual, buy your children a present of no more than £10, wrap it up with their name on and Santa will give it to them.
As promised, I have organised a Christmas Bash at the Irby Mill, which is a great venue for good ‘scoff’ and real ale, on Saturday 22nd December 2018 (meeting at 7pm….food 8pm) The cost is actually £22.95, however, as it is a club event it is not unreasonable for us to charge £25pp with the excess going to club funds.
Numbers are strictly limited to the first 50 people, accordingly, this is really on a first come first serve basis. The menu is available and meals will have to be pre-booked (payment to The Major) this ensures a speedy service and works very well.
This years Branch 5 annual dinner, held at Birkenhead Park Rugby Club, was the best attended in many years. Over one hundred members, family and friends enjoyed a fantastic meal and a great evening of awards, raffle prises and entertainment, including an amazing set from the ‘Forty Thieves’ which had nearly everyone up and dancing until late.
The evening raised an estimated £1,500 for the club so a big thanks to Alan Jones, Vince Clegg, Dave Edwards and Robbie Edwards for organising such a memorable evening.
Vince has created a dvd of pictures from the evening which can be purchased from Dave or John behind the bar. These will cost £6 and will come with one or two 8x6in prints, all money going to the club funds.
