Club Christmas Party - Saturday 3rd December: 7pm until late
If you go to one Christmas party this year, might as well do it in style and make it this one.  It is always good fun, sometimes a drink or two might be consumed to get in the Christmas spirit.  There will be music, dancing, good food and winter warmth on offer (if we get the gas fire fixed in time!).  Tickets are just £10, which includes your food and a glass of Wulled Mine.   As ever, it's volunteers who bring you these events, so Rob is looking for some contributors to help with the catering.  If anyone is willing to bring a dish of christmas delight then have a chat with him after at the club or email him  The costs of ingredients will be reimbursed.
