Cold weather, hot food and good company – lovely cosy evening evening in front of a big fire…what’s not to like. Peter stretched the technical possibilities of local wi-fi connections to entertain us with his esoteric quiz and the raffle was as happily chaotic as ever – I came away with a chocolate hammer and chisel which could be very useful if you forget your lunch while you are out there – thanks again to all you lovely people who brought presents and then bought raffle tickets to win them back – All proceeds to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice who need it a lot more than we do of course.
PRACTICE MEET:- December 10th Larkhill Road, Dobcross (09:30 – 16:30)
SNOW STOPS PLAY!……still there’s all next year.
