A huge thank you to everyone who came to the Christmas get together last night. It was great to see you all and hopefully it was an enjoyable evening.

Special thanks go to Frances and her army of cooks who produced some delightful canapes, all the juniors who did a cracking job moonlighting as waiters, Andy for presenting the awards, Lynn for decorating the room and making the certificates, Rodney for leading the singing, our host Dave and Mandy at FSC and everyone else who did something to help that I’ve forgotten to mention.

The raffles looks like it made a healthy amount for the club funds so a big thank you as well to everyone who brought a ticket.

We have trophies and certificates for people who weren’t there – I’ll send out a full list of the awards over the weekend when I’ve got a bit more time on my hands.

Thanks again,


 On behalf of the committee
