Many thanks to Anne Burbidge and Liz Elliot for all their hard work planning and organising a great Club Chase at Hawse End - finding somewhere as luxurious for next year's assembly venue is going to be a real challenge!
Further thanks to Catherine Wetherfield for organsing another fun evening of food, prizes and games at the Club Social!
Don't forget to have a go at this year's "Beer Trail" which will remain open until mid-January. Many thanks to Pete and Barbara Nelson for planning and keeping the cache stocked once again!
