The evening will feature.....

  • A Skittles Evening
  • Food - Consisting of a choice of Sausages and Chips or Fish Goujons and Chips.Both will be served with Bread and Butter
  • A "Sticker Upper" so that we do not have to replace the few pins that we will have knocked over or return the balls, but can continue to have fun and consume multitudinous amounts of alcohol
  • And not forgetting - there will be prizes for the winners.

And all this for the inclusive cost of £7 per person. "What Fantastic Value"

Trevor will be phoning around to all our members to ask if they wish to participate.
If you do then: He will require payment in advance - Cheques payable to "T.Garfield" please.
