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 alchol
  • 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.

Payment to be made by Friday 16th February at the latest
as he has to confirm numbers with the Coach House Etc.,

Refresh Your Computer
Some of your computers may not be refreshing correctly as we pass from 2017 to 2018
and are still showing the 2017 material
If you are one of these people then just observe, that at the top of the webpage is a little incomplete
circle with an arrow on the right hand side of the address window.
Just click on that and "Hey Presto" all will be fine. Repeat for each page if necessary

A Happy New Year to you all

Well that's Christmas and New Year done and dusted for 2017
Over the next few days, now that the brain is beginning to clear
from the hectic Christmas and New Years activities, I shall be
dragging this website kicking and screaming into the year 2018.

However I have one small problem.....
At the pre-Christmas drinks do at the Coach House Inn Locking,
someone came up to me and said

"I would like to sponsor the
website for the year 2018"

Well I was most appreciative and I think I went as far
as to buy this worthy person a drink.

Now here lies the problem....

Do you know for the life of me, I cannot remember
who on earth this person was.
In my defence, much whisky has flowed under the bridge since
the coach House, and I am still non the wiser.

So if this splendid person could get in touch with me
and let me know who you are, then I can feature you on the
website and write nice things about you
