Bring on the customers
Ready for the customers to arrive

The Group were again invited to set up a stall in St Andrews Church Hall on the Saturday of Worcester's Victorian Fair.
As ever, the fair was very popular and the St Andrews venue well attended, particularly as the Church members provide excellent, but very economically priced, refreshments.

November 2008 Christmas Party

Me and My Bear And What's His Name?

Building on the success of last year, our Christmas Party was again a great success. Great Company. Great Food. Great Music. Great Dancing.
The Village Hall at Whittington is large enough to allow line dancing and similar activities and Poppa J provided a very popular choice of music before, during and after line dancing.
If you didn't come along, you missed a treat. Make a date for next year!! Another £534 was added to the group funds. And this is a social event not a fund raiser! (photos Irene & John Lacy)

Cheers The dancing commences
Cheers !! Getting into the spirit

October 2008 A Galloping Success

To say that the Group's Race Night was a galloping success would be to understate matters. It was well attended and raised a whopping £1006.20! Thank you to all those who attended, including those who "attended in absentia".
The Race Night was held at the Blue Bell Inn in Ryall and the Landlord (Ian O'Neill) did us proud with an equally successful buffet supper. (photos John Lacy)

What shall we do for this race then
Thinking what to back ...
