Saturday 7th July – BBQ and The Daisy Bowlers
A message from The Commodore…
There will be a late afternoon BBQ followed by a live band and, after much research, we were strongly recommended to book “The Daisy Bowlers” (Google them) and they have kindly agreed to come and play for us in the evening. The cost will be £12.50 for adults and £6.00 for under 14’s  Please email me with your numbers ASAP but no later than this Friday – 22nd June as we have a max we can cater for space and food wise.  Once we have received your booking we will send you confirmation and give you payment advice.  Please do your best to support club events as they provide much needed revenue so that we can continue to improve and maintain our lovely facilities.  So please, email The Commodore ASAP (see theweekahead email for his address) to reserve your place and support your club ! Please feel free to bring friends along.
