I’m sure those of you who attended last year will confirm how good the annual children’s Christmas Party is which is run by the club’s Social Committee for our youngsters. The party is open to all junior members and their siblings who are in year 6 or below when they returned to school in September. If you would like your son / daughter to attend then please add their name as soon as is practically possible to the list on the main notice board in the cricket club and complete an envelope (available from behind the bar) at the same time as requested.
There is a cap on numbers so attendance is on a first come, first served basis.
There is a small charge of £5 for the party for members which includes a disco, party games, party tea and a fabulous present for all the good little boys and girls from Father Christmas who makes a special visit to the club just for the party.
Non members are also welcome to attend – please see the noticeboard in the club for information and associated costs.
