Autumn Afternoon Tea for Charity

Autumn Afternoon Tea
Tuesday, 20th September

We had a good turnout and an enjoyable Afternoon Tea, playing Chicago bridge in the Club and raising £150 for the local RNLI (Lifeboat Institute). 

The top raffle prize was won by Brian Hyman (some things don't change) and Vivien and John Klein won prizes for the highest score..


Thanks to everyone involved for making the event such a success, especially Sally, Wendy and the team of helpers.
