    End of Season Rally 2017

    This year we are having an end of season rally at Titford Pumphouse, rather than a bonfire rally with fireworks.  There will (of course) be a real ale bar.

    We will again offer a Fish and Chip Supper before the AGM on the Friday evening.

    Live music on Saturday is from the Foregate Street Blues Band — the theme for the evening will be “The Blues” (with apologies to Villa and Baggies fans!!)

    There will be a DIY Barbecue on the Saturday.

    The entry form is on this link

    If you need more information, contact Dave Dent by email from this link or by phoning him on 07774 605336.
