Beer Festival 2nd and 3rd May

A reminder that this Bank Holiday weekend the club is hosting the Ross Beer and Cider Festival. 

Pam Ball is appealing for more cakes to sell so if you can bake a cake please let Pam know and bring it to the club either Friday evening or sometime over the weekend.

Torsten has appealed for help in the final setting up of the tents on Friday evening from about 5.30pm. So if you can spare a bit of time please come down and help Torsten with this big job – many hands really will make light work
