10th. REUNION NIGHT

 

The 10th. Anniversary of the Reunion Night was another successful night, we hope you agree.  Although, at 21.00 hours, we were a little bit concerned at the numbers, 50/60 maybe, but within an hour the hall was 'buzzing', with there being in excess of 3 figure numbers.  Many, many thanks to Len Gurney and Dave Phillips for their sterling work in taking so many photographs (see website).  Also, thanks to Dave for making a request on Facebook to donate prizes for the raffle on the night and a thank you to all the people who donated.  On the subject of the raffle, many thanks to May Hannah, who single-handedly went round selling the tickets and raised over £200.  After our expenses, we were able to present Steve Whitfield  with £130 to go towards McMillan Cancer Care Trust in memory of his wife Lorraine, who sadly passed away earlier this year, also congratulations to Steve for completing the Cycle Challenge from Manchester to Leeds (60 miles).

We would like to thank everyone who attended the Reunion Night and showed their generosity in donating to the raffle.  We would like to thank the Bar Staff for putting up with us again and to the Longmoor Social Club Committee and especially, John Birkett who took the time to come down to the Club and set up the PA system for us.
