Final 2019 report.

The 5 Mixed games we have had throughout the year have been such fun and I would like to thank everybody who made themselves available for the games, especially those sometimes being called in at the last moment.  These games have been played in the right spirit and we have made many new friends.

Everyone’s generosity has helped to raise a total of £349.29 for the Alzheimers Charity, which will be forwarded to them shortly.  My thanks to you all as we look forward to 2020.
