Cancellation of Ladies Informal

Regrettably, our Ladies Informal planned for Saturday 30th June has had to be cancelled due to insufficient members having booked for the event.

This, unfortunately, has made the event financially unviable and therefore we have had to take this sad decision.

Allegiance Skittles Night 2018

A superb night was enjoyed by 43 members, families and friends at this year's Allegiance Skittles night on Friday 30 March at the Walsall Arms.

 

Once again the women beat the men by 308 to 306, so a close and well fought contest. The WM is pictured with the individual winners.

 

Also on the night our octogenarian, Tony Davis, celebrated his birthday pictured attempting to blow out the candles.


Special thanks should go to Steve and his boss Carol for organising the event.

 

The evening was a tremendous success which raised £280 to the Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. 

This is another donation for this year to charity the others being so far:

Warwickshire Masonic Benevolent Fund - £300

Birmingham Caring Hearts - £120.00
