Thank you all those who attended the laying up I hope you enjoyed it. Special thank you to all those members who made it possible busy booking the venue, polishing trophies, engraving trophies, laying out trophies, setting up, selling tickets, informing, entertaining, packing up etc.

The raffle raised £80 and has now been donated to the autistic society a charity that supports families with relatives who have the condition. So well done to all those who bought tickets.
