On the first day of Christmas, the Bowmen gave to me…
… frolics at the MB parteeeeeee!
Folks, don’t forget that this Saturday (11th) heralds the MB Festive Frolics, from 8:00 at the club (there’s an invite attached below). We’ll strut the night away to Swingology, and have a hearty feast of food and drink too. If you’re planning on coming along, please let Sue know. We’d also be ever so grateful if you’d bring some scran as a contribution – even if you just roll through the door with a packet of cheesy Wotsits it’ll be much appreciated (and I for one’ll be a happy girl…)
On the second day of Christmas the Bowmen gave to me, free cash in the MB kitty…
Last minute Christmas shoppers ahoy… If you sign up for EasyFundraising (via http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/mbltc), 15% of the total value of your purchase is donated to the MB. For nada. Nottin’. Just sitting on yer er5e and clicking ‘click’. So, if you’re buying from any of 200 stores and websites, including Amazon, Argos, M&S, eBay and John Lewis, they’ll chuck back 15% of your prezzie price into the MB pot. Please tell your friends, family and any other shopaholics you know too, and we’ll be building a superbowl stylee stadium and six lane motorway access through the Seffy Park lake before you know it. Happy shopping! As if you needed an excuse 😉
On the third day of Christmas the Bowmen gave to me, croquet in a style com-e-dy*
Scratch this in your brand shiny new 2011 diary… A day of mulled wine, Scouse, chilli, croquet and fresh air to blow the new year cobwebs away. It’ll be on Sunday 2nd January from around 11am, running into candle-lit (and quite possibly double-vision handicapped) croquet by the end of the day, as James has invented a croquet hook candlestick holder doncha know – which will be tastefully packaged and available for sale soon from JML, Wilkinsons and selected branches of the Asda soon. Or maybe not. But one way or t’other, it’ll be a day with a difference, lots of fun, plenty of warming wine and absolutely no expectation of technical ability or finesse (*although I mentioned ‘comedy croquet’ to James, which was apparently a bad choice of words. He’s rather good at it.) So, gather friends and family and bring them down for a bit of a do. We’re also working on a ‘crazy croquet’ brand, complete with ornamental windmills, for future play……… All will be revealed in good time.
