Many of you will have been with us this afternoon for our Annual Pre-Christmas Luncheon. 136 members sat down to enjoy a superb meal in the 1904 Lounge at the KCOM Stadium and nothing but praise has been heard. We also were delighted to welcome three special guests from the football club.  There was generous applause when our club Head Coach, Mike Phelan, entered the room and he was joined by the recently appointed Marketing & Communications Manager, Tom Rowell, along with Ann Holland, Supporter’s Liaison, who has filled the gap following the departure of James Mooney.

Following the sumptuous meal we had the raffle, which raised £361! Well done to Pete & Ernie for that one.  There were also two very testing quizzes from Pete Lincoln & Rob Milner which certainly challenged the grey cells

To all our members may you have a wonderful Christmas. We meet next for our New Year meeting in the Dug Out on January 5th. If you want to reserve a seat on the coach to the National Railway Museum please contact Barbara. The trip is on Thursday, 19th January and will cost just £8 (Members and guests alike). The Museum is free and also optional so if you want to do something else in York you can do.
