ANOTHER HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL SPORTSMAN’S NIGHT

The club held its 30th Annual Charity Sportsman’s Night on Thursday 7th March which was once again attended by just over 300 guests who listened to sporting reminiscences from Ex Snooker player and well known commentator John Virgo ably supported by comedian Jamie Sutherland.

Once again guests were very generous when supporting the raffle and the evening raised just over £9500 and was greatly enjoyed by all who attended.

THE CLUB PRESENTS NEW DISABLED CARRIAGE TO THE RIVERSIDE MINIATURE RAILWAY

 

The club recently presented the RMR with a new carriage which will enable wheelchair users and other disabled passengers to travel round the track seated in their wheelchairs accompanied by carers or family.

The club, together with St Neots Rotary Club each contributed £2000 which was matched by a District Grant of £4000 to enable the equipment to be purchased together with three guards vehicles which will enable a guard to be carried on every train.

The new equipment was put to extensive use over the Easter period which, thanks to the excellent weather, saw over 2000 children and adults enjoying rides around the 320 metre track.
