"This will be a very busy evening with hot food served and also the launch of our 30th anniversary booklet, packed with photos and memories since the club was formed in 1987. We're hoping to have as many past members and committee members present on the night so please, spread the word.

"We cannot thank the Rohan's enough for agreeing to host this big event in our calendar.  It all kicks off at 7.30pm as usual so try and be there as early as possible because it will be a busy evening. Looking forward to seeing a big crowd there," say the organisers.
