Thank you Birdy!

On Sunday 15th August we paid tribute and thanked Eric Bird for over 25 years of service as our Bar Manager. John Evans and Nogger Hawkins selected sides and we hosted a Chairman versus President match. The day went brilliantly and we would like to thank the social committee for putting together the off field entertainment and food.

Eric would like to share his thanks with everyone. Below is a note passed to us from the great man himself.

“Hi Everyone, 

Birdy here, just a few words to say what a great day I had last Sunday. I trust that everyone who came enjoyed themselves, I certainly did.

I would like to thank you all for coming. Especially Nikki and the crew for the pig roast. Tom and the group for the music, Evo and Nogger for arranging the cricket and all you good folk for making it such a brilliant day. You won’t have seen the last of me yet and you never know you might even catch me behind the bar.So once again thanks for everything and “Yammas”

Best wishes
