Pre-Xmas Xmas Meal

(Message from Hinch)

Good evening all.

Christmas meal after Percy Pud , we are returning to the Wortley Arms after last years successful meal. The meal is £27.50 per head for 3 course plus coffee and mince pies. We are limited to 50 places so this is strictly first come first served. I will require a £10 deposit to secure your place and the balance paid in full two weeks prior to us going. The children’s menu will be half portion of the adults at half price. Anyone interested in going I will forward the menu on for pre order.

Cheers

Hinch

Hiya     

Could you please remind your members that the Steel City Striders “Percy Pud 10k” online entry starts on Sunday at 5pm. Race Director Richard Dunk asks that all entrants are patient as a online queuing system is used. With the race selling out last year in under 3hrs he has after consultations been able to increase the number of runners by 100 too 3,000. This year all finishers will receive a large luxury Christmas Pudding and a Packet of Custard!!. Also special for this year, a Runners Lightweight Soft Touch Fluo Yellow Beenie Hat with the Percy Pud logo embroided on the front.
