P&DEMGC Dinner & Awards Evening 5th Jan 2019

Club Annual Dinner and Award evening

Ladies & Gentlemen,
This year we have decided to move the date and venue of the Dinner and Awards evening
We have moved both up-market and from December to January. It was felt that there is an awful lot of ‘competing events’ in December,
and by moving to January we can have a more relaxed evening. It also means we have more choice with regard to the venue.
The price this year has gone up slightly to £27.50
Venue – Hallmark Hotel, Leyland Way, Leyland. PR25 4JX
Date – Saturday 5th January 2019
Time – 19.00 hrs arrival for commencing to eat at 19.30 hrs

Barry Wilson Club Member .

Hi All.

Barry Wilson has been working on the committee organizing the Lancashire Lanes Run   , and I have just found out yesterday that he has suffered a heart attack and has been in hospital recovering.  This must have been quite a  scare for him and his family but thankfully he is now home and on the road to recovery but he is  unable to drive for the next few weeks. So on behalf of our club members we send him and his family our best wishes  for a speedy recovery . Take care Barry hope to see you soon.

Lancashire Lanes Run 19th August 2018

Hi All.

Just a reminder to  the club Lancashire Lanes Run is on the 19th August 2018 . It will start & finish at Park Hall Hotel & Leisure Club , with a choice of two routes of 45 & 75 miles. The entry form can be printed off from the clubs website.  If you are going to take part the Closing date for Entries is the 9th August 2018. I know there is still a few weeks to go before then, but time does have a habit of moving on very quickly, and I would hate for you to miss booking your place.

Best regards Neil.
