    Happy to amend if people think it's in bad taste.

    Just thought it might get some interest going.

    Mea culpa.

  • Having just moved to Greenhithe I may well come down for this.
  • Crickey , that woke me up!
  • Phew ! Thanks, Lads.

    Thought I'd blown this one....
  • Why the change of venue Fanny ?
  • Why the change of venue Fanny ?

    We are always aware of the fact that NWKA ( rebranded from the original NWK CASC , and originally from, I believe Gravesend CASC) "covers" the Gravesend as well as the Dartford area, and surrounding villages.

    Whilst Bexley Park Sports & Social Club , very close to the A2 , is the usual choice of venue, members (and Gravesend based c'tee members) have indicated that we should not forget their needs...and for those without transport, BSSC is difficult to reach from Gravesend by bus/train.

    We have staged events in that area before, using The Manor Hotel, Singlewell for several Q & As , notably when we welcomed Curbs but the cost of this venue is now prohibitive.

    So, having been offered The Pavilion at a very good rate, we decided to try once more to attract our friends from that area. Kent CC supporters will remember that the county used to play at the Bat & Ball Ground some years ago so it will be good to revisit an old haunt.

    We are hopeful of a good turn out as future consideration to organising events in the area may be affected so please try to give us, Derek & Peter your support. Thanks.

    Something I omitted earlier was that all profits from NWKA events this season will be donated to Demelza House.

    OK, RCT.

    Wasn't going to change it anyway !!

  • Not just a bump.....but important news for those thinking of coming along.

    Entry to this event is now free ! It has been decided that on this occasion, NWKA welcome all Addicks free of charge - although we hope you will buy a couple of books of raffle tkts each if you decide to join us !

    Ingress Park I hope?

  • Look forward to meeting you, DA9
  • Would love to be there Fanny but just can't get there (not driving any more). Remember the Bat and Ball well from my schooldays when us Tech. boys used to tackle an assault course of walls and outbuildings behind the pub to bunk into the ground and watch County games for free. Happy days. Have a great night.

    Close , Smugglers. I can tell you one thing it's a lot quieter than south London.
  • Bump

    Does the event kick off bang on 8 Fanny ?
  • BUMP !

    Weather & icy conditions permitting , this event will take place as originally advertised with Derek & Peter as our guests. Should there be any problems or amendments to the evening, details will be posted on here and if possible , on the OS.

    Please endeavour to join us for what should be an entertaining evening with free entry to all.

    Buckshee - apologies for not seeing your post earlier, but yes, the meeting is due to start promptly at 8pm. Hope to see you there.

    As always, just ask for Fanny.....
  • *****IMPORTANT NEWS *******

    Tonight's meeting has now been re confirmed following the thaw and Derek will be in full flow at The Pavilion tonight from 8pm.

    Unfortunately, Peter Shaw has had to bow out due to illness and we wish him well in his recovery.

    The good news is that Valley favourite, Phil Warman has agreed to take his place even though he is recovering from an operation on his drinking hand....seriously !

    Phil was known as the comedian of the early 70's team so, together with Killer's legendary humour, we should be in for a highly entertaining evening.

    I look forward to meeting up with other Lifers tonight at this very special event .

    Let's be 'avin you !!!!
  • We'll get there at just after half seven then to get signed up. Looking forward to it.
  • Great, buckshee ! See you there.
  • Hope to see you there (if I can find it). Can't miss the opportunity to see two of my all time favourites!
