Dear Members


As you are no doubt aware, the NBN Christmas prize draw is currently running, with tickets on sale until Friday 20th December.


In response to the appeal that Roy has made us all aware of, we have decided to donate 50% of the ticket sales to this appeal in order to do our small bit to help ease the serious problems that those affected by the floods have to face.

Quick question....


When I win.......


Could the prize be passed on to another member......


Sort of, for services rendered....





No problem at all passing on a prize. Once you have won it, it's yours to do with as you see fit. Some of the prizes will be posted directly to the winner by whoever donated them, so we'd need an address, and in the case of the Coldham Hall voucher, the name that any table reservation would be made in. Other than that, feel free!

Hi Geoff, not a bad idea!

To ensure everything is above board, I am going to get my two sons (under extreme duress!) to do the draw and video it, which will then be posted. However, there's no reason at all why I couldn't also be in chat at the same time.

I am up planning to do the draw late Monday afternoon, about 4:30, but I'll get an announcement put up on Monday morning to confirm it on Monday morning.
