Charity Race Night

Marchamley BBQ – Report & Pictures

We had an extremely successful gathering on 10th September, 2017 in Marchamley despite the short lived but heavy thunderstorms. Nearly 90 local people gathered in the marquee in the field adjoining Marchamley Club. We enjoyed tea and cake in the afternoon courtesy of the excellent cake makers in the area.

Children took part in a range of games including splat the rat, sack racing, an obstacle course and parachute games. They were rewarded with sweets and medals. The award ceremony was Olympics style with a podium where the children received their medals while the national anthem played and they received a round of applause.

We then relocated to Marchamley club later in the afternoon. Here, we enjoyed barbecued burgers and a delicious buffet supplied by local people who had all brought a plate to share. There was some great musical entertainment provided throughout the event. This was possible thanks to a generator supplying electricity outdoors.

Local people are really pulling together in organising regular events in Marchamley giving lots of their time and invaluable resources.

We are doing extremely well in fund-raising for renovations for Marchamley Club. At the BBQ we raised £156.07 which makes a total for fundraising during year of £981.17.

All welcome to the club AGM on Tuesday, 26th September at 7:30pm.
