Last Social Of The Season

Doesn’t time fly, it doesn’t seem 5 minutes since we had our first DCDSC social back in September last year.

Next Monday April 2nd sees the last DCDSC social for this season, we haven’t got definite guests booked, but we do have one or two guests (including an ex player or two) coming down for a meet and mingle fuddle.

The evening starts around 8.00pm with doors opening at 7.30pm. Please note that there is a committee meeting prior to the social so we would ask members not to arrive before 7.30pm

I look forward to seeing you there, we will have renewal/application forms available on the night so you can book your membership early for next season.

We have already started to book guests for next season and visits from Tommy Johnson and Roy Macfarland in the diary. Our socials are members only so make sure you renew or join.

So see you on Monday April 2nd – don’t forget it is a fuddle so bring something to share 🙂

Big thanks to all those that came to our March social, we had a great night with Phil Matthews, Gareth Davies and a quick visit from Derby County legend Nigel Callaghan.

Cally was great, he has said that he would like to come down and spend a little more time with us. So hopefully we’ll be able to set that up sometime next season.

(Here’s a pic of Gareth, Phil & Cally).

Phil and Gareth have just completed the book they talked to us on the night. About on the local rivalry between Derby and Forest, they were due to complete it the day after the postponed Forest match, so this had to put back a little until that epic match that saw Jake (He’s the Man) Buxton score the winner and for the first time in 40 years Derby did the double over Forest. What a great night, it was tinged with a little tragedy though, when Shaun Barker was injured and it looks like he will be out of action for the next 12 months. We wish him well and we’ll see if we could get him down to visit us one night – what do you think, would you like that? (post a comment below).

I just want to add a quick note of thanks to the Ladies that visited us from Age UK too. They talked with our members on various topics including, how to keep you bills down, staying warm, getting jobs around the house done.

If you have any concerns and your not sure who to contact give Age UK Derby a call, I’m sure they will be able to help, if not (as the advert used to say), they’ll know a man (or woman) who can 🙂
