Saturday saw 60 members, friends and guests turn up at the Malshanger Club for a visit by the popular Freddie Clarke band. Locally based, this was their fifth visit to the Cub but the majority of those attending were not members on the last visit in 2018. The band, however, lived up to their reputation entertaining us with a wide range of numbers from the 60s and 70s, all of which seemed to be well remembered by most of those present! Half way through the evening, we enjoyed an excellent ploughman's supper, organised by the cheeky chef Ric and his Social Committee before once again carrying on with the dancing. At the conclusion of the evening, President Martin thanked Ric and the Social Committee for all the work in organising another successful event, John Yarrall for giving up his evening to .keep us watered and Kay for organising the Raffle. We now look forward to see what the Social Committee will come up with for our next event.
