10/12/2010 - PRESENTATION EVENING - A HUGE POSITIVE IN TOUGH SEASON
Shenley Church End CC held a very successful 2010 Presentation Evening on the back of an up and down season. As in every November, many of the club's members, wives and girlfriends turned out to celebrate another cricket campaign under their belts, held at the Old Red Lion pub in Great Brickhill on Friday 26th November.
A truly brilliant evening saw over 30 members, wives, girlfriends and associates celebrate the 2010 season, despite the mixed performances. The club were also pleased to announce they raised over £300 in the club's yearly Raffle, £260 of which was raised onm the evening itself!
(l-r) Simon Pugh, Jay Fletcher, Anton De Beer and Kieran Burke
This reflected some of the great prizes donated by members and others - many thanks to those who provided the goods. Ian Morley's generous donation of shaving/men's grooming products was a big plus, and a £50 voucher for the "Living Room" in MK also pushed the values up.
