HARLEQUINS XMAS PARTY
“This years club champs are being held at Habberly Valley*. Afterwards (From 12:00 to 16:00 hrs) Wilden village hall is the venue for a get together. To exchange Christmas cards, have a chat, review your run and participate in our annual bring-and-win charity raffle**”
*Of course George means “Hartlebury Common” - and remember don't drive all the way to “Highgate Common” and then read the details properly and arrive late for the start as I once did.
**Previous prizes have included “A gourmet meal for two”, “A loaf of Russ's special*** Bread”, Wine, Chocolates, Other Nice Stuff.
***I think the special was to do with beer – but it was very very nice and if I win again this year I shall no doubt be choosing Russ's bread for my prize.
“The hall is located in the centre of Wilden next to the school close to the church. From the B4193 (Stourport to Hartlebury road) that runs along the northern side of the common, turn first left after the small island in stourport. After going under the railway bridge the Hall is on the right past the church. There is limited parking at the Hall but the majority will have to park on the roadside. Following this road will lead to Kidderminster, and the A449. Map Ref SO825723 (click here for a map)”
“Facilities available include warm heating, table and chairs tea and coffee and fizzy pop (Coke). Goodies to eat will have to be provided by you. Also you will need to bring a mug or beaker.”
George adds :
The Hall has a very nicely polished dance floor – it is used for Ballroom Classes. Please bring suitable shoes or thick warm socks. Definitely no spikes or muddy trainers or YOU will have to clean it afterwards!
