EVERYONE IS WELCOME. Come on down to the club and have a drink with Mudeford SC and Christchurch SC
Saturday 29th October – 7pm – We are sadly low on spooky party goers for the event and the social witches would love to tempt more merrymakers out for the evening.
Now we do appreciate that it is a busy time for ghouls and vampires at the moment but where better to warm up for All Hallows Eve than at the club?!
Members, friends and extended family all welcome!
The social witches are itching to get casting their spells and weaving their magic and are warming their cauldrons as we speak - we don’t want to disappoint them after all, who knows what they may do …. muhahahahahahahahahaha
So, please let them know by SATURDAY 22nd if you will be able to make it
Bring a carved pumpkin, your spookiest fancy dress outfit and a plate of scary food and join in the dancing and games!
