A great end to 2016 and what’s on in 2017

A huge thanks to all who turned out for our end of year “Cold turkey” play day at Mannington. We had a great turnout, and a grand time was had by almost everyone – we’re not sure if the guys stuck in the ice-cold pond were having fun or not, but it looks like they were providing entertainment for those stood on dry land!

Here’s just a couple of the many photos from the day which are already up on our Facebook group:
