Club Report: Sunday 24th December 2017

Well, twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Mainly because we were all watching Die Hard and eating Quality Street.

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful. And since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Apologies for the late post but I’ve just peeked out of the igloo I’ve been living in since Friday. Doesn’t seem I’ve missed much though. The “celebrity”…

Club Report: 5th November 2017

Well, Newsie has had to step down from reporting duties, allegedly entering rehab for a bad Shot Blok habit, so whilst he/she is incapacitated, you’ll have to put up with me. You’ve had the funny one and the poetic one, now it’s the bitter and twisted one. I’m the uncle nobody talks about, the one…
