Happy Birthday WKRC

As you may be aware the West Kent Road Club will celebrate its eightieth birthday this year having been inaugurated in 1938.

To mark this special occasion, we wish invite all current and former members of the WKRC to a lunch time meeting at the Chequers Public House Cray Road Crockenhill BR8 8LP on SATURDAY 16TH June 2018

The meeting/celebration will start at noon and guests can purchase drinks from the bar and tea and coffee and some finger food will be available.

Guests will be invited to make a small voluntary donation on arrival to the club funds if they are able in order to cover the cost of the food and room hire.

A selection of photographs and written club memorabilia from the club archives will be on show.  We are extending this invite to widows of former members.

In order that we can gauge the numbers who may attend please email the current social secretary Trevor Benton at t.benton@ntlworld.com and can I ask that if you have any personal contact with ex members you could mention this event to them on my behalf.

Kind Regards

President Colin Ashcroft WKRC
