Director, The Self Centre

This month we look at the vital importance of

COMMUNICATION!

I’m slightly embarrassed to say that it was only a couple of years ago that someone pointed out to me that using CAPITALS in an email or text meant you were shouting at the person or being very direct! I was just using them to emphasise a point! We have so many fancy methods of communicating with each other now emails, texting, facebook, twitter, PInterest, LinkedIn the list is endless. My youngest is away on a school trip this week and they were not allowed to take their mobiles, I found myself initially reacting quite crossly as I wanted to be able to check up on her but then I reflected and remembered the complete freedom we had as kids and students – whenever we went out or went on trips or to Uni our parents had to trust us (big mistake!) as there were no mobiles or internet! One of the main things that strikes me about communication though is that face to face is the only real way you can say what you feel without it being open to misinterpretation – maybe a phone call will come as a runner up (better on Skype coz you can see the person’s face as well!) How many times has an email or text you sent been misinterpreted? Have people posted things on Facebook and Twitter that they are not brave enough to say to someone’s face? Jackie Richardson offers us L.I.F.E. SKILLS FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION L = how we listen to people. This is about ACTIVE LISTENING where you refrain from stating your position and allow the other person to finish what they are saying. Don’t interrupt. Bite upon your tongue if necessary! Then reflect back your understanding of what they have just told you before you state your own opinion. This has a hugely calming effect upon the other person in that they feel heard and understood and makes it much more likely that the conversation can proceed in a calm manner. I = speak from your own position, from ‘I’, stating how ‘I’ feel about things, not

10

The Moreton Hall Directory

complaining or blaming the other person. For example, don’t blame the other person with comments like, “Do you always have to do that…you can’t be bothered… you are too selfish…you are a lazy so and so…” Effective communication requires that you don’t criticise the other person or their behaviour but instead state how you feel about what they do. For example, “I feel really upset when you ignore me.” The golden rule is to prefix all of your statements with how you feel and to speak from your own perspective, from ‘I’. F = the freedom to own your own problems. So often in life

problems can be made worse by well-meaning people moving in and assuming that, because a problem exists they should be the ones to solve it. People who have studied human psychology know that humans are problem-solvers and that we actually thrive when we have problems to solve. Problems can be seen as peoples ‘capital’; as developmental opportunities. Just because someone has a problem doesn’t mean you should steal it from them and try to solve it. People grow through learning how to overcome problems. So, if a problem exists first ask yourself, “Is this problem mine and is it my responsibility to

solve it?” If it isn’t then allow the person to whom the problem belongs to have a go at solving it. By all means, if people ask for your help then assist them the best you can.

The Route to a Defined Six Pack There is no doubt that the abdominal muscle is one of the most talked about body parts when looking for a toned physique, it’s one of the main parts of the body that really defines someone’s condition. I have seen members carry out abdominal exercises every gym session for months and months and wonder why they’re not seeing any results. If you have a layer of body fat over your abs it doesn’t matter how many “crunches” you do you’ll not see any results. I’m sure a lot of readers will have heard the phrase “six packs are made in the kitchen” and to a certain degree I believe this is true. I have members coming up to me asking why they’re not achieving a flat stomach or six pack and when I ask them to detail their food consumption over the past 3 days it isn’t difficult to see where members are going wrong. If you would like me to offer nutrition advise please feel free to get in touch. Clients of mine are also aware of how much stress and insulin play a big part in the body fat that accumulates around the stomach area. I have written in previous MHD editorials about hormones but once again if you would like more information on this please feel free to get in touch. Exercises such as squats, dead lifts and the shoulder press are great ways to train the core muscles, which support performance as well as teach us to activate our abdominal muscles correctly. I also get informed of a lot of members injuring themselves whilst training abdominal muscles, this is usually down to bad form and a poorly structured programme. You need to make sure you are training your postural and posterior chain muscles such as the glutes, hamstrings and lower back. So if you’re working in a chair all day, or driving a lot, and then carry out hundreds of crunches, is it a suprise you’re rounding your lower back and causing tightness and discomfort? Now the exciting bit, training your abdominal muscles. If you were looking to tone up the chest or legs you would include weights so why not for the abs? Abdominal muscles respond in the same way as any other muscle so if you’re current programme has you doing hundreds of crunches STOP and add weights to your routine. Here are two great exercises to add to your current programme. 3 sets 10-12 reps 1: Add a weighted plate or dumbbell when doing a Swiss ball crunch. 2: Hanging Garhammer raise (keep knees at a 90 degree angle and bring to the chest). Any questions or information you would like regarding this article or any other matter relating to fitness please to not hesitate in asking.

Community Centre Catering

We at the Moreton Hall Community Centre are happy to announce that we have started selling homemade meals on Friday, Saturday and Sundays (bank holiday Mondays too). Our new chef, Stephen Cross, with many years of experience in the hospitality and catering industry, has put together a delicious sounding bar menu, kids menu, buffet menus, wedding menus and Christmas Menu(!) to cater for our events both in the clubroom, and for events in the centre from our wider community.

Bar Menu Homemade Soup...........................3.25 Moreton Hall Club Burger........6.25 Chicken Burger..............................6.25 Chicken or Veggie Tikka Massala...............6.45 Fish & Chips.....................................6.45 Open Steak & Ale Pie..................6.45 2-course Sunday Roast ..............5.95 Served Sundays only 12-4pm

Kids Menu Available!

The focus of our menu is on

good quality, homemade grub that is both delicious and value for money. Our Sunday roast menu that we offer every Sunday between 12-4pm, is only £5.95 for 2 courses, and as far as value goes, we believe you can’t get better than that in Bury St Edmunds (and possibly beyond!). Although we are a members club, we cannot stress enough that anyone who is not a member is very welcome to come down and sample our menu and drinks; though once you see the premises you may find yourself a membership fee lighter than when you came! On Friday and Saturdays, and any bank holiday Mondays we offer our bar menu. The dishes on here range from a homemade soup of the day, to a MHCC Burger, chilli and rice complete with homemade nachos, gammon steak – all the pub classics that perfectly complement a clear, cold glass of wine or a refreshing frothy beer. On Fridays, we’re serving from 6pm to 9pm. On Saturdays, it is 4pm to 9pm. These times may change as we figure out when is the best time for us to offer this provision, but we’ll keep you updated if and when they do. Of course there is a kid’s menu, with which you can mix and match the different parts of the meal to create a combination that will suit your child’s requirements to a tee – prices are just £3 per meal! From an events side of things, this also means we can offer a comprehensive service if you’re planning on having a special day at the centre. Birthday parties, weddings, christenings – you name it, and we can provide both the space, bar and now the catering for it. The buffet menus range from a simple business like lunch of fresh sandwiches, homemade sausage rolls and BBQ marinated chicken wings, at £3.95 a head, all the way to beautifully carved topside of beef, smoked salmon, jacket potatoes, fragrant vegetable tikka massala and more for a platinum buffet menu at £10.95 a head.

So please come down and see what we can offer you. All of our meat comes from a local butcher, all of our food is homemade where practicable, and our prices represent brilliant value for money.

See you all soon!

Whats been happening at... Abbots Green Community Primary School

Linked to this term’s project “Food Glorious Food” our Year 4 children in Orchid Class have been getting creative with food. The inspiration for their artwork was Arcimboldo, the Italian artist, best known for creating imaginative portraits made entirely from such objects as fruits, vegetables, flowers and fish. The children in Orchid Class began by reviewing some of the artist’s work. “Arcimboldo is very creative” said Emily G. “The way he has used different foods is imaginative and inspirational.” Ella added “When I first looked at Arcimboldo’s art work it looked strange, but when I looked closer I realised that he had used different fruit and vegetables to make a face and I liked it!” Zac continued “I like how he uses different fruit and vegetables to link with each part of the face – particularly apples for cheeks!” Working in pairs the children then designed their very own faces using a selection of fruit and vegetables and other food items. Following the design stage they then recreated the faces with oil pastels. Lois really enjoyed working with oil pastels “....I could be really creative with it – I used an orange for the nose!” All the work produced is now proudly on display in Orchid Class and as you can see it looks extremely effective. Jess was particularly surprised by the overall effect and said “At first I thought it would look like just a pile of food, but when we finished it was a face!”

ON Good News/ GP Appointments DEVELOPMENT MORETON HALL Since we put our piece in the MHD the number of missed appointments have dropped, but there is still room for improvement. There are many ways by which you can contact the surgery, please let them know if you are unable to keep a no longer needed appointment and they can give it to someone who really needs to see a doctor or nurse.

At a meeting held in the Moreton Hall Community Centre Taylor Wimpey unveiled their plan for 550 houses to be built East of Lady Miriam Way. The Master Plan contained the following: • A continuation of the leafy and attractive character of Moreton Hall • A range of house types including affordable homes • Improved facilities at the Moreton Hall Community Centre • Retention of the Flying Fortress public house

Un-adopted Roads I am forever getting complaints regarding litter and unkempt verges on roads on our Estate, below is list of un-adopted roads, these are still in the ownership of the developers and therefore the responsibility of those developers to maintain. • Beal Close • Hazel Road • Juniper Road • Kendall Close

All of the above are belonging to Taylor Wimpey contact Mr Alan Squirell on 01284 77380 if you see a problem please contact Alan. The following have been adopted just recently and bins are now being emptied: • Bromley Green Lane • Manning Road • Turn Stone Drive

• New areas of public open space including Neighbourhood and Local Areas of Play • A permanent landscaping edge to the town • An extension to existing footpath and cycleway links including a connection to the north of the railway line The company are also working with Churchmanor Estates to ensure the delivery of the link road between Moreton Hall and the Rookery Crossroads and to bring forward new employment opportunities by way of an extension of the Suffolk Business Park.

DOG FOULING Will our dogs ever teach their owners to clear up after we (the dogs) do our business?. I have had so many complaints about dog fouling especially around Abbots Green School. Come on folks! think of the kids going to school. Please clear up after your dogs. We do have a dog warden and one day you will get caught, it’s a £1,000 fine. If you know someone who constantly does not clear up their mess let me know and I will inform St Edmunds Council and they will get a visit.

Until next time take care. Frank The Moreton Hall Directory

Moreton Hall’s Monthly Nature Watch by Woodland Ways

Bee-flies in Moreton Hall This spring, you may have noticed some small furry balls serenely humming around the gardens and open spaces of Moreton Hall, all very peacefullooking except that each furry ball has a vicious-looking spike sticking out the front end. Natterer’s Wood, and the rough land at Lady Miriam Way are places where this has been seen, as well as several other places nearby. These anomalous insects are called bee-flies, and, although closely related to the common house fly, try to disguise themselves as bees for protection from predators. They look fairly like bees, and in bad light or with a brief glimpse the disguise is effective.

The frontal spike is in fact a stiff tongue and this is used to sip nectar from low-growing flowers such as ground-ivy, primroses or aubretia, whilst flying like tiny hummingbirds. They are incredibly fast and agile fliers. They tend to fly at 0.5 metres above ground, but can fly up to 3 metres high. Many bee-flies fly along the ground to absorb heat from sun-drenched surfaces, whilst others fly further up trees to maximise direct sunlight. When cold, the bee-flies perch vertically, pointing upwards, and they can remain in this position for a week or even longer. The nectar-sipping adult is very different in habits from its earlier life-stage. Bee-flies search out nests of digger wasps or solitary bee species, or sometimes beetle nests, and lay their eggs in or close to the nest. When the eggs hatch, the bee-fly grubs parasitise the larvae of their host species.

Join us at Woodland Ways...

Why not join in with a Woodland Ways work party to help improve the Moreton Hall woods? No experience is needed and all are welcome; we’ll show you what to do. For more information please see www.woodlandways.org.uk, see the Woodland Ways noticeboard in the Community Centre, contact Nick Sibbett on 01284 723847 or email information@woodlandways.org.uk.

‘FUN’DRAISING FOR BREAKTHROUGH BREAST CANCER Three energetic Bury St Edmunds residents have created a totally new event, with the aim being to put the fun into raising funds and promoting awareness for Suffolk Breakthrough Breast Cancer – The Bury Wacky Races. The harsh reality is Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, effecting 130 people each day. So 4,000 mums, daughters, sisters and husbands, sons, brothers and friends will hear the dreadful news this month alone. Breakthrough Breast Cancer works hard to improve and save lives, through brilliant research. With breast cancer stealing so many headlines recently, particularly with Angelina Jolies courageous disclosure, Laura Hudson, chair of the Suffolk Breakthrough Breast Cancer group says “We wanted to bring everyone together in a way never seen before, to show that it is not all doom and gloom, we simply want to encourage people to get involved having fun and go a little crazy. Everyone’s support will literally help Breakthrough scientists save lives through their research”.

The Bury Wacky Races will be held on Saturday 27th July, and sees teams of 4 pitted against each other in 7 different challenges, each Wackier than the last. Starting at The Arc, where teams will compete in the first 4 events including a scooter race, nappy run, egg and spoon race and pub quiz. A 3 legged procession through town, followed by a race from the Abbey Gardens to The Bury Rugby Club, where entrants will be in for more fun and games including archery, sack racing and another old favourite the tug ‘o’ war. Local business’s including The Arc, The Rugby Club, The Abbeyfields Clinic, Carters Barber Shop and Sam Jordan Cars have all shown their support for the project and generously donated prizes.

All we need is YOU and your team. Please, please sign up today for The Bury Wacky Races. Teams of 4, age 14 and over can enter. For more information please visit http://burywackyraces.wix.com/home 26

Christ Church Moreton Hall First of all a big thank you to all who helped with Christian aid in May; to all who collected, all who gave so generously and those who ran so far. And a special thank you to David Ruffley MP for starting out Fun Run. When we have a final total we will let you know. June is going to be a wonderful month for Moreton Hall and for Christ Church too. On Sunday 23rd we will be pleased to host the Civic Service for our new Mayor, Councillor Terry Buckle, to which you are all invited. It is a significant honour to the estate that he is the Mayor for the forthcoming year. It is also an endorsement of his tireless work for the community over the last twentyfive years both as Leader of the community centre and as a local councillor. On the next Sunday, 30th June, we will be celebrating the Ordination to the Priesthood of our new curate, David Carpenter. He will be Priested at the Cathedral on the Saturday evening, 29th June, and then celebrate his first communion at Christ Church the following morning. This is the fruition of many years of hard work and training and also an acknowledgement that David has heard the call of God, responded to it and followed Him into a new place of authority and servant-hood. Please come and join us. It is not unreasonable to say that both Terry and David have been transformed by their work for the community and now the community in different ways is acknowledging them, both for the work they have done and for the people they have become. Their lives are an example to us all and each in their own

way challenges many of the assumptions that currently drive our society. We live in an age where everything is dominated by a sense of self. People have their life plans, their career plans and a touchstone for many of their decisions is ‘what’s best for me’. While there is nothing wrong with this in itself, it does speak to a logical absurdity. You cannot build a world where everybody gets exactly what they want, when they want it, and how they want it. Human life is about community and about reciprocal responsibility. Society works best when everyone contributes and everyone receives. The duty of society’s leaders to ensure that process is as fair as possible. Although in the course of life there will be unfairness, due to human frailty, over time this usually evens out. Terry and David have taken a different view. They have decided to serve the community, to use their talents and their skills for the good of others before themselves. They have done this knowing that there are no great rewards for such service. You don’t make a fortune out of being a local councillor and David, as a selfsupporting minister, only gets his expenses from the church. They have done this because they see human need and they want to help and, in David’s case, he has heard the call

of Jesus Christ saying “Come follow me”. Both David and Terry are actually following the example of Christ, who as the scriptures say ‘came to serve rather than to be served and to give His life as a ransom for many’ (Matt. 20: 28). While it is good to have life plans, it is through service and having a greater concern for others than for ourselves, that we find lasting peace and the joy we all secretly desire. Perhaps we should all, in the words of that great American President J.F. Kennedy, ask the question, ‘not what can my country do for me, but what can I do for my country’. In our case, maybe the statement should be ‘life is not about what I get out of it, but rather what I can put into it’. As if we think about that over the next few weeks and months and do something about it, we can build a better community on Moreton Hall, and a better world. With every good wish, Revd. Canon Jonathan Ford.

Moreton Hall Residents’ Association Chairman’s Update June 2013 First of all thanks to those organisations who took part in our Open Day on 10th May and residents who dropped in. The attendance was a little disappointing but some very interesting conversations were going on around the room. Feed-back from the developers continued to stress how useful these meetings are. Whether the more formal arrangement of previous meetings compared with the more casual approach of the May meeting is more effective has still to be decided and I would welcome residents views on this issue. Two important documents have become available to the public during May: VISION 2031 The latest version of the Borough’s development plans is becoming available to be read although the consultation will not commence until the 18th June. The consultation will only last for six weeks so that time for consideration of the numerous documents is extremely limited. This is an important set of documents with many factors impacting on residents. Some of you have responded to earlier versions and I am sure you will wish to see what consideration has been given to those responses. We anticipate that the Council will organise events to present this latest version of the plans and the Residents’ Association will engage with these events along with taking other action considered appropriate. SUFFOLK COUNTY COUNCIL’S TRAFFIC REPORT. This document including a report by their consultants reviews 11 key junctions with regard to current traffic levels and proposed developments under Vision 2031. The resulting proposals are based on the assumption that other measures will reduce traffic levels by making greater use of public transport, walking and cycling. However the S.C.C. covering letter admits that “it is not reasonable to assume that these improvements will result in nil detriment to the highway network within Bury St Edmunds” i.e.it is going to get worse! I hope that before this edition of MHD has arrived with you that three residents’ associations will have met to formulate an approach to these proposals. Prior to the May meeting we prepared a newsletter giving relevant information regarding MHRA activities. The cost of a door to door circulation was prohibitive for our current funding but a limited distribution was made by hand delivery and email. If you would wish to receive copies of future newsletters please let me or any of the Committee know. Mike Bacon Chairman. 10 Bederic Close email mhrachairman@talktalk.net The Moreton Hall Directory

Party Predicament by Andrew Southwood

HEN WE SET ABOUT organising our son’s 5th birthday party this year we decided there was no chance of us hosting the event at home. Our house is fairly child friendly, but after last years wash out, the prospect of a dozen or more hyperactive kids using our living room as a playground did not appeal to me. We’ve had a couple of successful gatherings here in the past, like the ‘building site’ themed party where a team of 3 year olds, dressed in hard hats and hi-viz, constructed (and destructed) towers of boxes and such like in our garden, bathed in glorious sunshine. And that is the key – sunshine. However, if there is one thing that you can rely on it’s the great British weather. That is to say, you can rely on it more often than not, messing up your plans. So, now the kids are bigger, louder and greater in numbers, a new venue, with ample indoor play space was needed. Our research paid off, as we found a bargain village hall, the perfect space for untamed indoor play. Negotiations with our son resulted in an ‘under the sea’ theme to proceedings. This was fine, and provided hours of craft activities in the cold, damp weeks leading up to the party. Decorations and games fashioned out of tissue paper, cardboard, paper plates and pretty much anything else that would save the blue bin lorry a few loads. The day of the party arrived, and of course it was the most gorgeous sunny morning we’d seen all year, perfect for a garden party –

nevermind, we laughed off the irony… mostly. The cake, lovingly and skilfully made by my wife, depicted a rather ominous looking ‘diver & shark’ scene, was delivered in one piece. A frantic childfree 45 mins to decorate and prepare the hall and we were all set. The home made party games seemed to go down well, although to be honest it’s all a bit of a blur to me now. Snippets of slightly surreal memories; doughnuts on strings, sleeping sharks, and a parachute are all that remain. The temptation to offer a platter to feed an army of 500 hungry men, rather than 20 small kids, was on the whole successful. My zero waste goal, clearly unrealistic, but my conscious was clear. The passing of another young year was offset by only a one small bag of landfill, which sadly will outlive us all. The only thing left to do was to decide what to do with the 30 handmade jellyfish/octopuses (I am never quite sure which they are?) that, as I write, still hang in our aquarium like conservatory. Still, only 4 months until we’ll have a 3 year olds birthday party to organise – I’m thinking a sea theme would be good?

Pauls Jobs for the Month March is a good month to undertake these four jobs - tidying your borders, repairing or creating a lawn, planting vegetables and cleaning out your pond Lawns l Lawns should be growing fast and will need cutting every 2 weeks. Trim the edges for a neat finish. Planting Vegetables l You can plant tomatoes and courgettes in the vegetable bed. l Continue to make sowings of salad crops such as lettuce, spring onions and rocket l Don’t forget to hoe between your rows of vegetable to keep the weeds down. l Your runner beans will need some support. I usually put in a couple of rows 2ft apart. I like to use 8ft tall bamboo canes and bend these into the centre to form an A frame. I also tie in additional canes along the length of the canes about 2 ft off the ground to give the framework more solidity and give the beans more chance to climb. l Plant out Brussel sprouts and leeks

Doing The Jobs You Don’t Have Time For?

l Earth up potatoes Fruit l The fruits on your strawberries will have many admirers . Keep the birds off with suitable netting. Keep the fruit off the ground by using straw or newspaper around your plants. l Thin out your gooseberries by picking some for stewing. l Blossom on trees was good this year promising a good crop of fruit. However thin out apples, plums and pears if the trees look over burdened. l Prune mature plum and cherry trees to remove any dead or diseased wood Planting up a Hanging Basket

Hello all, and welcome to the June edition of the Moreton Hall Community Centre editorial! I think it is first worth saying congratulations to Colin Houghton for his efforts in organising the 3rd Annual Darts Open at the centre on May 18th last month, which boasted an ex world champion and 3 players who have been ranked on the top 100 of the PDC. The centre had a spectacularly busy day, which saw both food and beer sell out, so thank you all for your support. The eventual winner was Lionel Sams (PDC), who beat Andy Gilding (PDC) in the final 5-1 to take home the princely sum of £800, with the runner up taking £400. Also, a big well done for all the staff and volunteers who helped make the day the exceptional success it was. Here’s to the fourth tournament! I wonder how many dartboards we can fit in the hall?! For those that were there for Harley Street in the evening as well, it was a fantastic show and saw many of you throwing some serious shapes on the dance floor! Later in the year we will certainly be booking their sister band, Ska Souls, so keep tuned for details of when! May has seen the launch of our food provision for our community centre, which if the feedback from our guinea pigs members is anything to go by, has been very well received. In particular our 2 course Sunday lunch, which sells for £5.95, and completely sold out the second week we ran it. Our new chef running the kitchen, Stephen Cross, has many years of experience in the industry as head chef, and has already devised many menus for all kinds of occasions, be it weddings, christenings, birthday parties or otherwise; we’d be happy to provide you with the meal and service you require. The onus of our menu is good quality, homecooked meals at good value, and we’re confident with our mix of food that we’ve hit the proverbial nail on the head. The Bar menu is run on Fridays from 6-9pm, and Saturdays from 4-9pm. The food available ranges from burgers and chips, to tikka massala and many in between. Kid’s Menus are available with all kids meals being £3, and you can pick and choose from a selection to create the perfect meal for your kids! If you want any details on what we offer for events or at the club, please do drop us an email on moretonhallclub@aol.com. In upcoming events this month, on the 8th June Dave Dobbyn is hosting a Charity Football match followed by a Race Night in the clubroom in the evening. Come along if you’re feeling particularly lucky, it’s sure to be a good night out. We will also be having Savannah Love performing live music in the clubroom on Saturday 29th June. It’s free entry for all, member or non member, everyone’s welcome to enjoy the musical stylings! Adding to the list of confirmed attractions on 28th July for our annual Funday is gladiator style jousting, a bungee run, a rodeo bull, as well as Zorb balls and a craft fair inside the hall. A BBQ will be running throughout the day, and an adult football tournament

is also being organised. Of course there is a huge raffle during the day showcasing generous donations from all the community, which is sure to be competitively fought for, and the bar will be licenced from 11am as well. It’s sure to be a brilliant day with plenty going on, so save the date! Calling out to all readers – we’re hoping to host a “wacky” sports day on Saturday 10th August in the afternoon. This will involve activities for all the family, including egg and spoon races, three legged races, tug of war and tetherball tournaments! We will need people to help with all those kids (and adults) running around, so if you’ve got a bit of spare time, we’d really appreciate a hand! We’ve decided to reprieve the beach party that was held last year as well and have got Micky Logan in to DJ for our next one on Saturday 24th August! It’s sure to be a good night, so come and celebrate the sunshine with us with cocktails and sand all around! Of course, bingo continues to be held every other Tuesday, with the next one being held on the 11th June, and do come and join us supporting England in the Summer with the matches being held on the big screen in the clubroom. We are also planning ahead for Christmas! On 7th and 14th December this year we are putting on two Christmas nights for your end of year celebrations. There will be live bands on both nights, with a DJ set afterwards, and a three course meal followed by mince pies and tea or coffee. We have also arranged a special offer with the Quality Hotel, just down the road, with their newly redecorated double/twin rooms available at the bargain price of £45 room only when you have your Christmas celebration with us – no need to worry about taxis or designated drivers when you can be at your hotel after a ten minute stroll down the road! Prices are £27.95 for an all inclusive night out complete with good entertainment, fine food and fantastic atmosphere, so call now to book your space on 01284 763402, or if you want any information sent out, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email on moretonhallclub@aol.com. So with plenty to do, see and get involved in come on down for a drink and something to eat! You don’t have to be a member to come for a meal, so if you’re in the area and want to try some delicious home made food, have a friendly chat and relax on our newly redecorated patio in the (fingers crossed) sunshine, you know where we are. See you all soon!
