Computer Ashley and Casey’s Mum celebrate on 7th September. Greasy Bill’s Mrs is hoping to receive lots of presents on 9 September.

Our grateful thanks go to the following for donations and help on the night. The Forbes Services Memorial Club. Everyone welcome. 

Every Saturday afternoon we hold a cash bingo, this starts at 2pm, also at the Services Club. The more players, the larger the cash prizes, so the more players the better for everyone. Hope to see you there.
