Mini Section Christmas Party – Sunday 11th December
You are all welcome to join in the festive activities from 1pm Sunday 11th December. After the morning training session, the Mini Section will be holding its Christmas Party,
so one would suggest that children bring along a change of clothing – ‘Dress to Impress’, food and drinks, possibly a visitation from the ‘man in red’ (who could that be we ask?), sing along with ‘Sir Les’.
Hope to see everyone there, especially to thank Kathy and her team a massive thank you.

Sunday 7th December 2008
Santa will be coming to the club on Sunday 7th.
We thought it would be nice for the children to bring a gift or donation and give it to Santa. These donations will be taken to local charities – so far the Spinal Injuries Unit at Stanmore Orthopaedic Hospital has been suggested. If there are any charities you would like us to contribute to, please let Caroline, Aisling or Jo know.
We will require helpers to get the party set-up whilst the children train.
We will also like to reiterate the need for the children to go straight into the showers and get changed prior to coming into the club house.
Festivities and feedback
Owls were hooting, bats gathering, slow footsteps of the decaying zombie like figures shuffled across the car park in search of human flesh groaning and moaning, it was dark, it was scary, then a scream, gurgling gasps, the crunching of bone, creaking doors, a whisper, then silence…………………….
This was the beginning of the first Pinner & Grammarians mini section Halloween party.
A twist in the now common trick or treat – ‘trick or trunk’ took place – parents decorated the boots/hatchback compartments of their cars in a Halloween theme and children were able to go from car to car to collect treats; a much safer and more enjoyable time was had, beats pounding through the streets annoying the general public!
Then on inside for the party – a mass of food and drink was laid out on tables and all indulged in scoffing and slurping.
The changing rooms had been transformed into a haunted house. Entry was 50p through the concealed door.
Children were invited to enter each room to basically be scared out of their skins!
Smeared blood stains festooned the walls of the blood room, a lone head dripping with blood lay on the floor – the culprit, stitched head and glowing eyes was snatching at the children’s hands as they grabbed furiously at the treats that lay at the monsters feet.
The smoke filled corridor had more surprises in hand – the dead rising from the coffin, boney hand pointing the way into the surgeons’ parlour. Gruesome, gory, grisly goings on inside this room – the mad doctor operating on what was the past captain of the first team; pulling out his guts, squeezing intestines and letting them drop to the floor. Any child brave enough to enter might end up the same way.
Yet, it was not just the children who were scared ……. They know who they are
Later, thanks to Sarah, a firework display, crash, bang, crack and that’s just the sound of the ‘fire-starter’ moving out of the way of rogue sparks and misguided rockets festooned the sky above – wooh, waah, oooooh came the sounds from the masses stood outside the clubhouse.
A fantastic end to a brilliant evening. A big thank you to all those who helped organise this party, to the visiting ghouls who took up residence in the haunted house and lastly to the parents and children who made such as terrific effort in decorating, making and wearing costumes.
There’s a house within the clubhouse
We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.
Tonight they have their party,
All the lights are dim and slight,
But oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.
The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about.
They sing their songs to Halloween.
“Come join the fun,” they shout.
But we do not want to go there
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.
The general comments coming back to us are that everybody had a fabulous time – Aisling, Caroline and Jo worked extremely hard to ensure everything was set up and ready for the 4pm start. For the future we will require extra volunteers to help and therefore have decided we need to form a support group – If you’re willing to offer your assistance please talk to Caroline and Aisling ( found behind the bar on Sundays).
