Big thanks to Tony O'Brien for organising another super Christmas do and doing a raffle with the best prizes seen.Thanks to Ady Burrows & Steve Lelacheur for organising & running the bar. Big up to Kieron O'Brien for the disco. Massive thanks to the parents & children who supported the Christmas extravaganza. Finally thanks to Santa for making a appearance despite this being his busiest time of the year.
The idea of this function is so we can, as a club, give something back to the kids. I appreciate that the appearance of Santa is more for the younger of our children, however it was very disappointing the absence of so many of our 280 kids. Also we have over 500 parents.I know its a busy time of year but it would be nice for you to support the club & we get to know you a little better. For us parents its a time to socialise & show off our dancing skills. We would like to create a family atmosphere around the club. Maybe not joining in & socialising is the family way, who knows.
I feel it shows a little bit of disrespect to Tony, Ady, Steve, Kieron & Santa who have put a lot of hard work into this. It would be nice if a team or parents organised a function of sorts, whatever it is the club will support you. We could learn from each other.
Merry Christmas to you all,
Allexton & New Parks FC
