March 2013 Lodge Abernethy Round Tower 1429

My name is Colin Hewlett, and once again this year, I am the Master of the Lodge in Abernethy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the community members that supported our various fund raising activities last year, and hope to see you again this year. Unfortunately at the time of submitting this article, our diaries of events is not completed, but please keep a look out for our posters in the usual places in the village. Doctors Surgery, The Shop, On the Lodge door etc. Plans are in the making for possibly 2 donkey derby’s this year, (both with a different format), some quizzes, dance nights, and possibly a Magic night. All our events are great fun, open to all, and help us to raise funds so that we can continue to donate to charities, both local and national.

Also to let you know, the Lodge is available for hire, for the smaller parties, clubs and meetings, with or without the bar, at very reasonable rates. For further information I can be contacted on my mobile 07830 353496 or you can contact Dave Morris on 850533
