Burns night

Last week was again busy with a full round of meetings, advice centres and of course leafleting. This week we have been out in Weoley and Kings Norton. with their In Touches. Despite the cold weather we still get a good turnout and the socialising afterwards is also good. This week we used the Northfield Conservative Club and the Cock Inn. As usual we got a great reception in both.
On Tuesday night we held a Burns Supper at The Toby-Rubery. This was another great occasion with a full house, excellent food courtesy of Rob and some dodgy poetry from Ken, Roger King and Keith.
We managed to raise several hundred pounds for Keely's fighting fund which is very welcome but the highlight of the night had to be The Haggis with a delicious whisky & mushroom sauce and an Address by Stewart Leask.. Rob really excelled himself and we have already booked for next year. The Toby has come on leaps & bounds since Rob & Damien took it over, they even have a Facebook page. Good luck to them!
