After enjoying ourselves for the last few years, a few of us from the Newby Hall committee have decided to push on with this event and see if we can eventually take it up a level, so for the third time, we are happy to invite you all to our Christmas Fayre and party night on Saturday 24th November at Arden Road social club from 11am and going in to the evening, officially until 22:00 but more than likely beyond. We will have a special visit from none other than Santa Claus himself!
But this year of course there is a big difference! Yorkshire doesn't need to fundraise, so the floor has been given over with a warm invite to our friends in Aberdeenshire to come down and show us what they've got. And naturally, we will be inviting the usual crowd to do similar.
Again, the day will consist of many parts.
From 11:00 our stall holders will be trying to sell you their wonderful Christmas gift ideas for the special cachers in your life
At 14:00 we would like to get all the kids together for our special visitor and we'll put on stuff for them throughout the day
At around 15:30 we are hoping to have some caches published, so that we can kick you out of the hall and prepare for the next stage - of course you can hang around at this time but you will probably be given a job.
From 17:00 we will be moving in to evening entertainment. We would be grateful if attendees could bring with them something for a buffet (and raffle, naturally, there is a hall to pay for after all ) and there will be a bit of a disco. Or music at any rate. But not so loud you can't hear yourself talk...
At this stage those timings are subject (and likely) to change but you get the idea...
There is a bar and we will have something to make teas and coffees. And we will try to get him to stay open longer this time
We will be contacting folks post August 5th but please don't wait to be invited, if you want to get involved, please drop us a line.
This listing will be fluid as we get nearer to the time, so please put your will attend in or watch the page to get the latest information.
For now, it would be really useful in your will attends to give us some detail:
How many kids, what age, boys or girls etc that you will be bringing, so that we can let Santa know
What you might be able to bring to a buffet. It would be a shame if we ended up with 57 bags of wotsits. I like wotsits no more now than I did in 2016.
It's a long day. We don't expect people to be there the full time. But we'll probably get someone to design a fancy flashing gif for anyone that manages the full stretch But seriously, some will want to just come for the party, some for the fayre, it's all good!
There is no logo yet, there is no colour. This is a bit weird.
