It's Heath's 90 Year of Rugby, this season and to celebrate we held a Dinner Dance on Sat 1st December. The evening being made all the better after the Crocs away WIN! 90 past and present members, players and friends were there and had a fabulous time.
On arrival, there were canapes until we sat down for the excellent four course meal - all credit to the caterers.
There were speakers charting the Club's progress through the decades and ex-players from the 50's, like Gordon Sanderson, John Hoggard & Alan Stocks added their thoughts, in amongst.
All this was marshalled together by the fabulous Billy Wheadon, who was MC for the evening.
Add to that, there were Bouquets to acknowledge the work put in by some of our stalwart volunteers plus a presentation of 90th Anniversary Ties to 40 of Heath's Finest, courtesy of Club Chair, Paul Sutcliffe.
When the formalities were over, the Disco started. Dancing till the early hours!
Thanks must go to the organisers, who put in a massive amount of work to bring the Event together, plus; All those who came - The Speakers & MC Billy; The Caterers; Players Past and Present; Members, Guests and Friends. A great night.
