Trades Club Quiz
Labour Party's next General Election Campaign Theresa and her chums are falling out but none of them appear brave enough to replace her. She's relying on the right wing press and a bunch of unionist who are as untrustworthy as each other. She's unlikely to lose any votes at the moment only because parliament is in recession, but they'll be back soon.
The quiz consists of a picture round, questions on events in the news and and the ever popular and appropriate music round. All presented by the loony lefty pinko commie Dave Boardman.
Your £5 gets you the quiz, great food and an opportunity to have a splendid night out with supporters of the next government
Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend
Hebden Bridge will, once again, be the place to be on the 5th and 6th August 2017 when the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge hosts the iconic charity fund raising Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend.
This will be the 35th year for the event which is now well established as a premier attraction for the display of some 800 veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, military & commercial vehicles. Last year’s event was our best ever, breaking all records in entrants, spectators and funds raised. With your help we can make this year’s event even bigger.
Held in the heart of Hebden Bridge, at Calder Holmes Park, the open plan layout of the site allows members of the public to get up close to the exhibits and chat to their owners. This is an event with something for the whole family ~ it is far from being merely a show for collectors. Not only will there be splendid vehicles on display but also varied entertainment including live music, fun rides for children, craft & product stalls, together with a wide range of quality catering and refreshment outlets.
More info and registration
