The next meeting will take place in the Methodist Church on Wednesday 11 November.



At Saturday night’s auction held in Brierley Social club, Chris Sykes with the help of Jeff Ennis MP manages to raise a total of £2,000 in aid of Grimethorpe St John Ambulance.  It has taken the total raised by Chris over the last 14 years to over £20,000. Both Terry Haynes the leader of St John in Grimethorpe and Chris commented on the generosity of the local people in both donating items and bidding for the goods and Terry added he was extremely pleased with the effort put in by Chris and Jeff in support of a local charity. Some of the bids won were a 19 inch telly that raised £120 and was won by John Clarke who was also successful in bidding for a private box at the Ladbrokes worlds darts final for £180. Maureen Lomas from Shafton bidded £100 for a racing package. Terry Haynes would also like to mention the generosity of the committee at Grimethorpe Working Mens club who have offered the St John Ambulance use of the club premises free of charge until they find alternative accommodation after closure of their headquarters at the former Miners Welfare which is to be sold.
