Annual Christmas Cracker Night Fair
Again we were lucky enough to get inside the town hall for our stall at the annual Christmas Cracker Night fair in Uttoxeter town centre. As temperatures outside fell towards freezing, the crowds headed inside hoping to get warm and, for us, it was a great opportunity to introduce our club as well as sell them a raffle ticket! As usual we had a very busy stall filled with raffle prizes and I am pleased to report not only did we raise a very good sum but we also nearly sold out of all our prizes.
This will be our last big effort for 2018. However, I understand Pauline may be outside the town hall again one last time before Christmas, hoping to catch people who missed last nights events!
I would to take this time to offer a very big thank you to everyone who contributed to our prizes both last night and throughout the year. To everyone who has taken time to visit us and contributed both financially and time wise over the last 12 months to the success of our club. To every organisation who has supported us throughout 2018, your support has been tremendous and we look forward to continuing our relationship though 2019.
From all at the Uttoxeter Gateway Club, we would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Fantastic New Year!
Thank you all,
Chairman of Trustees
Hello Members, Carers, Parents, Trustees, and Supporters.
We will be doing lots of fundraising in November and December, if you have anything that would be good for a raffle or a tombola, please bring to club, or let one of us know and we will collect.
As you know Gateway is a charity and we rely heavily on our Christmas time fundraising, if you have any time to spare and would like to join us, let us know.
On behalf of Gateway
The Uttoxeter Gateway Autumn Trip to Llandudno
So off we went one cold sunny morning on a day trip to Llandudno.
When we booked it we did not realise it was the weekend the A50 was closed to remove the bridge! It did delay us slightly, but could not be helped.
We all did our own thing when we arrived. My group’s priority was the Pier and the amusement arcades. We went and rolled some 2p coins and waited for lots of winnings to fall! Others headed to the machines that made lots of noise and shot monsters or whatever!
We walked along the sea front enjoying the buskers and street entertainers until it was time for lunch. Naturally it had to be fish and chips for most as we were at the seaside. We found a café and in we went. We were looked after very well and came out full.
We had a walk around the shops, then somebody mentioned ice cream, and it became obvious we weren’t that full, so we had delicious ice creams and enjoyed the afternoon sun.
Back on the coach for the return trip, everyone agreed “a good day was had by all”.
The Uttoxeter Lions Lark in the Park
Uttoxeter Gateway once again attended Lark in the Park, on the August bank holiday weekend, an annual event hosted by the Uttoxeter Lions.
Held in Bramshall Road Recreation Ground, a free family fun day with lots of attractions including trampolines, swing boats, donkey rides and duck races to name just a few!
Pauline once again organised a fantastic tombola and raffle in a wheelbarrow. Thanks to her for a most successful fundraiser and also to all those members staff and helpers that took the the time to come along and help on the day.
A special thanks also to Michelle and Barclays Bank who supports us by coming along to help and match funding with what we make on the day.
We had a Barbecue – Tuesday 21st August
Julia and Peter very kindly hosted a barbecue for us in their fantastic garden.
The sun shone and we all had a great time.
Thank you Julia and Peter.
