Saturday 17th March 2018 – 12.00 pm onwards
Please note that the above annual event will be held in the clubhouse sports bar on the above date, and after the success of last year, we see absolutely no reason not to follow the usual format;
12 o’clock meet with complimentary bar until funds expire, with titbits served until the main buffet opens around 1:30, followed by England vs Ireland.
We do hope the date is convenient and you can afford the £25 per head entrance fee. The majority of attendees are those who played in the seventies and eighties but it would be great to see any new faces. This year we unfortunately clash with high-flying Charlton’s home fixture against Fleetwood Town and if you choose this alternative source of entertainment for your Saturday afternoon please feel free to drop in at the club afterwards to meet old friends and celebrate a marvellous victory/ drown your sorrows* (*delete as applicable).
Please if you have not already done so let Mick Harvey (firstname.lastname@example.org) know by email if you can attend
Our thoughts turn to Football this weekend with Old Colfeians travelling to Beckenham for their Elizabeth Jacques Cup final. Their opponents? Old Bromleians. It’s sure to be a great match and support is mandatory.
Location: Beckenham Town FC, Eden Park Avenue, Beckenham BR3 3JL

Exciting new exercise class for Mums/parents whilst babies and toddlers are entertained in a play group style environment- all in the same room.
Baby steps fitness offers aerobics exercise to music classes for parents to attend with their baby or toddler. Whilst Mum exercises, her precious little one will be kept entertained with some basic toys and games that will be provided.
Classes are run by Jenni, a pre and post natal fitness instructor and local Mum to two young and very energetic boys. Also present is a helper who is there solely to play with and help keep the children entertained, hopefully leaving Mum to enjoy the workout.

– Mum and Toddler (children that are walking/mobile) 10am at Horn Park Sports and Social Club, Eltham Road, Lee, SE12 8UE

Horn Park will be welcoming Old Colfeians back to the club next year as champions. After winning the play off final on Saturday against Camberley, the team has been promoted back to the London 1 Division, a sure sign of the resurgence of the club and a feat worthy of congratulations.

The regular season of Rugby at Horn Park draws to an end on Saturday with Old Colfeians’ last home game.
The hope of a home semi-final, a long-time league-best position of 2nd and the most pressing matter of a Beckenham team fighting to hold on to a play-off place await Horn Park’s hosts. Naturally, this will be an afternoon of entertainment with the bar open as always and a pristine pitch playing witness to the match. As an extra sweetener, the 3rd XV will be providing lighter entertainment with their game played at the same time.
No Match of the Day to watch after the international break? Don’t worry, never to be outdone by professionals, we can present you with the highlights of last weekend’s match at Horn Park. Goal of the season at 2 minutes?
On Sunday 26th March, Horn Park and Old Colfeians will be hosting a taster session for girls between 13 and 16 to try out Rugby. The session will be led by World Cup winner Vikki Fleetwood. This will be a great opportunity for new people to see what the world’s fastest growing sport is like and could even be the first step of England’s next success story.
Horn Park will be hosting ‘An Audience with Andy Gomarsall’ on the 10th March. The dinner is being held to raise funds for The Wooden Spoon Charity and the New Zealand rugby tour taking place this summer. As well as the dinner there will be an auction including some very impressive lots and a Q & A session with former England rugby international Andy Gomarsall.
Should you wish to attend please email abateson@ colfes.com stating how many tickets you require. The cost of a ticket is £40 or £280 for a table of 8.
