Tha annual AVC Christmas Cena at Blackwood’s Maes Manor Hotel has been announced for Sunday 29th November.
Make sure you let everyone know, do not keep it to yourself – tell your family and friends – especially those without access to the net – and do come along and support.
by Dino Carpanini
With a forecast of an unpredictable summer for us to look forward to, Sunday June 21st did not prove to be an exception. The day dawned cloudy with the heavy scent of dampness in the air. As usual, the AVC committee were first on the scene to prepare for the day – setting up the bocce rinks, the sound system, car parking etc.
