As you may already know, Saturday 28th March has been set for our formal opening ceremony and party. That’s only 2 Saturdays from now and there is still loads to get ready.

With building work finishing this week, we need to use all of this coming weekend and next week to get the place really clean and looking its very best. We also need to get all the photos and other memorabilia up on the walls in good time. Don’t wait for me or Wiggy to ask for helpers on a particular day – just get together with a few others, get a key and get it done.

On the day itself we will have the formal opening at around the players’ “meet time”. After someone has ‘cut the ribbon’ the players can have a quick look around before going off to their games, leaving the guests to a buffet lunch in the clubhouse.

After the matches, when the adult players return (hopefully victorious), that’s when the party will really start. Apart from Fancy Dress and live music, we want everyone to “bring a plate” to create a great spread keep the masses happy and well fed. We did this before (at our 10th Birthday Party) and people really did the club proud with the food they brought down so I hope we can pull out all the stops and do it even better this time. All club members, young and old, are very welcome and we hope lots of the ex-players will come down and join us for the evening.

All suggestions and offers of help should go, in the first instance, to Wiggy on socialsecretary@millwallrugby.com . We will put up a suggested food list shortly on the club website, to help give people an idea what to bring, but if you have something special please let us know.
