Summer Ball 2019 cancelled

By Lichfield Rugby Club

Summer Ball 2019 cancelled.

Unfortunately, despite the sterling efforts of a number of people – primarily of course Steve Suffolk – and despite a number of format changes asked for in recent feedback, we have been unable to secure the commitment of enough members and guests to guarantee making it a viable and enjoyable event.

We had only a week or so more to try to increase the numbers, but it was not looking promising and we really have no option other than make the decision to cancel this year’s ball. Given the significant costs of the marquee, band, etc., we just could not run the risk of spending hard won club funds without any realistic chance of a return.

Our sincere apologies to those who had expressed their intention to attend. Thank you for your support.

We really hope this is a one-off occurrence - largely due to a combination of competing events, but who knows, maybe this drop-off in numbers tells us that this event has run its course and we need to find other types of social events to entertain us all?

Best Regards
Paul Massey (Chairman)
