On Saturday evening there were nearly 100 of us at the NDCC Awards Dinner at the Commodore Hotel, a wonderful evening so thank you all for coming and supporting the event and to Matt Dart and James Woolaway for organising it. Mark Overton ran a game of “Higher or Lower” during dinner which raised £401 for the club, half of which is being donated to the Merrick family towards their travel costs to visiting our valued player Mike Merrick in hospital following the very nasty head injury that he suffered in an accident a few weeks ago – our thoughts are with him and his family through the process of recovery.
