Trafalgar dance had to be cancelled

The Wansbeck and District branch of the Royal Naval Association (RNA) has held its annual Trafalgar night dinner and dance on the nearest Saturday to October 21 for more than 30 years.

It has been tremendously successful with attendances of well over 100 guests.

Unfortunately this year, due to decreasing numbers, an ageing membership and the rising cost of staging the event, we have cancelled our planned dinner dance, which celebrates the anniversary of Lord Nelson’s greatest victory.

The members of the Wansbeck branch would like to thank all their friends and organisations who have supported the RNA for all these years.

Any current or past member of the armed forces reading this is welcome to come along and join us. We are open to all three branches of the services.

We meet twice monthly on the first and third Monday of each month.

Our meetings begin at 8pm in the Central Club, Ashington. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome.

If you are interested please phone George on (01670) 816562 or Len on (01670) 817336.
