New roof for Club

Five Rivers celebrates the completion of its new roof which was supported by the Salisbury Area Board with a grant of £5,000 against the total cost of £22,400.  The old asbestos roof had reached the end of its useful life and concern was expressed that a major leak would damage the carpet which had recently been replaced at a cost of £25K. Please see images of the new roof below.

Successful Quiz Night

The club’s quiz night was hosted by Graham House on Friday 22 March at the club. With full capacity of 11 teams (of 5) and a wonderful meal in the evening (curry/lasagne options) made by Janice Rowe and her catering team, the evening promised to be a great time – it did not disappoint! The club made £191 profit from the evening with bar, food and drink money and so a great evening for club funds.

The winning team consisted of Brian Merritt, Jenny McShane, Fraser Boynton, Ashley Plumb and Ashley Peach.
