Maggie introduced the proceedings by announcing that Youngs Brewery had very kindly given a generous donation to help us in our move. Hooray, the spirit of Christmas is alive and well!

Seriously, this will be put to good use buying all the necessary bits we need – like staging, storage, decor, lighting and various bits and widgets – to set up in our new home.
It’s hard to believe, especially for those there from the start, that the Ram Club has been running for 25 years. It seems like only five minutes ago when Brian and Jane Ravenhill decided to start a club of their own, having been to lots of folk clubs over the years and thinking ‘we could do better’. And so they did!
