Every year, we like to invite clients and contacts to join us and watch a rugby match at the Aspatria club and we have a complimentary bar open for our guests during the afternoon. This is a great way for us to thank people for their business during the year.
The day started at around 1pm. Clients came from all over the county but many arrived on the 12.45 train from Carlisle which was jammed full with our invited guests and staff. Having sampled a drink or two and had a bite to eat from the fantastic buffet which was laid on by the club’s ladies committee, the match kicked off at 2.30pm.
This year the team were up against a very good Sandal side who were sitting 3rd in the league. Our very own staff member, Jack Clegg was playing for the Aspatria team and they went on to win the match 38-6 which was a surprise to many people including avid supporters of the club. Having had a spell of very frosty weather, we were not sure whether the match would have to be called off, but the sun came out and we have had great feedback from people saying what a fantastic day it was.
Back in the club house, I announced the winners of our guess the score competition and thanked everyone for coming. The rugby club also had their own raffle and there are three winning raffle tickets still unclaimed yet, so if your number was any of these then let us know.
