Lymm and District Round Table are holding a Charter Night to mark their 50thyear on Friday 20th February, 7:30pm, at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Lymm.
The fundraising group, which organises popular community events throughout the year including the Easter Monday Duck Race, Big Lymm Bonfire and Lymm Beer Fest, is inviting all former Table members to a night of hot food, a private bar and entertainment.
Current chairman Chris Gorman said: “This will be an informal evening where Table members past and present can share stories about the good old days and hopefully catch up with some forgotten faces.
“It would be good to see as many former Tablers there as possible – either from Lymm and District or further afield – plus if anyone has any memorabilia or old photos to add to the occasion that would be great too.”
Tickets are priced at £10 and to book your spot or find out more call Chris Stephens on 01925 759699 (evenings) or email email@example.com

Lymm and District Round Table’s annual bonfire smashed its previous fundraising record after amassing a staggering £13,500 for charity.
This dwarfs last year’s record total of £7,500 and represents the most successful event in the Table’s 50-year history.
The popular event – sponsored by Kids Planet Nursery and held at Lymm Rugby Club – wowed the crowd with two fireworks displays, a range of food, refreshments and fairground rides. Lymm Ladies Circle, who served up some warming beverages, also raised over £700 for charity.
Bonfire organiser and Round Table member Rob Spurr said: “We are absolutely over the moon at the amount we have raised this year. We knew it was a busy night but never dreamed that we’d better last year by so much.
“A big thank you must go to everyone who came along, our main sponsors Kids Planet, the rugby club for hosting us and the traders who also provide a welcome contribution to the kitty.”
This year’s chairman, Chris Gorman, added: “To raise such a huge total in what is our 50th year is absolutely amazing. We have a great group of hard-working lads who have given up their free time to help out. Their commitment to the cause means a lot of charities and community groups will be getting a much-needed boost this Christmas.”
