Nippers Christmas Party – 14th December 2019

We will have our usual Christmas Breakup on Saturday 14th December after training and all families are asked to bring a plate – Boys are allocated Savoury and Girls Sweet.

Items are required to be cut and plated before delivery to the canteen before or during training (don’t forget to pick up your plate/serving container afterwards).

We ask that items requiring warming be limited to 2-3 families per age group as it takes time to warm items.

Training will finish early from 2:30pm and each age group will take turns going upstairs to the food, starting with the Under 7’s and moving through to the Under 13’s.

We will also have a visit from a very special person who usually dresses in a red suit!!!

Volunteers are needed to assist in the kitchen with plating up and overseeing the serving tables.

Please text Steph Breden on 0429 046 362 if you can help
