Parafield Gardens Community Club Inc.


*ANNOUNCEMENT*

We have been informed that the Parafield Gardens Community Club has double booked the night of our social meeting 17th January 2023.

If we change the date, members that we can't notify will still turn up and that's not a good option. So, we have booked the top room of the Club for the same time of the meeting 7pm for a 7.30 start but WITH NO MEALS. He has 250 people so they can't get food up to us...

Please spread the word to members of the change.

This is unfortunate, but this is the best we can do under short notice. Greg and the Club have always looked after us so we can do this for them, plus we thank Greg for still catering for us.
