  A whole new year of events from the LRA!

The end of 2015 was extremely busy for us with The Village Quiz, Light Up Laleham, The Panto and the Christmas Party.

Traditionally the beginning of the new year finds us stepping back to focus on fresh ideas and the organisation of our regular events.

That said, we already have a few dates to announce

Our AGM will be held on Friday June 3rd at the Lucan Pavilion at approximately 7pm

Laleham Garden Open Day will be on Saturday June 18th

The Village Quiz will be on Saturday October 15th

More details of both events will be published closer to the time

Burway Rowing Club Christen
At 11am on Sunday 17th January a crowd gathered outside the Burway Rowing Club to witness the christening of their new touring / leisure / explore rowing boat “The Laleham”.

Beautifully constructed by a specialist boat builder in Germany, The Laleham cost £10,000 and was paid for with membership money and fund raising initiatives at the club.

The picture shows an assembly of councillors, the Mayor of Spelthorne Cllr Mark Francis and Captain Kirk Langley from the club splashing the boat with a customary glass of champagne to bring her luck (I don’t think the boat got all of it!).

Unfortunately the river was too high to take to the waves but, after the formalities, the mayor took part in an unofficial “rowing machine” race, giving team members a good work out for their money. After which refreshments were served in the Club bar.

The next event at Burway Rowing Club is the small boats head on Saturday 20th February 2016. See their web site for further details.

Burway Rowing Club has members of all ages and would like to welcome anyone interested in rowing, from team players to complete beginners. If you are interested in giving the sport a try, please contact the club.

  The Laleham Christmas Party and the end of 2015!


Thanks to all who came to our final event of the year - The Laleham Christmas Party on Sunday, 13th December at the Village Hall

Feedback from all sides was that the Christmas Party was a successful, enjoyable event although we do wish that attendance had been a little higher. The Resource Centre children’s activity table was busy throughout and food and drink supplies were plentiful, (though the mulled wine was supped to the very last drop!). The quiz was a popular focus for the adults and Santa’s gifts of a party bag plus a choice of toy to each child was received with great excitement!

Any suggestions on how we could improve this event next year would be happily received. We are wondering if some of you were just a little too busy at this time of the year and possibly “Christmassed-out”?

So now we are taking a break from our regular events until the Garden Open Day in June 2016. However we will be working in the background on traffic issues and other community projects. If you have anything to contribute to our website or would like to join the LRA, please contact us using the link above.
