Allington’s first foray into competitive walking football ended in defeat at Collingham on Friday evening. Nonetheless there was much to be pleased about. Allington fell behind early in the game and despite going 2 – 0 down started to find their rhythm as the match progressed. At the interval the score was 3 – 1 so it really was a game of two halves as Allington dominated the second period, scoring and pressing hard for the equaliser towards the end.
On Saturday 9th May Allington Village Hall will be hosting a magical gala dinner. Attendees will be welcomed with canapes and Prosecco on arrival. They will then be treated to a two course sit down meal – salmon en croute is the main dish although special diets can be catered for. Coffee will follow.
Smart dress please – black tie optional.
A magician will entertain at the tables throughout the evening and provide cabaret following the coffee. A licensed bar will be provided. Tables will seat 8 people and the cost is £30 per head. Start time 7.30 for 8.00.
