The clocks will soon be going back and the nights drawing in but there’s still plenty of reason to be cheerful as Worcestershire CCC’s ever popular Christmas lunches are on the horizon.

Blackfinch New Road will be once again the place to be to celebrate the festive season with Christmas lunches taking plan in the Graeme Hick Pavilion on three successive Sundays – December 2, 9 and 16.

A three course meal – plus tea or coffee and mince pies – costs just £30 with a two course meal available for £25.

It’s a treat not to be missed in the build-up to Christmas and is always well attended by Worcestershire members and supporters or anyone wanting a meal to remember.

But we’re already filling up fast so the advice is BOOK NOW by contacting the Events Team at New Road.

They can be contacted by phone on 01905 337940 or via email at events@wccc.co.uk.

Meals can be booked anytime between 12 noon and 3pm and we look forward to hearing from you. You won’t be disappointed.
