BAM EVENTS IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER
Celebrate 'Guy Fawkes' with a Bowling Night Out at the NiBox in Monaco.... Another evening of bowling has been organised at the NiBox Centre in Monaco on Wednesday 5th November. The evening will begin at 6.30 pm for a prompt start at 7 pm. This gives plenty of time to change into ‘bowling’ shoes (provided by NiBox). The price includes hire of shoes, two sessions of bowling and one free drink. Prizes will be given for the winning team and also for the most original team name to do with Guy Fawkes! So start thinking about original names! We will set up teams on the night unless you come with a ready made team (6 in a team) Price for members €15 and for non-members €20.

NEW: "BAM CHRISTMAS FAIR"
This year the Committee decided that we would not participate as an Association in the annual Kermesse Oecuménique and would organise our own smaller event. Father Marc and Father Bill have very kindly and generously allowed us use of the St Charles’ Church hall on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday 13th and 14th December. There will be a variety of stands: such as gifts, accessories, parfumerie, jewellery, candles, brocante, toys etc. We will have a Christmas/British items stand – puddings, cakes, stationery, mince pies, teas, etc. As well as our home produce stand selling items cakes, biscuits, jams and chutneys. We will also be serving tea and coffee, mulled wine, mince pies and cakes and much more!
So that we can make this a success we are asking for the following:
¨ Help – for the collection of items and gifts and also setting up on the day.
¨ Provision of items for all the stands and in particular anything from the UK towards the British stand.
¨ Helpers for both days on the stands and serving in the eatery section
¨ Offers of help for the Santa Grotto and any other additional activities.
Any contributions can be delivered to the FFC (on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month between 2 – 5 pm), or items can be collected so please contact email@example.com.
In fact, any help or ideas will be gratefully received.
