Confirmed today. There will be a free bouncy castle and face painting for the children. Remember there will be a visit from Santa who will hand out free gifts! There will also be a piper to pipe the Scots onto the field but I am still stuck for an idea for the English team.
Any ideas anyone?

I'm keen to come along to this. I'll be on my own though and don't know anybody -
I was in Melbourne for a few years and did use this site a lot but moved up here last year after I met a guy from the Goldie - now we've split up and I'm friendless
So a chance to hang out with some fellow Brits and have a few beers would be great
Hope to see you all there

We went for the first time last year. Everyone just mingles and yaps away freely. Tis a nice family atmosphere. You should definately come.
