A message from Maxie

Hi ! A little gathering to celebrate the 70th birthday of Major Carr at Browns Restaurant, Old Jury on the 24th of Jan 2017 It was a true Virginia Road members crowd. Some have not seen each other for over 10 to 20 years. I remember them in their younger years joining the club, a long time ago, as most of them are now 65 to 72 years old. Those presents were Danny Shaves, Tony Ring, Paul Marsh, Terry Bradshaw, Max Lea MBE, Michael Lowery and of course Major the birthday boy. Following the toast to Major we all settled down to chit chat and laughter over old times, and how much we all owed to the club for the friendship it gave to us all in those early years to become better men. After about four hours the time had come to depart to north, south, east, and west of the city and we made our goodbyes in good spirits and laughter. A good time was had by all and we send our regards to all.
