KYRAN BRACKEN CONFIRMED TO HOST 2018 AWARDS DINNER

The FeRFA Awards Dinner will be a glittering event in the Park Suite and an ideal opportunity to entertain customers, reward staff or enjoy a pre-Christmas get together with friends.

Our host for the Awards evening is former England rugby player Kyran Bracken.

Kyran played rugby for England for 10 years, gaining 50 caps. After retiring Kyran swapped his rugby shirt for all-in-one lycra and agreed to appear on ITV’s Dancing on Ice. He went on to win the contest. The spray tan and sparkly outfits clearly made their mark – Kyran’s passion for ice skating continues. But he’s also stayed close to rugby as a coach at Leicester.

The 2018 FeRFA Best Practice Awards will be presented after dinner and we will be honouring this year’s Apprentice Graduates with the presentation of their NVQ diplomas and certificates. FeRFA graduation is supported by CITB.

You can then dance the evening away or enjoy a drink in the Park Suite Bar.

The cost for the dinner is £75 (plus VAT) with discounts available for tables of 10+.
Dress: Black Tie

If you would like to attend the AGM and/or the Awards Dinner, please complete this booking form and email to secretariat@ferfa.org.uk.

FeRFA GOLF DAY & INDUSTRY EXHIBITION DATES 2018

The FeRFA Golf Day –  Friday 21 September at Erewash Valley Golf Club

The day is open to all members and you are welcome to bring customers and colleagues along with you.

The Erewash Valley Golf Club full deserves its reputation as a top class venue with a well maintained 18 hole course aling with a welcoming clubhouse.

The first tee-off time is 9.30 for a Stableford 4 balls competition. Bacon butties and refreshments will be available before the start at 9.00. Play will be in teams for four, so ideally participants are encouraged to put together their own teams but we will of course be able to make up teams if this is not possible.

The cost for the day (including breakfast and prize) is £40 per player. Please email your booking to Tom Dossett –  tomdossett@remmers.co.uk before Friday 6 July.
