The Great Grafton Auction & Summer Party, 2nd JULY 7pm The Summer party goes supersize!!! This year, in honour of the Euros, the Summer party adopts an aura of French Class… Our chefs are putting together a fine buffet dinner menu, along with a reception full of bubbles. Throw in prizes, a party until the early hours, and you have the ingredients for a legendary Grafton Summer Bash. Think Paris, think long summer nights on the French Riviera, and dress up in a summer outfit to grace the occasion. What makes the Party Supersize? The Great Grafton Auction - due to start at 8pm. After some amazing generosity from our members we are very proud to present a dazzling collection of Lots for you to bid on. The plan is to raise £6000-£10000 to assist the floodlighting of Courts 1 and 2 and upgrading of the squash building (heating/insulation etc) and make The Grafton an even better sports facility. How does it work? If you cannot attend you can enter your bids either: - By e-mail: - At the folder behind the bar We will monitor the pre-bids and incorporate them into the Auction. Plus we will inform bidders of progress to give you the opportunity to up your bid pre-July 2. We will give you visuals/links to the Lots very soon to help you decide on bids. Group/collective bids are of course very welcome, club together to win any of the lot below.
