Celebrations as new club opens
RAAFA’s new club at AFME was officially opened with a bang on Tuesday 27 October.
A sundowner party was held to mark the club opening its doors for the first time, with a vast array of finger food and drinks, as well as entertainment, which saw residents get up on the dance floor and celebrate in style.
And the feedback from residents has been nothing short of glowing, with patrons enjoying everything about the new facility, not least the eight brand-new on tap beers and new wine menu, which is available at the three separate bars.
Simon Elton-Bott, Club Manager, says the opening was a fantastic success, with residents excited to experience the new state-of-the-art facilities.
“Our launch night was a fabulous success, with residents telling us they loved the new look facilities which incorporate so much - from our new sports bar with pool table, to our alfresco entertainment area, where residents can relax in our new outdoor lounges and look out over the bowling greens,” says Simon.
“The club’s opening is really a combination of many years of planning and building, and everyone involved is so excited that we are now officially open and able to welcome our AFME community.
“Our new function rooms have been designed for both private and corporate events, and we know they are going to be the setting for some really wonderful events, particularly as they have capacity for up to 200 guests.”
The official club launch also saw the unveiling of a new restaurant menu incorporating favourites like fish and chips and club burgers, to quality steaks and assorted shared platters. Residents can also order a range of assorted cakes, salads, wraps and sandwiches, which will be available throughout the day, as well as takeaway coffees.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for everyone at AFME, we really are making history in the opening of our new facilities, and there is a real sense of excitement in the air at the moment,” Simon adds.
“For anyone who hasn’t yet visited us, we can’t wait to welcome you.”
