Kevin Turner Celebration Night

Kevin Turner

Some sad, but not unexpected news this week, as Kevin Turner announced he is stepping back a little from what seems like a lifetime’s commitment to Wythall. If you were to list his current roles, you would start with Wythall Tennis Club, slip gracefully through Wythall Community Association charity trustee and past the WCA Management Team. Beer and Cider festival barman. Fireworks and Fun Run marshal. There’s not a lot he doesn’t do.

One of the more recent crowning achievements of the Park, is Sally and the annual Santas’s Sleigh. No-one really knows who Santa is, the Christmas equivalent of The Stig (although we are told that Larissa the Naughty Elf has sat on his lap, so she might), but without naming names, I can confirm that Kevin’s ‘stepping back’ means there will be auditions for the man in the red suit come November. Big shoes (well, black wellies) to fill!

We’ve decided that we need a party to celebrate some of Kevin’s achievements, so Wythall Tennis Club and a very grateful WCA and WCC invite you and your family to join us in the Britannia Room on the evening of Saturday April 13. Amongst other shenanigans, there will be a skittles competition, a pool competition and for those who would prefer just to relax, the bar will be open.

So we can gauge numbers, please email if you and your family can attend.
