Berrow Football Club players pose in the 2006 CalendarBerrow Football Club has published a 2006 calendar featuring photos of its players to raise much-needed cash following the devastating fire which destroyed its changing rooms in November.

The club hopes to raise thousands of pounds by selling the small desk calendars, at £3.50 each, from Berrow News and other local newsagents.

A concert is also being planned for January 21st when local group Riverbrew wil play at the Farmer's Tavern. Tickets, costing £10 each, go on sale in the New Year.

The club's changing rooms in Parsonage Road, Berrow, were badly damaged on November 22nd when arsonists are believed to have set light to the building.

The fundraising calendarClub secretary Rachel Dyer told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The building itself was covered by insurance and will be replaced."

"But our equipment such as the white lining machine, corner flags, training balls, goal nets and bibs were not. We therefore need to raise all the money we can."

A fundraising football match will also be held against Yeovil Town Over 40s during 2006 to pull in more vital cash for the club.
