Long Eaton Round Table are pleased to announce the details of this years charter night!
To celebrate Rob Murdy’s year as chairman members of L.E.R.T treated him to his very own Little Britain experience. He was quite surprised at being cast as Andy as the smart money was on a Captain Manning Outfit. Dad’s army aside he arrived in great style from a stretched pink limousine, thanks go to Darren Hickling for arranging the chairman’s taxi . After a few drinks around Long Eaton we departed for the next location where a challenge awaited.
L.E.R.T members were then set the task to try and eat the amazing Flaming Burger Challenge at the Blue Bell in Attenborough. A flaming feast not for the faint hearted!
The Flaming Challenge Burger is packed with:
- Two flame-grilled 12oz beef burgers
- Two breaded chicken fillets
- Spicy chilli beef
- Melted Cheddar cheese
- Crispy bacon
- Onion rings
- And served with a giant helping of chips!
They cleared there plate and got onto the Hall of Flame, complete with a ” I beat the Burger certificate ” I have been told on good authority that Steve was the only one who had a desert as well, tremendous. A fantastic ending for Rob’s year in the Chair.

Long Eaton Round Table held their AGM in early April, which marked the changeover in the club’s year. Chairman for 2010-11 Robert Westerman handed over to Rob Murdy, and an exciting election for Vice Chairman resulted in Ian Adkin getting the nod. The four recently chucked out members received their commemorative tankards.
Chairman Rob thanked all the committee and club for supporting him in what was another successful year for the club.
2010-11 President Graham Hill gave a short lecture on the various uses of the word “up”, and how confusing it is, and finished by saying his time in Round Table is now up. He handed the honour of President to Stewart Cliff.
The reins of leadership for Long Eaton Round Table were formally handed over at the club’s AGM in April. Outgoing Chairman Mark Elm congratulated new chairman Robert Westerman. The honorary positions of Club President also changed hands, with Shaun Brennan passing the chain of office over to Graham Hill. Students of LERT history will note that this was a repeat of their respective years as club Chairmen several years ago.
Vice Chairman for this year is Rob Murdy.
Final honours of the night went to outgoing veteran and of Round Table Robert Jones, whose time in Round Table has finally come to an end after many years of distinguished service. (Ed: at least, that’s what he paid me to write).
We will be holding an evening of bar games (darts, skittles, pool) for a club membeship night on Tuesday 29th September. Anybody interested in finding out a bit more about Round Table in Long Eaton is most welcome to come along and join in the banter. We start at 7-30 for 8pm at the Hole in the Wall pub.
