Council’s ruby year

It’s a very special year for Broxtowe Borough Council in 2014 as it celebrates its ruby (40th) anniversary.

To mark the occasion, this year’s annual charity ball will be ruby themed when it takes place on Saturday April 5, in aid of the Broxtowe Mayor’s two chosen charities, Treetops Hospice and the Helpful Bureau, Stapleford.

Tickets are on sale now for the black-tie evening, hosted at the award-winning Nottingham Belfry Hotel.

There will be a drinks reception and a three course meal followed by a dance and a raffle. Tickets are £32 each. Call 0115 917 3210, or eemail
