Charlie James     29 March at 20:51 ·

Another wonderful, wonderful afternoon spent at Roswyn House today, the home of the Grand Order of Lady Ratlings. The archives were opened and there was much to see from as far back as 1928. We had a full house with great company. Thank you so very much to the ladies who laid on a fabulous lunch for so many. Can hardly wait for our next event. There's always a special welcome for everyone at Roswyn.

Anna Golden Yes Charlie it was a fantastic afternoon. The House girls are amazing. Here's to the next event! xx

Charlie James They truly are Anna all that hard work to make our events so memorable. I've come to love Roswyn over the years, I really have. Aren't we lucky To have has such a kind benefactor in Sir Billy Butlin & the continuing support of Lady Butlin and her family?

Anna Golden Yes we really are- it's a real 'family' house! xx

Tricia Court Congratulations to our Curator Billie Roper for her displays celebrating the 50th anniversary of Roswyn. Our archive books are always available to look through if you pop in any Tuesday or Friday when we're there. You will be amazed at the wonderful talent we had and the fabulous talent we have now.

LOCAL COFFEE MORNINGS:  If you are not able to attend Roswyn's functions but would still like to help out with our fundraising, then why not host your own 'Local' coffee morning in your area?  These used to be very popular years ago with members of our Order organising them, and many of us will especially remember the ones organised by the late PQ Marie Calores at her house in Enfield. 
All you have to do is invite any Ratlings who live in your area (The Essex Girls - The Sussex Girls - The Norfolk Girls - The Scottish Girls - or anywhere else in the UK where Lady Ratlings may live!), and then get them to bring along some family and friends as well.  You provide the tea/coffee and biscuits, maybe another Ratling would bring some home made cakes, another one maybe a nice couple of Raffle prizes and you have a lovely afternoon and raise some funds for Roswyn's restoration.

BIRTHDAY RATLINGS!
New for 2014 onwards each month, Ratlings with birthdays in the same month can host a joint birthday party at Roswyn.

Bring along your own cake/food/drinks and make a £50 donation to Roswyn for the use of the House and Garden for the whole day. A fantastic and economical way for several Ratlings to hold one party together to celebrate all their birthdays in one go!


Call Chairman of the House, P. Pr. Billie Roper to arrange your date.

ROSWYN FOR SMALL PRIVATE FUNCTIONS
Roswyn is available for Lady Ratlings and Water Rats for celebration parties, rehearsals and auditions, social nights, funeral receptions.
There are also some overnight/short stay rooms available for staying in when you are in London to save on the cost of expensive London hotel prices
