Since Christmas the club has sold hundreds of new RWBRFC bobble hats to add to those already in circulation around the town.

So this year we have decided to set you all a challenge. During your 2023 travels, please take a photo of yourself wearing your Bassett bobble hat in some distant or exotic location, doing something unusual (family-friendly activities only!) or next to somebody famous. Then send us a copy!

The winning photo will be judged by Chris Elias and Martin Palmer from Imagine Cruising and will be announced at this year’s Boxing Day Bash. The lucky winner will win a hamper of luxury goodies which will set you up for 2024.

To get your creative juices flowing, here are a few of our first entrants: 

Chris Elias visiting an ancient pyramid in the Mexican jungle


Martin Palmer at the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro


Dawn Mccafferty training in the pool


Barry Joseph snorkelling off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica
