FORTY-SIX Ash­ford women fly to Ma­jorca next month with a fiendish plan to beat the Ger­mans. But they’re not go­ing to the World Cup. They’re off to party at the coastal nightspot of Ma­galuf and reckon Ger­man guests there won’t stand a chance when it comes to hog­ging the sunbeds. Group mem­ber Clare Gross­man, of Hold­en­hurst, Wash­ford Farm said: “You could say we have an in­depth squad, af­ter all there are 46 of us and you can’t get any larger than that.” The trip is the brain­child of Les­ley Soper, of Brook­field Road, South Ash­ford, who will be cel­e­brat­ing her 50th birth­day along with Kim­ber­ley Good­ing who has ‘amal­ga­mated’ her hen night with Les­ley’s birth­day. They fly out for the long week­end trip on Thurs­day, June 3, and they’re pretty con­fi­dent of win­ning places on the sunbeds ahead of Ger­man hol­i­day­mak­ers, who are re­garded as be­ing early ris­ers with a rep­u­ta­tion among Brits for hog­ging the lounge chairs. “We’ve got a so­lu­tion for ev­ery­thing be­cause of our large num­bers,” said Les­ley, a civil ser­vant. When they ar­rive all the party’s 46 tow­els will be given to Deb­bie Havell, 47, from Ken­ning­ton, to keep in her room. “Deb­bie is a very early riser, get­ting up be­tween 6am and 6.30am, and she’s tasked to put ev­ery one of the 46 tow­els on a sunbed to re­serve them,” Les­ley ex­plained. The com­bined group are not only friends but many are re­lated. They’ll be stay­ing for three nights in Ma­galuf, said to be one of the world’s wildest nightspots, with all-night par­ty­ing. It’s sit­u­ated on the south west coast of Ma­jorca. Not a stone of plan­ning has been left un­turned. Among the party is tee­to­taller Linda Good­ing, mum of bride to be Kim­ber­ley. “Linda’s role is to make sure we all get home,” said Les­ley. And Clare added: “Oh, yes, and we’re tak­ing plenty of han­gover reme­dies with us too.”
