I’ve been asked by the club’s committee to send you an update on events at the club but, as Mary is not available at the moment, I have to use my year-old email list. So, huge apologies if you would rather not hear about club events from me….if that’s the case please let me know and I’ll take you off the list. 

All emails will be sent as Blind Copies which means the your email addresses will not be shared.

So, into September’s Diary Dates:

Saturday 21 September ~ Private Party in Main Bar.

Saturday 28 September ~ “Tina Turner’ Tribute Night. 7 for 7.30pm.

Menu : 

Steak and Ale Pie with Seasonal Vegetables, followed by Fruit Salad + Ice Cream or Chocolate Sponge + Custard,

Cheese + Biscuits, Coffee.       ‘Tina” will sing from 9pm.

Tickets are £21-50p each and there’s a poster on the board ready and waiting for signatures.

(The first 44 will be seated in the Main Bar.)

Sunday 29 September ~ Private Party in Main Bar. The Back Bar will, of course, be available for members.

Apart from the above events there are also different things that go on in the club:

The Darts group meet on Mondays but not until October as that’s when the next season starts. 

Roger Hicks is the guy to contact if you fancy joining up.

There’s a Bridge group that meet in the Back Bar on Tuesday evenings. Vic Collier is the contact on this one.

Another Bridge group meets up on Wednesday lunchtimes. 

Cribbage is usually played on a Tuesday and Snooker, of course, can be played any day.

Friday’s ~ Club Draw Night. Always a very pleasant evening with pals for a Lager or a Lemonade, a Beer or a Beaujolais (or whatever), and one of the best times to get to meet other members. We tend to get together from about 8.15 onwards. Much of the funds raised during the year for extras at the club are gathered on Friday evenings via Ray’s raffles, bottle auctions and Ognib*….and lots of good humour attends too. The Draw this week is worth £230!

* Don’t know what Ognib is? Best way to find out is to come along……

Sunday’s ~ Club open from 12 noon until 4pm. This is a time when lots of folk drop in for a drink and a chat around the table……add your voice to the debate on current affairs, the weather, the latest expose in the newspapers….in fact, almost anything that catches the attention of those around the table. 

Much laughter ensues, that’s for sure!

And finally ~ Lunch specials this coming week are Old School Corned Beef Hash and Beer Battered Cod Goujons.

I reckon that’s enough to keep us all busy for now so I’ll sign off…..
