Club Update August 24th 2021
Dear Members

Just a quick update of where we are.

The AGM for 2020 took place on the 16th of August.

We had a charity coffee morning on the 19th Of August, where the charity we support, The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance gave a splendid presentation, this charity receives no Government support and relies totally on donations. This was exceptionally well supported with over 80 of our members and guests attending, this raised £410.  I would like to give a special thank you to Cindy and June as well as the committee that organised the ran the event.

The Chase the Ace was won on the 13th of August, over £7,600 and the lucky winner was John Mitchel, well done John.

A Tom Jones tribute night was held on the 21st of August which was a great success being sold out, we have had lots of members on the night giving compliments.

For your diary

On bank holiday Monday 30th August the club is open from 12 o’clock until 4 o, clock there will band, children’s entertainer, food, stalls, and a raffle in aid of our charity The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

Raffle tickets are available behind the bar, there are lots of prizes and the proceeds go to the Air Ambulance.

There are live entertainments alternate Saturday nights, these will be a mixture of ticketed tribute nights and other live acts fortnightly. Please look at the flyers in the foyer.

Tickets for the Status Quo tribute band on the 25th of September, go on sale on Tuesday the 24th of August, this is likely to be popular so please come in and pay for your tickets before they all go.

On the Saturday nights with no live entertainment, we have updated the sound system, if you ask the bar staff, they can turn up the background music to play on the dance floor and turn down the lights.

Please remember that the Saturday evening dress code changed back in November, in an attempt to include more members, details are on the board.

There is a trip to see the musical Grease 11th Nov there are still a few tickets left, please speak to the Secretary.

Once we are able, we will start to organise day trips out to events etc as I am sure members will want to take part and these will be posted on the board.

If any member wishes to volunteer to organise & call the bingo on Saturday nights, please speak to the Club Manager or our Secretary Maureen then we can start this up if members wish to play.

The Club Manager is trying to encourage various teams back into the club such as skittles, darts, crib etc during the weekdays to make full use of the club.

If you know anyone who wishes to join, we are open for new members and will be having a local recruitment drive on bank holiday Monday.

Many thanks Your Chairman

Andrew
