November 4th - Coffee Morning at the Village Hall

A big THANK YOU to all who took part in today's Coffee Morning, and to all who gave raffle and tombola prizes, books, puzzles, cakes etc.etc. It was a fun morning, and we raised well over £400 for the Club Funds. 

Greyhounds at Brighton - 1st November

What a good day this was. The weather was great, which made the journey to Brighton very enjoyable. The staff at the Coral Stadium were as usual very helpful, especially to those who never really did understand the language of betting. The food was good, and the racing itself - good if your dog won, perhaps not so good for the losers.  Thanks must go to Roger Greer and Penny Kenward for organising the day, and to those who supported it. Hopefully we can run this event again next year. 

Luncheon at the Brickwall Hotel

What a lovely occasion this was. There were 43 of us at the Luncheon including both old and new members. It was especially good to see Hazel Brown after all the problems she has had during the past few months. As ever,The Brickwall Hotel did us proud with great food and service. So many thanks to Julio and his team.  After the lunch David Radford had organised the presentation of the trophies for 2017. There were lots of happy people with shields, cups and individual trophies to take home. Congratulations to all the winners and to David for arranging the presentation so well. Our thanks must also go to our Chairman, John Eveleigh, for organising the event.

I suppose we will have to start practising again for next years competitions, but I think we need to get over Christmas first, but first you can enjoy the pictures.

The Mermaid League

The final games have now been played and I am pleased to tell you that Fairlight finished  in 3rd place. The winners were Staplecross with Iden in 2nd place. Congratulations to both Staplecross and Iden, and also to Captain Colin and all the players from Fairlight that took part in this years League. You did the Club proud.

 September 23rd - President verses Chairman

All too soon the final social event of the year was played this Saturday. It was of course the President Team verses the Chairmans Team. With the 2 protagonists squaring up to each other before the match began, it was bound to be an intensive affair. We watched the scores going back and forth for  the 18 ends, but I have to report that our Chairman won the laurels. There was not much in it with both teams winning 2 rinks, but with the Chairman's team scoring 6 more points than the President's, the result was not in doubt. It was a very enjoyable game with wine before the match , and after the match delicious cakes (supplied by a number of members). The President graciously accepted defeat, and was congratulated by the Chairman for being such a gentleman. The match would not have been possible without the input of many people, but I would like to highlight the Green itself. It looks a picture, and played as well as any we have played on this season. Congratulations to Colin F and his team for all the work done to give us such a great facility.

It was with great pleasure that our Chairman, John Eveleigh,  handed over a cheque for £1000 to The Alzheimer's Society represented by Jayne Stephens. This was made possible by your generous support at The Open Tournament.
