What a successful event – we have raised over £1000 for club funds.

A big thank you to everyone who gave generously to this event in so many different ways.

Huge thanks also to those who helped set up and man the various stalls, and also to all those people who came along and gave their support.

Grateful thanks too, to Michelle, Kim, Charlie and the bar staff who worked so hard keeping everyone fed and watered.

Beatles Tribute in aid of Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate

On Saturday (7th March 2020) a local band, NOTHING IS REAL, entertained us for the 2nd year running with a fantastic evening of Beatles music. Their generosity and that of our members and friends continues to astound us as we raised £840 on the night for Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate  our Captain’s Charity of the Year. A raffle was held with 1st prize being the only ever authorised biography of the Beatles by Hunter Davies and 2nd prize was another book by the same author called The Beatles Lyrics and is the story behind their music. A big thank you to everyone involved in the evening, you know who you are.

“What’s On In March” . . .

Saturday 7th at 7pm is Beatles Tribute Night, £10 entry fee to include a buffet.  ‘Nothing Is Real’ are a popular local band who do not charge for playing their gigs so proceeds from the night will go to Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate who once again are our Captain’s Charity of the Year. Tickets are on sale from behind the bar.

Saturday 14th March is our Captains Charity Bowls Tournament. Entry fee £5.  This will be the same as last years massively successful event when 72 bowlers of all abilities played for the Captains Trophy and Captains Medal and the Club was buzzing all day. Mixed ability teams will be selected by Captain Peter. The event starts at 9.30am for the preliminary rounds followed by the knockout rounds in the afternoon. The bar and Restaurant will be open all day for refreshments. Social Members are more than welcome. All proceeds to Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate. Please register and pay the entry fee behind the bar.

Our ever popular Race Night returns on Friday 20th, 7:30pm.

F V A G I K M Y ???

Yesterday saw the club put on another beautiful Afternoon Tea, tables were laid with beautiful embroidered tablecloths and vintage china, members were served with a selection of sandwiches, scones & cakes and during the afternoon had a bit of fun with a quiz & a few table games. Toss the Teabag tested skill 😉 then everyone had to write the funniest telegram sentence using 8 letters taken randomly from the alphabet and using them in order so – F V A G I K M Y became Five Vicars Arresting Goats In Kinky Muddy Yfronts, hilarious. Well done to Chris and her team for a great time.

Taste the Difference

Quiz master Steve has done it again, another brilliant quiz night attended by 120 eager quizzers. An interesting twist to one of the rounds with a ‘Taste the Difference’ section which was great fun!

It was a very close contest with team ‘I am Spartacus’ finishing 2nd by 1 point to team ‘Young & Hot’. Team ‘The Naughty Corner’ were their usual rowdy selves.

Big thank you not only to Steve for all the time and effort involved in putting the quiz together but also to Chris for her energy, time & organisation of the raffle, winners prizes & preparing the nibbles, Roger ‘the calculator’ without whom we wouldn’t know who’d won! those who helped set up the room and helped during the evening, Wendy for selling the raffle tickets, Peter & Julie behind the bar and to all those members who stayed behind afterwards to put all the tables & chairs back in place.

Eye’s Down For a Full House

Great turn out for our Fish and Chip Bingo night last Friday, lots of banter, lovely supper, a very enjoyable evening all round. Thanks to ‘Caller Chris’ and everyone else who helped make the evening such a success.
