Fantastic Xmas Quiz set by our very own quizmaster Steve. ‘Which country has 13 Santa’s?’ Was a question not many of the 25 teams got right! The club was full for an evening of Festive Facts and we all learnt something!
Thank you Steve for creating such brilliant quizzes, thanks too to Chris & Wendy for all the work they do behind the scenes preparing nibbles for the tables, raffle prizes & selling tickets etc and thanks also to Peter & Billy behind the bar and Roger for keeping count of all the scores, quite a job with so many teams especially when 2 of them had the same name
Ho ho ho what a jolly morning at the club, our annual Xmas Fayre was a great success with lots of stalls run by volunteer members including Tombola’s, Bric-a-Brac, Cakes & Preserve’s, Jewellery, Usborne Books, Raffles, Guess the Weight of the Cake and a ‘Surprise Bottle Tombola’ run by volunteers from our Charity of the Year, Children With Cancer Fund – Polegate, monies raised on that stall go direct to the charity.
A HUGE thank you to Chris & her team of Elves who once again gave their time and energy to make it all happen, thank you to Michelle and her team Shannon & Amy who kept the restaurant running and also thanks to Pia & Robyn behind the bar. Great to see the club buzzing, Happy Christmas everyone
Did you back a winner ?
Friday night was a thrilling Race Night at the club with a crowd of 75 cheering on their horse in some exciting races.
We are very lucky to have such a committed Social Team who gave up their morning to prepare our function room for a Vintage Afternoon Tea yesterday, places were set for 50 members and their friends who all enjoyed a lovely spread as well as a ‘Teatime’ Quiz and a few simple games, ‘Toss the teabag’ ended in a play off and one lucky gentleman guessed exactly how many sweets were in the tea pot.
Our social events are becoming so popular that it is essential you buy your tickets as soon as you add your names to any list on the notice board.
Another great night of entertainment at the club last night. Members danced the night away to live music from The Likely Lads, a local duo who performed covers from 1960’s – 1980’s. As always our thanks go to Chris and her social team for all their work behind the scenes and to Peter & Billy behind the bar.
Watch out for our next events

Saturday 31st August 2019 saw our first ever barn dance held at the club and what a roaring success it was!
Beautiful bunting decorated our function room, tables were laid with gingham tablecloths and lovely little flower displays welcomed our members and guests as they arrived. A wholesome ploughmans buffet was served half way through.
The room was filled with laughter and tears and people falling over or going the wrong way all night long.

NOTHING IS REAL entertained us at the club last night with an amazing evening of Beatles hits.
The generosity of our members and friends just astounds us with a total £1100 being raised for CHILDREN WITH CANCER FUND bringing our total for the year to just over £3000. Our thanks to David & Naomi for arranging the evening, Michelle for yet another fantastic buffet, to Chloe & Sue from CWCF who helped us sell raffle tickets, Billy & Peter behind the bar what a busy night they had and to all the other volunteers behind the scenes, without who these events would not happen.
Don’t forget our next event is our Spring Fayre & Open Morning Saturday 6th April 9.30 – 2pm
Lovely Ladies Afternoon Tea at the club today, lots of chatter, laughter and fun as well as sandwiches, scones, cake and of course tea. Toss the Tea Bag, a Quiz all about Tea and an hilarious game of drawing a tea pot on a paper plate while it’s on your head kept us all amused.
A fantastic afternoon, hopefully the first of many. A huge thank you to Chris for all the organising and the beautiful tablecloths, thanks also to her helpers setting the tables with all the lovely china, the photos don’t do them justice, to Peter for the scrumptious scones and Michelle & Shannon for the sandwich’s and serving at our tables.
