July is proving to be a very busy month for events at the club.
Apart from the usual Hot Pot Lunch on Friday 5th July and the Friday Tea on Friday 19th July, we have the Quiz on Saturday 6th July.
The lunch of sandwiches, tea/coffee on Friday 28th June was successful and I’m sure as more and more people hear about it, it will become more popular. It will continue to be held on the 4th Friday of each month 11-1pm. The next one will be Friday 26th July so pop it in your diary and put your name down on the notice board in the club. For catering purposes please make sure your name is down by Tuesday 23rd July.
The big event for the club is the 125th Sports Gala Day on Saturday 20th July. We are planning a day of sporting skill, refreshments & fun. The Deputy Mayor Councillor Paul McQuade and Deputy Mayoress have accepted our invitation to attend our Gala Day. The day begins at 1pm and there will be special skills challenges for bowls, snooker and darts with prizes for the winners and for the wearing of the most authentic item of Victorian apparel. There will be a nominal charge of £6 per head for the buffet and a raffle with many prizes including a set of crown green bowls. Following the buffet there will be social entertainment in the form of a special celebrity “Mr & Mrs Contest”. It is hoped that as many members, and their family will support the club to make this a very memorable occasion.
SNOOKER – PHIL MILLINGTON
There has been a slow uptake of matches in the Past Presidents singles event competition, therefore Phil is delaying advertising the Millership pairs snooker until later in July.
The aim is to have both competitions by early-mid September to allow time for the posting/draw for Christmas handicap comp.
