Hi! So much news to pass on….I must concentrate and not leave anything out….
 
Firstly, some news from the garden. You will probably have heard from our Chairman that some children’s play equipment is currently being installed.
This is very exciting, both for the children and those of us that will sit contentedly by and simply watch the fun.  
 
Then moving inside the club, after the success of our Silent Auction at Christmas we have another ready to go. 
(The goods come from SSWU and money will go to charity.)
There’s about 16 items placed on a table close to the bar…and what a range there is ~ from a Sonic Toothbrush, to an inflatable couch, to a set of scales….
Also included are quite a few things for children. 
There’s a Silent Bidding sheet on each item and whoever places the highest bid by 6pm on Derby Day will garner that item.
 
Moving on to events at the club….. let’s start by being  positive and not complain about the rain…..…after all, it does keep our gardens watered…
So….let’s enjoy ourselves, whatever the weather….
 
Saturday 1st ~ It’s Derby Day at the Club! This means a full day of racing, drinking and eating great food from our BBQ!
There’ll be Burgers, Sausage and Chicken Kebabs plus salads at a cost of £17.
The Club will be open from mid-day so don’t dawdle! 
 
Sunday 2nd ~ The Mayor will be officially opening our new play area on Sunday 2nd June and you are cordially invited with your children or grandchildren.  Anita will be on the BBQ offering burgers, sausages and chicken kebabs along with delicious salads for £17 with a fun day deal of every adult meal purchased a children’s burger or hot dog will be given away free.
 
Friday 7th ~ It’s time for another of Darren’s fabulous Quiz Nights. 
Usual rules apply…..any number of team members allowed (although each team will lose 1 point for each).The winning team will get the prize in cash!
The quiz itself will start at 7.30pm but you’ll need to get there earlier to get a table and be able to order food from Anita!
 
Wednesday 26th June ~ Join Jimmy White at the club for an evening of talk and snooker.
Ticket prices are:
Standard package £40 which includes a two course dinner and a Q&A session. 
VIP package £65 which includes a two course dinner and a Q&A session, plus a once in a lifetime opportunity to play a frame of pool with Jimmy and a signed photo of you and the snooker legend.  
 
A couple more points to make a note of:
1) The JUNE Carvery is actually on Father’s Day 16th June……best not miss booking that one.
 
2) The Book Shelf is doing well…….although the shelves are still full I notice that the books are changing….which, of course, means that its being used well.
(I picked up one ~ The Perfect Lie ~ which is really getting to me as I yet can’t figure out ‘whodunnit’. When I do I’ll put it back on the shelf for someone else to be puzzled.)
 
And finally …some words about a very important, but not often talked about, role at the club…that of Almoner.
The club has always appointed an Almoner so that should a member be having difficulties, whether re health, financial or social etc, there is always someone to turn to 
who would try to assist, offer advice and help whilst maintaining absolute confidentiality. 
Dee Stannard is our current Almoner, someone who is definitely perfectly fitted for such a role. 
Should you need to contact Dee you will find her contact number on the board.
 
That’s it from me for now,
Cheers
Chris
