Music provided inside and out is by our geniuses DJ with a choice of modern classics or chart toppers. Raffles are run through the afternoon to raise funds for various club teams with great prizes your support is vital and very much appreciated.

Games normally follow and have been known to be inside and outside (Weather permitting) with both children as well as adults competing. Prizes to be won or lost!

And now that we have all gained an appetite the BBQ is fired up with burgers & onions (weather permitting) or Hot Dogs from the kitchen to keep us all going. There is normally a small charge for these to cover costs.

Halloween 2021

Sunday 31st October 2021 @ 1 pm – 4pm 

Open to Members children, grandchildren & great grandchildren

Well it always goes bump in the night at the club on this misty dark moonlight sky as the flesh eating bats come out of the rafters and the witches and zombies take over on this special and very popular event of the year for our younger gremlins. There is also a potion served across the bar should you be brave enough, careful the witches are brewing.

Fancy dress is the order for the event with prizes to be won and those pumpkins that have seen so much work invested in them over the past couple of days are also up for judging by the big bad wizard or the crackling old witches.
All this scaring, especially after the nasty wizard of the DJ table Batty Barney has been playing his spell inflicted games and music to trap his victims can give one hunger. So the witches stir there cauldrons to produce the succulent hot dogs in which to capture their little wizards and witches for their tasty meal later with the odd zombie in which to pick their teeth with to remove those tiny bones after.

Those crackling old witches have also been known to make those sticky toffee apples that send you to sleep and that secret toffee recipe that stops you talking, run little ones run. All this fear for Free this year as long as names are placed on the notice board in the club house for the first 60 to gain access to the grave yard party, can’t be bad.

In June 2022, the United Kingdom will once again be in the spotlight around the world while we raise a glass in celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 70th Year Reign.

The May Bank Holiday has been moved and extended to Thursday 2nd June 2022 and with an extra Bank Holiday on Friday the 3rd of June where we will enjoy a nationwide 4-day celebration to include splendour and pageantry like only the British know how.

As a Nation our Royal Jubilee events are synonymous with street parties and gatherings up and down the country, friends and neighbours will get together to enjoy this historic event and to show support and thanks for our Monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

The Platinum Jubilee is set to be even more extraordinary than the Diamond Jubilee and that was spectacular.  We can expect to see creative displays within the Royal Household along with the latest digital technological displays that have since evolved.

To help your celebrations along Your Club’s Commitee and Staff are working on plans to make the event one to remember for the whole family and Friends.
