Election of New Committee

The election for a new committee will be held over the period 5th April to 7th April (noon to 2pm and 7pm to 9pm). The results will be announced around about 6pm on 8th April, 2024.  

Dave Lucas’ nomination for President was unopposed and Barbara Hardie’s nomination for Vice-President was unopposed. However, there are 24 members seeking to fill the twelve committee places available. Their names are as follows:


R. Oliver                    M. Allen         K. Clements     T. Cursons

J. Duly                       D. Saines      S. Russo            M. Hammond

K. Willmott                P. Warren      M. Willmott         S. Choycha

R. Coshall                 N. Buckley    P. McDonald     P. Joy

M. Lakin                    R. Pye            J. O’Driscoll      C. Skynner

A. Wells                     A. Stearn       M. Fox                 B. Gaston


Steve Pearce has decided not to run for the new committee. I am sure that all members, including myself, would like to give Steve a big thank you for his service on the committee and for all the other duties that he has performed for the Club over the years.



The next Karaoke night will be on Easter Sunday (31st March). The following one will be on the May Day bank holiday Sunday (5th May). It is anticipated that the Karaoke nights will then resume on the last Sunday of the month slot.



The Club is looking for a new doorkeeper, initially on a temporary basis. Doorkeepers are normally on duty Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and Sunday lunchtime.


Membership Renewals

Although the “grace” period for membership renewals has passed, we are still accepting membership renewals. This is in recognition that many members have been unable to get down to the Club due to ill health or for other reasons.
