How it works...

Following on from a very successful season on the green, with your support our attention needs to return to improving the social club and its facilities.

Just 12 months back it was decided to build on the past success of the club and reinvigorate the social side of the club following closure due to months of the pandemic.

A plan was hatched to improve facilities for members while making the place more appealing to the wider community by giving the place a general refresh with updating the social area by improving its general ambiance. Including updating the bar area, installing a wheelchair friendly loo along with a disabled parking area, resurface the car park, extending and refit the kitchen with commercial units and build an extension on the far end of the building replacing the current changing cabin. The extension will be able to accommodate various functions while also providing new changing facilities for both home and away teams.

The kitchen is complete and has received very favourable comments. The plans have been drawn for the extension and are soon to be submitted for planning consent. A wish list for the general upgrade has been compiled and is to be part of a grant application this month.

As you can see the committee is ambitious, have bold plans and committed to improving the club for members, but we do need your financial support. Especially during the close season. While we will be applying for grant funding, we will need to be able to show a contribution from our own coffers. This is where you can be so supportive and help.

We need members to join the new 50/50 Club we are starting.
It’s very simple for those not familiar with 50/50 clubs. Members make out a standing order with their bank for a monthly contribution in denominations of £10 an entry. Then a draw takes place each month with the money received being split 50% in winnings and 50% towards club funds. For example, if £500 is deposited the club receive £250 with £250 being distributed in winnings. While £10 a month is equivalent to just over 30p a day for a member throughout the year, the benefit to the club would be significant in helping us achieve our aims. Rules are attached.

In addition to the improvements being made structurally there is still the ongoing costs of maintaining the green to the high expectations we have come to expect. I therefore hope members will take part, making the 50/50 Club a success.
While rising much needed funds for the club you could find yourself being a lucky winner!!!!


Half of the money raised goes towards the upkeep of the club and half as prize money.
