Vice Presidents Day

Vice Presidents Day 2023 will be held on the 17th of June and will consist of the usual Bowls, Snooker, Dominoes & Buffet. Starting at 12:30 and running through until finished. Please make sure you add your name to the list on the club noticeboard by the 15th of June if you wish to attend.

As with previous years in parallel with Vice Presidents Day, there will be a ladies’ lunch organised in St Annes for wives and Partners and the daytime events will be followed by an After Party held in the club once the main day is finished. This will be an evening of mixed socialising. If you know a lady who would like to attend the lunch then please add their name to the list on the club noticeboard.

Bowling Green Open

The bowling green has now re-opened after the work undertaken.  There is still some work to go so please keep an eye out for any signs regarding chemicals on the green and you MUST switch the green for wormcasts before playing otherwise we will undo all the good work put in to revive the green.

2022 Magic Trip

Following on from the last few years of magic shows we are organising a trip to see Rick Green Magician & Illusionist (as featured on Presidents Day this year) at the House Of Secrets magic bar in Blackpool on Saturday the 3rd of December (the show starts at 8 pm).  Tickets are £10 each (members and guests).  We need to confirm numbers by the 18th of November so please contact Neil Plummer directly if you wish to attend.

For those interested, we will also try to arrange a meal in Blackpool before the show.
