In the late 1970's, a then rare - and still unusual - idea was conceived by the curate, Fr Michael Harding, and his vicar, Fr John Ardley - i.e. to have a church - initiated licensed social club. Its objects, then as now, include providing social and recreational facilities for members, and the material and spiritual development of the parish.
The club came into being in 1980, constituted as a private members club, and is still run entirely by volunteers. It took over the newly-built extension beyond what is now the lounge at the back of the church hall. In 1992, radical changes to the layout were made to the lounge and club room, to provide improved kitchen and toilet facilities, and this is how the building is now configured.
Over the past years, the club has on the whole been very successful both socially and in providing from its varied activities substantial sums for essential improvements to the church hall building, as well as itself, and in supporting the church financially.
If the idea of our club sounds interesting to you, do come and see if you like us, we're a friendly bunch, and you don't have to be a church member. The club is open on Wednesday and Friday evenings, Sunday lunch times, and most Sunday evenings and Bank holidays. Membership fees are moderate and with concessions.
Apart from the serious business of chatting with friends over a drink after a busy day, you may like to join in the Quiz nights, Karaoke, Darts competitions, Racing Outings, and other events which are arranged during the year.
