The Village Club,

at the heart of the community


Progress continues at The Village Club as we move into Spring.  Band events continued with Sugartown holding a gig for Valentine’s Day in February and a very successful St Patrick’s Day event featuring The Raisers playing an excellent mix of folk music and this year there was genuine draught Guinness to complement the Irish feel for the evening.

Thanks from the Committee go to Dougie Mack,  Simon Mack, Mark Wilson and Martin Helliwell who renovated a portion of the wooden fencing at the rear of the club during March.

Thanks too go to Les Weatherill who organised the club’s new signage recently.

At the end of January The Village Club held its AGM. The meeting received the resignation of Paul Hill from the Committee who, after many years Paul decided to take a break from Committee membership.  The Committee wishes to thank Paul for his efforts over the years. Ian Ellston and Joanne Nottingham were elected onto the Committee during the meeting. The meeting also ratified an increase in membership subscriptions for the year 2014.  Subscriptions are now £15 per year, excellent value at less than 5p per day.

Preparations for Le Grande Depart, Le Tour de France are advancing and The Village Club’s Chairman, Paul Evans and Stewardess, Mandy Helliwell were interviewed on Stray FM discussing the history of The Village Club, how it was associated with cycling at the start of the 20th Century, being called The Cycle Hotel at that time and events The Village Club aims to run over Le Tour weekend of 4th, 5th and 6th July. A podcast of Paul and Mandy's interview with StrayFM can be found on the web here  
http://cml.sad.ukrd.com/audio/250380.mp3 . Their interview starts 13 minutes into the podcast.

Over Le Tour weekend the club aims to run a series of events

It is also hoped to hold charity fundraising activities over the weekend too. On the subject of fundraising, in three separate fund raising events held during January The Village Club is very pleased to have raised a total of £242.60 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Additionally, money was raised on quiz nights which has funded the purchase of two radio microphones to help with presenting the quiz and is well on the way to paying for a baby changing facility; no, not a baby exchange facility no matter how much you may wish that sometimes, but a wall mounted unit to provide a clean and convenient place to change a baby’s nappy!

Coming up at The Village Club is Band, Red on Blonde, 8pm 5th April, 2014, back by popular demand to play their mix of covers, rock and pop.
So if you want to join The Village Club and benefit from the facilities it offers, simply call in and see Mandy or Martin.
