The Village Club,
at the heart of the community
A happy New Year from The Village Club, Green Hammerton.
The Club had a very busy festive period with members and guests of all ages enjoying a series of events.
First amongst these was the Children's Christmas Party and Club Christmas Draw with the party drawing the attendance of a very special guest. Despite the heavy workload inevitable just before Christmas, Santa took time off from his labours to help distribute Christmas presents to the Children attending the party. This was followed the same evening by the Members' Christmas Draw. This year £800 worth of prizes were distributed to the numerous lucky winners and a very merry evening was had by all.
The Village Club New Year's Eve party with local group The Guvnors was extremely successful with many a member feeling slightly worse for wear on New Year's Day.
On the sporting front The Village Club Pool B Team finished first in Boroughbridge District Winter League 2 gaining promotion, whilst the A Team finished third in the same league, a creditable performance all round.
Congratulations to both Steve Ross and Eric Corser for respectively winning the Jimmy Jenks Memorial Pool and Dominoes Competitions.
The 11th of January saw Mandy and Martin Helliwell celebrating one year of Stewardship at the club with another party featuring Elite Entertainment a duo from Knottingley offering a mix of songs, music quizzes and karaoke, including some very dubious appearances from Freddie Mercury, Madonna, George Michael and Cher tribute acts.
The Club recently extended the selection of Real Cask Ales with the installation of a third hand pull pump. Now the Club's John Smith's Cask pump is complimented by beers selected from local brewery Rudgate on one pump and a variety of guest cask ales from around the country on the third pump. Furthermore, draught Guinness has been reinstated rounding off a great choice of beers, stout, lager and ciders, all at reasonable prices.
Coming up is The Village Club Annual General Meeting which commences at 6.30pm on 31 January in the Club Function Room. A wee Burns Supper Snack and dram for attendees.
Finally, The Village Club has launched its own new website.
