The Social Committee wanted to celebrate our very first year of running the ‘200 Club’ to thank everyone for the amazing support and purchasing the numbers.
We had a glorious evening with warm sunshine allowing the Bar French windows to be flung open for drinks and socializing on the terrace.
Prosecco, red and white wine was flowing and the most delicious Canapes, which our kitchen staff produced, were handed round, all sponsored by 5 very generous anonymous sponsors!
The atmosphere was just one big happy party !!
Rob Bartlett, SOCCOM Hon. Chairman, gave an introduction and then Keith Brewer, Hon. Treasurer gave an excellent power point explanation of how the ‘200 Club’ had gone for the first year, including the improvements we had done to the interior of the Club House and the things we are proposing to do in the coming year, with the Directors approval.
He also asked if there were one or two people, in the Club who would consider putting their names forward to be on the Social Committee, as a change would be good to freshen up ideas, and some of the existing committee members have been there for 2 years and would like to step aside.
Our party was also to heighten awareness to other members of Stratford Oaks about the 200 Club and to ask all those who are already numbers holders and have not paid by Standing Orders, to be aware that, when their year is up, they need to re pay for the forthcoming year. The Treasurer finds it more convenient if people can join by using BACS or Standing Order if that is possible.
Towards the end of the evening there were two draws. The first being another extremely generously donated 2 x £100 prizes for anyone attending this party.
The lucky winners were:
Sylvia Penson and Sue Tame
Then the June 200 Club draw was done (albeit a little early). And the lucky winners were:
Jacki Payne £200
John Elson £100
Keith Johnson £50
Mike Clarke £25
On that happy note the evening came to an end, everyone having had a very good time. Many thanks to our wonderful Sponsors and to all that attended!
