About Us - The History

When the village hall was in the early stage of construction in the early 1990’s it was discussed about the possibility of forming a social club there when it was finished.

A meeting was called inviting people to come along to gauge the interest of forming a social club. There was quite a lot of interest shown in establishing a club in the new village hall, and so a committee was formed to look into what was required to set up a social club, with all the committee putting £10 in a kitty to cover initial expenses.

Discussions took place with the parish council with the possibility of using part of the hall for establishing a social club where it is today.

Once the new village hall was complete, we started using the small hall for holding small events such as whist drives, bingo and cheese & wine nights. These were all well supported but it was soon realised we needed to raise more money to achieve our vision of a permanent club room.

We decided to hold a dance using both halls, using trestle tables for a bar. A deal was negotiated with Greene King who supplied the beer and coolers and local band Sounds Imperial provided the music. The event was a sellout and we made £2000 profit on the night.

This allowed us to rent the small hall from Friday night to Sunday night and install a bar in the main hall with a small bar where the door is leading to the main hall bar.

In time the social clubs membership increased and it was clear we needed to establish a permanent clubroom, other organisations were using the small hall during the rest of the week and the only way we could do this was to provide them with alternative arrangements, so we ran more events and raised enough money to build what is now the committee room, allowing us to take over the small hall permanently as it is today.

More dances were held in the main hall with smaller acts in the social club, bingo continued Fridays and darts and pool teams followed.

As more funds became available we were able to make the social club more appealing and comfortable, enabling us to further modernise the club by installing better seating and a bar and cellar upgrade.

The use of the club for providing the bars for weddings and private functions in the main hall boosted the club's funds meaning we were able to extend the club to establish the pool room.

Over the years we have had lots of great entertainment including The Searchers - Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch - Bay City Rollers - Jimmy Jones - Roy Chubby Brown, and tribute acts including Peat Loaf, U2, Abba and Robbie Williams.

The club is a lasting tribute to all those who gave their time for nothing both those who served on the committee and members alike, some of which are unfortunately no longer with us.
