HIBC Report for June 2016 Bruce Mowatt HIBC publicity
The club was very pleased with the support received from the Gable Head Co-op shoppers on Saturday 21st May, who generously contributed to a total collection of £178.06.
The clubs stall at the Lions Donkey Derby event on Saturday 28th May was a great success. The fine weather was an added bonus, and ensured the event was well attended. The tombola tickets at £1 each with a chance to win all sorts of good prizes, went very quickly, combine this with the Bric a Brac, and cake stall, we raised a total of £250 on the day. A big thankyou to all the Islanders and visitors who contributed.
The sell-out evening show on Saturday 28th May at the HIDS theatre featured Isabel Hudson who entertained with a 15 minutes’ selection of her favourite songs, and then an excellent performance by the Hayling College Glee Club. The talent shown by all the singers and dancers, featuring songs from the London Shows: - Joseph / Grease / Oliver / Les Miserables, was very well appreciated by the audience, a standing ovation ensured an encore from the singers. The musical Director Neil Ogley handed control and stage management of the show to the pupils of Hayling College, who are then responsible for all aspects of the evening entertainment. Well done the Hayling College Glee Club. A total of £450 was generously contributed to HIBC.
In recognition of the talent shown by the Hayling Glee club. The HIBC club is considering awarding trophies for music and drama, to the male and female student selected by Hayling college, considered to be worthy of the awards. Will keep you updated on the progress.

Mama Mia and Dancing Queen are just two of the songs you have the opportunity to sing and dance too, performed by the great Abba tribute act, who will be on stage for a total of 90 minutes (performed in two forty-five minute sessions). This is during the evening of Saturday July 9th at the ever popular HIBC annual barbeque. Combine this with all you can eat local sourced Burgers and Sausages with all the trimmings, include a Spit roast, add a disco, with beer, soft drinks and wine for sale, then it must be the event to attend. Tickets cost £17 available from Club members, and the following outlets: - Cards for Occasions / Community centre / Foots Estate Agent / Morris Dibben / Stoke fruit farm / Northney Tea Rooms, and Lions Community Shop. Please ensure you purchase tickets before the event, you will be disappointed if you arrive at the gate on the evening without tickets. Please note all tickets cost £17 there are no concessions.
This is my first year as a member of the team that plan and action all activities to ensure that the night is as successful as previous years or better. It is the dedication of the club members that every aspect from selling tickets, ordering the food, preparing the venue, cooking the food, and all the other actions from toilets to car parking are planned to ensure a successful and smooth running evening. Club members take on the required tasks; all keen to ensure the ticket holders who attend have a memorable evening.
Thanks again to Stan and Mary Pike for allowing us to once again stage the BBQ event at Northney Farm.
Look out for the HIBC BBQ advertising banners around the Island, perhaps as you go around the Island, you could count the BBQ advertising banners you see, I will give you the correct total next month. (just for fun – no prizes)
