2013 – July Update

A complete Sell Out!!

Report from Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club – John Cushion

With all tickets sold well in advance of the event the annual HIBC Barbeque was a complete success. The weather was magnificent, the food excellent, the Take all That tribute band outstanding and by the look on the faces of 500 party goers everyone had wonderful evening. Club members, friends and relatives toiled untiringly for most of last week and from very early morning on Saturday to turn Northney Farm into the Island’s top party venue. Work finished just in time for the arrival of the first guests, and soon the beef was being carved, the burgers and sausages sizzling and the beer and wine flowing. The various side stalls were kept busy all evening and dancing to Take all That and DJ Malcolm Drew carried on far into the night. And the reward for all the hard work and support? Proceeds of several thousand pounds towards the running of the HIBC Community Bus and other worthwhile causes on the Island in the coming year. A truly remarkable effort!

Whilst it is not possible to acknowledge everyone individually in this report the Club committee would like to thank everyone for their support, ticket sales, raffle prizes, supply of equipment and an enormous amount of help before and on the night. Special thanks to Stan and Mary Pike and son Tim for use of the barn and farm facilities.

2013 – This year’s BBQ is a sell-out

If you have not already secured your tickets for this years BBQ, then sadly you have missed the boat. All tickets are now sold meaning it will be a busy night, but no doubt a good one too.

The evening is headlined by the Take That tribute band “Take All That”. With the usual great food, games and stalls, the evening is always a successful one, and it looks like the weather will be kind to us this year.
