2015 – July Report

Spice Girlz hit Hayling!! Report from HIBC – John Cushion

For one night Northney Farm will become one of the south coast’s leading night spots when the SPICE GIRLZ hit Hayling on Saturday 11th July. One of the UK’s premiere tribute bands will keep you dancing all night at the Club’s ANNUAL BARBEQUE supported by a lively disco, stalls and games. With the kind permission of farm owners Stan and Mary Pike the main barn will be available in the event of inclement weather and the fun will start at 7.30pm. The ticket price of £17 per person includes all the food you can eat and there will also be competitively priced beer and soft drinks for sale as well as a wine bar. Tickets are selling out fast for this memorable night out and please remember that all PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT WILL GO TOWARDS THE RUNNING COSTS OF THE HAYLING ISLAND COMMUNITY BUS AND OTHER LOCAL BENEFICIARIES.

During May the Club arranged and paid for nearly 100 senior citizens from local organizations to attend the latest HIADS hilarious production The Best Days of Your Life at the Station Theatre. There are currently tickets available for the next and future HIADS productions and details can be obtained from Community Services Chairman via e-mail at communityservices@hibc.org.uk

Please note that tickets are only available to senior citizen and similar organisations and not on an individual basis.

The Club’s stall at the Lion’s Donkey Derby event on the 30th May was a great success. With fine weather swelling the number of visitors business was brisk and the cake stall sold out very quickly. Cakes and contents for the Prize Hamper were kindly donated by Club members, wives, partners, friends and the Coop in Mengham whose support is greatly appreciated. The winning ticket for the Hamper was number 6 and the prize was claimed by Islander Mrs Stevens who was delighted with her win. She said it was her intention to share the prize with her friendly neighbours. We all hope they are enjoying the feast!

Donations for the bottle stall came in thick and fast which helped swell the funds considerably. All in all over £450 was raised on the day a truly remarkable effort. A big Thank You to all concerned including members of the Lions Club for their kind hospitality on the day.

Although the Community Bus is in use virtually every week day there is now an availability on Saturdays. Any organisation wishing to make use of the facility either on a one off or regular basis is welcome to contact bus manager Trevor Slydell via e-mail minibus@hibc.org.uk. Please remember that although use of the bus is free, you must provide your own driver who will be 70 and under with a clean licence.
