2006 – Senior Citizens Xmas Party

A Christmas party was held at Sinah Warren Hotel for 220 Senior Citizens.

Entertainment was provided by the resident entertainers who provided a spectactular Christmas Show. They were supported by the Hayling College Choir who sang whilst the guests were served tea and cakes by Club members.

The Chairman of the club Meyrick Marston, was delighted with the success of the afternoon and thanked everyone who took part, especially the management and entertainment team from Sinah Warren for their generosity in supporting the event. At the end of the show all the guest were given a Christmas present.

2006 – Donations to good causes

The club have recently given donations of £500 each to the Hayling Island Community Centre and the British Red Cross. The Community Centre need to replace the stage lighting which has come to the end of it’s useful life. We were glad to be able to help this band of volunteers who raise nearly all their own funding.

The Red Cross have had to move the equipment store from the Health Centre due to them requiring the extra space. This left the Red Cross needing a new store for which they have been raising funds. The HIBC were glad to help this good cause and donated £500.

2006 – BBQ Report

Almost 500 people enjoyed a great evening at the Annual BBQ held at Northney Farm.

It was a warm night with plenty to eat and good entertainment and music for the guests. A profit in excess of £5500 was made which will go toward the next mini bus purchase and other deserving local good causes. The Chairman would like to thank everyone who made the evening such a success and to say sorry to those unable to get tickets, which is down to new licensing laws as this restricts us to 499 people attending.

Ensure you get tickets for next year by booking early.

2006 – HIBC Support Local Pantomime

HIBC have donated £250 to Aaron Steadman of Hayling Island and Hayling College. Aaron formed Action Productions and for his next show is producing the pantomime Cinderella.

Aaron was turned down by the lottery for a grant and has had to raise £5000 to produce this show. This is a wonderful effort by a very bright young lad and having been guests at his last show we would recommend you try and attend.
