Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club Report  – September 1964

First Old Folks Holiday Took Place –  15 elderly folk for a weeks holiday in Swanage. Volunteer drivers and stewards were appointed and Alec Brennen as doctor in charge.

Eight TV sets now installed for needy people and arrangements made for licences and maintenance.

The welfare committee chairman reported the Club’s first outright gift, £20 from Mrs Hill of Grotto House, Sea Front for the holiday scheme pocket money. Mrs Hill also offered to provide a coach and tickets for up to 30 people to visit the pantomime in Portsmouth. A generous gesture greatly appreciated.
