Although not held last summer, the HIBC Barbeque has been a firm favourite on the Island for many years and demand for tickets is expected to be high. In addition to excellent food, entertainment will be provided by Status Quo tribute band, Bogus Quo supported by a lively disco, stalls and games. There will also be a beer and soft drinks for sale as well as a wine bar. The price of tickets has been held at £16 for yet another year representing excellent value for a memorable night out.

Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club Report – January 1965
Club member, Les Hedger reported a family in need (he was already supplying vegetables of his own for free). The father had recently had his leg amputated and although determined to return to work soon to support his family this seemed medically doubtful. The Club agreed to take over the hire charges of the family’s television set and authorised Les Hedger to buy whatever was needed. This included a birthday party dress for the family’s young daughter. Les reported that the “gratitude of the father was unbelievable”
