2013 – June Report

Hayling Island Businessmen’s Club invites you to another Great Night Out!!

Report by John Cushion – Publicity Officer

Although no one has told the weather, it will soon be Barbeque time again and Club members are busy preparing for the Club’s main fund raising event of the year, the ANNUAL BARBEQUE At Northney Farm, St Peter’s Road, North Hayling on Saturday 13th July starting at 8.00pm. Tickets are already flying out the window for this hugely popular event and record numbers are expected again this year. Club Chairman Pat Keane and his helpers will again be spending many hours on the day spit roasting a whole side of succulent beef in addition to which there will be the normal barbeque fare as well as vegetarian options. Entertainment will be provided by the UKs premier Take That tribute band, TAKE all THAT supported by a lively disco, stalls and games. There will also be beer and soft drinks for sale as well as a wine bar. The price of tickets has been held at £16 for another year which includes as much food as you could possibly eat and represents excellent value for a memorable night out. PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT WILL GO TOWARDS THE RUNNING COSTS OF THE HAYLING ISLAND COMMUNITY BUS AND OTHER LOCAL BENEFICIARIES.

SKITTLES NIGHT Over 60 members and guests enjoyed a fun night of Skittles at the Legion Club on 15th May. There was some keen rivalry with the lead changing hands frequently throughout the evening but the eventual winners were Barbara Sullivan for the ladies and Malcolm Newnes for the men. Wooden spoonist was the ever popular John Barrett whose booby prize was a bottle of wine and the offer of a new pair of specs! Thanks go to vice Chairman Dave Stanway for arranging a super night out.
