From Nigel Gill:
As you all emerge from your post-Christmas hibernation, it is time to remember that hidden away beside the brook in the lower village is the South Wraxall Club. It is a private members club (and so you have to join – £10 per adult per year) but please remember it exists to serve the village and if you don’t join you are missing out.
The Club is open 3 nights a week (Fri, Sun and Mon) from 7pm (4pm on Sun) on a regular basis to provide a comfortable and friendly environment for a chat, or to play pool, darts, cards or shove halfpenny. The Club serves real ales, and a selection of wines and spirits at reasonable prices all served by volunteers from the village, so you will always find a friendly face. In addition a number of special evenings are planned including: Part 2 of the history of Box Quarries in March, a repeat of David Wyper’s popular talk on life as a submariner in April and the return of Perry Gordon and his Rhythm Club (www.rhythmclubmusique.com) all the way from Bordeaux in May. By then the days will be warmer and the evenings lighter so that you will also be able linger over a quiet drink in the Club garden.
For your comfort and safety, the Club has been refurbished in recent months with new windows, additional heating, new lighting and a complete rewire. Further improvements are planned by the Trustees which will be explained in more detail at the AGM to which all members are invited on Thu 23 Feb.
To join (or re-join for this year) please call in whenever the Club is open. To make it even easier to part with your hard earned £10, there will be a desk just inside the door from 7pm on Mon 6 Feb to take your money. Alternatively drop your name, address and contact details (email and mobile number) together with £10 in an envelope and put it through the letter box of #37.
The Club exists to support the village; and is manned by volunteers from the village; so, if you haven’t been before, please do drop by. Fri from 7pm, Sun from 4pm and Mon from 7pm.
