The Social Club
July 2020 Update:
Village Hall and Social Club
We have all missed the use of this valued social hub. The Trustees are keeping a close eye on the advice from government. As you know it can change so quickly.
It will be too much of a challenge to meet all the safety regulations required under the lockdown advice. When a gradual opening of the social club can happen there will be announcements on posters in the shop, on the village hall noticeboard, on the Village Website Home Page and via our Facebook Page. At the moment staff are furloughed.
The Social Club is run on behalf of the members by a CIC (Community Interest Company) and the Directors are: Chair – Gary Whittred / Secretary – Peter Wadham / and Vic Cross and Deb Lambert.
The Club is a members only club and has a licensed bar which is open:
Mon to Fri: 7pm to 11pm
Saturdays: 3.45pm to 11.30pm
Sundays: 12 noon – 6.30pm
West Norfolk Music Nights are on some Sundays and the bar is then open until 10pm. It is also open for special events. Look out for notices of events where the bar will be open.
The bar prices are generally about 20% cheaper than most pubs.
The club also hosts various village events such as Quiz Nights, the Coronation Club, and various other fundraising activities. The club also hosts the snooker and billiards clubs, both of which enter teams in local leagues, and has two full-size snooker/billiard tables and a pool table. West Norfolk Radio live music broadcasts are held on most Sunday evenings.
There is also a TV and a large-screen projector system to provide Sky Sports and other televised events. The CIC is also responsible for organising various fundraising events and is currently raising money to provide a Defibrillator at the Village Hall/Club.
The Social Club is a not-for-profit organisation and is run solely by volunteers (with paid bar-staff). Visitors to the Club must be signed in by members. All proceeds are used to maintain and improve both the Club and the Village Hall.
