All meetings are held at:
The Steyning Centre
When you come to a new club it is always rather daunting facing a room full of people, but there will be someone on hand to guide you to a vacant chair and introduce you to the people on that table. Of course, sometimes a chair is being saved for a friend but there are always spare chairs to be found. It is advisable to arrive well before 2pm – say 1.40pm as there are a few things to do before the meeting actually starts. When you join the club you will be given a programme of events so you know what to expect for the year.
Format of the Meeting
The formal part of the meeting will start at 2pm when the chairman will open the meeting. At that point she will give out any notices and explain about how the entertainment will run. That will be followed by details of forthcoming Outings , “Birthdays” and other relevant information for the club.
When you fill in your registration form, we ask you to give your birth date and address, including postcode, this enables us to send you a birthday card and also to celebrate your birthday at the appropriate monthly meeting.
We try to have a very varied entertainment programme, ranging through music, quizzes and talks and sometimes unusual interesting nibbles. The entertainment starts at 2.30pm and lasts for about 45mins when we have tea and later draw the raffle.
Each month we hold a raffle – there is a raffle table on your left as you enter the hall – the prizes are donated by our members. You don’t have to bring anything but if you do, it would be most appreciated, also you can buy raffle tickets – 50p a strip. The winning numbers are drawn at about 3.45pm.
Paying for Outings
Before the meeting starts at 2pm some members will pay for any outings they wish to go although there are other opportunities before the entertainment starts to make the payment.
Most people arrange their own transport to the Club but we can provide transport if required. We hope users will donate £1 for this service. There is a Transport Organiser and we have drivers who collect members from and to their home. You are asked to inform the transport Organiser or your usual driver if you are not coming to a meeting. We are sorry but this service can only be provided in Steyning, Upper Beeding and Bramber.
