Thurso 50th Charter Celebrations - 10/11th May
Nine club members travelled some 700 miles to join the Thurso club for their 50th Charter celebrations last weekend.
President Frank Bremner invited us after meeting Colin Coe last year at an exhibition. A fabulous weekend of entertainment saw us on Fiday night at the Caithness Horizons Bar. We were piped in by the Thurso Pipe Band who are also celebrating, 100 years this year. Followed by a Buffet, free bar and Dance to the Ian Sinclair Big Band.
Saturday we toured the area by coach, visiting the late Queen Mother's Castle of Mey on the way. Superbly hosted by Past President and resident comedian Alan Sparling.
Saturday night the formal dinner at the Weigh Inn Hotel was attended by Lord Thurso, Cath Chorley the District Governor and around 18 other clubs from District 1010.
We spent a couple more days touring the area including a trip to Orkney, Kirkwall and of course Scapa Flow.
An amazing weekend which we hope will be the start of a special relationship with the Thurso club. Congratulations to them on achieving 50 years not out. Pics

Race Night - Sat 20th April - Albany School
Our annual Race Night was held at Albany School in Hornchurch for the 3rd year running. A great night, everyone really enjoyed themselves. Thanks to all who came and supported us and created such a good atmosphere.
We raised just over £2,000 for our local causes.
The venue was perfect, the help and support was 1st class and the meal was excellent. A big thankyou to all at the school. Pics.

Great Partners Evening last night...good to see so many familiar faces...many thanks to the Golf Club for our lovely fish supper...the entertainment though was fabulous ! The Karwacinski family, Katrina (Keyboards), Kate (Flute), Stephen (Bassoon and Trumpet) and Christopher (Violin), played some light classical and show tunes for us...a delighted audience was spellbound...and we had an encore too!
We will definitely be hoping for a repeat performance in the near future. Pics.

Inter-Club Bowling - Romford Brewery - Wed 20th Feb
Romford, Hornchurch & Upminster, Dagenham and ourselves gathered together at Romford Brewery Bowl last night for some fun and in some cases, serious competition. The scores varied quite a bit, but we had one upcoming star in Robert Elsdon...he's good !
Syd Peters weighed in with a creditable 106 in the second game though.
Trevor's experience as a builder came in handy as he tended to use the 'guttering' quite a lot !!
Good to see so many people there, 30 in all, and a very nice time had by all. Pics
Thankyou for visiting our website total visits.
