A BIG THANK YOU

A big thank you to Graham Luscombe, Martin Jefferies and their team who organised the firework display on Halloween night. The club was well attended by an influx of fancy dressed ghouls and witches and even a teen wolf. The effort made by the members to dress up was a credit to all and enhanced the night for all that attended. The fireworks were complemented by a barbeque and a band named perfectly for Halloween night, The Tweak Freaks. They went down a storm and even some Committee members were seen dancing.

Our attention now turns to the Christmas programme

The club will have it's annual Charity Christmas quiz night-Thurs 17th Dec 8pm. All proceeds will go to 'Pride in Brixham'. They are a volunteer group who armed with paints, brushes, ladders and gardening tools help keep Brixham in an attractive manner maintaining the environment in and around the harbour; from planting beautiful flower baskets, to painting public benches to weeding the beds. This is just the sort of community project that makes Brixham so special and as such we are proud to help in a small way.

Childrens Christmas Party- Sat 19th Dec 1 pm. Open to children aged 10 and under. A visit from father Christmas full of party games and surprises.

Town Band and Christmas Draw night- Sat 19th Dec 730 pm. Traditionally the start of Christmas at the Club. The Draw night is preceeded by Brixham Town Band who with their mix of traditional Christmas carols and modern day twists always attract a big crowd. The draw tickets are currently available within the Club at 25p per ticket. A mix of prizes to be won.

Christmas Day Club open 1130-130 pm

New years Eve- See in the New Year at the Club with a disco and buffet.

Please see accompanying posters. A list of the Christmas opening hours will be posted soon.
