The Strand Club, Overstrand
The club was founded by a few local ladies in January 1996, who identified the need for an informal club socializing in the afternoon.
The club has remained a small, friendly group, meeting together at 2pm on the second Wednesday of every month except August. Our venue has now changed to the Pavilion in Overstrand which we are excited about as it means we can make use of their entertainments and alcohol licences as and when we need to. We will also be able to sit outside when weather permits. The Methodist Church has done us proud for many years but we felt it was time for a change. We now encourage men to join the club and try to ensure that we arrange our programme to include items they will also find of interest throughout the year.
The maintenance of the village defibrillator on the outside wall of the White Horse continues. This year we will be supporting the new doctors’ surgery and Canine Concern.
Every year, usually in June, we enjoy a day’s outing, never too far away, and in April our full programme is posted on the Overstrand village notice board. We always welcome visitors.
The annual subscription remains at £7.50 – excellent value – payable in March at our AGM. Members then pay £1 (non-members £2) at the door each month which covers refreshments. Raffle tickets are available for purchase throughout the meeting.
