The Strand Club
The club was founded by a few local ladies in January 1996, who identified the need for an informal club socialising in the afternoon.
The club has remained a small, friendly group, meeting at 2 p.m.in The Barn, The White Horse, Overstrand, on the second Wednesday of every month except August. This means we can make use of their entertainments and alcohol licences as and when we need to. We now encourage men to join our club and actively try to choose items on each year’s programme which we hope they too will enjoy. Visitors too are always welcome. Reports covering the monthly meetings can be accessed by clicking here on Reports.
We choose a different local charity each year to support. In recent years we have supported NARS, Wild Touch, Hedgehog Haven and this year it is to be MIND. A local Charity which can provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. In April our full programme is posted on the Overstrand village notice board. Our year is finished off with a super Christmas party, and the next one started off with a new years' meal in a Restuarant not too far away.
The annual subscription is £10 - excellent value - payable in March at our AGM. Members then pay £2 (non-members £3) at the door each month which covers refreshments. Raffle tickets are available for purchase throughout the meeting.
