The Strand Club
In the interest of members and speakers safety, the Club's activities will not resume until Covid-19 is under control.
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 pavilion, 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 will also be able to sit outside when weather permits. We now encourage men to join our club and actively try to choose items on each year’s programme which we hope they will enjoy. Reports covering the monthly meetings can be accessed by clicking here on Reports.
The maintenance of the village defibrillator on the outside wall of the White Horse continues.
We choose a different charity each year to support and in 2020 it was NARS (Norfolk Accident Rescue Service) who we raised in excess of £1,000. This year it is Wild Touch, a local wild animal rescue and rehabilitation establishment from Ridlington.
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. Visitors are always welcome.
Our year is finished off with a super Christmas party, and the next one started off with a new years' meal in a Restaurant 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.
