About Woldingham Village Club (WVC)
To many, WVC is a way of life, a family, a second home; full of friends, fun, laughter and support in times of need. To others, it is a place they have never stepped inside, a place they have merely heard of, a place that used to be known as ‘The institute’ that holds a reputation it certainly no longer deserves.
So, to those of you that have never visited, to those of you that have had membership lapse, and for those that are just curious but never really known what to make of the place, let me fill you in on what has been happening at the Club lately and hopefully entice you to come and join us!
On the last Sunday of the last 3 months we have had the acoustic sounds of local musician Dave Blackwell playing in the evenings. We have had QTA playing one Saturday night; a duo that have supported The Jam, Hard-Fi and The Feeling. We have celebrated Chinese New Year with local band Midnight.
Every Friday we have a meat raffle with 5 prizes, often a joint of beef, loin of pork, a spatchcock chicken or a gammon joint, and the last 2 being the one everybody wants, the amazing breakfast bag containing all you need for a great fry up!
After the meat raffle we have the weekly member’s draw. It is exactly as it sounds, one membership number is drawn at random, if it is yours and you are in the Club at the time of the draw, you win the pot! If you are not in the Club when your number is drawn, just like the National Lottery, we have a rollover. At the time of writing we currently have a record rollover of £175! You’ve got to be in it (the Club) to win it!
Membership is currently booming, perhaps because it is still just £20 per annum, concessions £12. It is a great family environment. New members and guests are always welcome, as are any well behaved four legged friends (please do keep them on a lead).
We have shown a full programme of sporting events on Sky TV and BT Sport including all televised premier league games, 6 Nations Rugby, Darts, Golf, Cricket…the list goes on!
If you prefer to play, why not come make use of our pool table or dart board, or spend an hour or two in our snooker room.
As the weather is getting better (finally!) come and make use of our lovely garden whilst supping on a glass from our good selection of wines, or a pint of real ale (we are lucky enough to have recently attained Cask Marque Quality Accreditation).
Julie’s Kitchen has been keeping the member’s fed well with her Friday night specials, and over 70 covers for her fabulous roast dinners a few Sunday’s ago. The numbers speak for themselves.
I won’t mention it too much, but can’t write this without giving you all a heads up that the 6th Annual Beer Festival is coming up on the weekend of 1st & 2nd of July. We’ll be giving you more information about that in next month’s magazine BUT if there are any companies that would like to sponsor a beer or cider (other packages available), please get in touch with Neil or Julie at the Club as soon as possible, they usually go quite quickly!
