Chairman's Report
- Must be looking at a heckler !













 August 2019

 Beer Caves and Afterwards at the Fountain Head, Branscombe.

Wonderful day ! Really interesting , if somewhat chilly trip around the caves. wonderful history, an excellent guide and a very good meal and ale in the Fountain Head, Branscombe. The food was excellent, service great and the company ........well, you can't win them all ! No, great crowd supported the event which was planned and checked out by Gordon and Nemo. We are a wee bit worried as to how many venues they checked before finding this one but they were still standing and the choice was excellent.







 July 2019

 Village BBQ - We were there with Splat the Rat, Grab a Peg and Hoopla. Life and soul of the party











 June 2019

 Conducted tour of Ottery St Mary Church followed by meal in the Volunteer Inn, Ottery










May 14th 2019


Gentle Walk from Starcross to the Swan's Nest via the Turf Inn with an abundance of blue sky, sunshine and fresh air.

Wonderful walk along the estuary with a brief stop - ok, a couple of hours stop - at the Turf for small refreshment.

Magic !












 Just about sums it all up !



 First (Hopefully, of many !) Christmas Meal  Dec 18th 2018


















 A Day at the Races - December 7th 2018


For those, like you, who couldn’t come I hope I am reflecting everyone else's opinion when I say we had a really nice day out. The reduced admission for club members (only £5 each!) meant we all had plenty of money for good food and a couple of beers up there. We all had a bet - some more successfully than others. Next time I am just going to back whatever Dusty is on! We were lucky with the weather too - more bright sunshine than the occasional shower.













How Betting Works !


You choose a horse. Then you visit a bookmaker and give him some money. In return he gives you a ticket with an alluring statement of how much money you are about to win. Then the race is run. THEN this is what you do with your ticket from the nice demonstrated by Nigel.    

 Unless you happen to be Dusty of course in which case you go and collect your winnings!
