We have decided to make a change of where we hold our monthly coffee mornings for the Mid Sussex area.

Therefore, with effect from MAY 2022 we will now be meeting at The Birch Hotel in Haywards Heath. There is ample parking and we will be in the bar area on the ground floor. The price will reduce to £2 per head.

We look forward to seeing you at The Birch Hotel you on 12th May.


As many of you will know we have outgrown our existing venue and so Margaret and I have found us a new venue for our monthly coffee mornings for the Eastbourne area.

We will be moving to our new location with effect from 7th JULY 2022. Our new venue will be The Snug, Trinity Centre, Trinity Place, Eastbourne BN21 3BX.

We have a private area reserved for us and we can spill out into the rest of the café if necessary. The café offers a wide range of coffees and teas together with Light Bites should you wish to stay on afterwards. We have decided to stop charging the £3 per head and instead give you the choice to purchase whatever drink you wish. They also might tempt you with one of their delicious cakes!

N.B. there will be no Eastbourne coffee morning in June this year because of the Jubilee Bank Holiday.


We understand that Barclays will no longer issue a new cheque book automatically when you are running low. You will need to either order a new cheque book through Online Banking, by calling the central telephone number or by visiting a Branch.


After 22 years of devoted service to the role of Club Welfare Officer, Iris Stass has decided to retire from this role. Iris has recently celebrated a significant birthday and quite rightly feels she deserves a rest! On behalf of all the Committee and Members we thank Iris for all that she has done in the past.

The Committee expressed their thanks to Iris at a lunch and presented her with a bouquet of flowers.

This of course leaves a vacancy for a Welfare Officer on our Committee to cover our Mid Sussex area.

We would love to welcome a new person to work alongside our Welfare Team of Phil Rudman, Jeanette Stammwitz and Christine Goose.

This is not an onerous task and if you are interested in finding out more about the role please give Stephen Barnett a call.
