Firstly I have some very exciting news for you all, after lots of fundraising we have placed an order for the lease of our very first brand new Exmouth Gateway multi-adaptable mini bus. This should arrive at Club early in the new year and will have a ramp/tracking for wheelchairs. We will still need to continue fund raising but thank you to all of you who have contributed towards this so far. Also thank you to those who attended the launch of our year as TSB Exmouth Charity of the Year. The staff of TSB Exmouth will be organising lots of fundraising events over the next 12 months some of which may involve us or that we can attend. Please support them where you are able.

After a very successful season 16/17 our football team, Exmouth Tigers next tournament is on Sunday 15th October at Chudleigh FC. Games usually kick off around 11am and the Tigers would love as many supporters as possible to cheer them on. Lastly we can no longer take old £1 coins at Club as they are no longer legal tender from Oct 16th. However if you have any and would like to donate them to Club then we would love to take them from you J

October 30thHalloween Disco. This is our annual halloween fancy dress disco, please if you can take part in this by dressing up this would be great as we will have prizes for the best costume. Disco will be from 6.30pm to 9pm.

Nativity Play / Christmas Carol Concert – Monday 18th December 2017 – Holy Trinity Church.

Many of you take part in a Christmas Carol concert in early December and we have our own on the last Monday before the Christmas break. So this year we have combined the two events and this will take place on Monday 18th December at Holy Trinity. As usual we will be accompanied by Exmouth Town Concert Band. Many of you have read lines from the Nativity Story so this year to make it a little bit different we will be performing our very own Gateway Nativity during the Carol concert. We need a Mary, Joseph, Inn Keeper, 3 Wise Men, Shepherds, Sheep, Angels, a donkey etc as well as narrators. Early in November we will start auditions for the parts so please have a think about which role you would like. It would be great to get as many of you involved as possible and more details will follow about the evening nearer the time.

Majorca holiday June 2018 – by popular demand we are hoping to return to Majorca in June next year, there will be different day trips and the dates are 13th-20th June. Flights are now booked and places have filled extremely fast that there are only a few left.  The cost will be around £400-£450 per person which will include flights, transfers, all inclusive accommodation and day trips. The only additional cost will be your own travel insurance and spending money. Many of you have told us you would like to go but without a deposit no place will be guaranteed. If you don’t want to miss out then fill in the form and return asap.

PLEASE NOTE – All holidays / trips are subsidised by club funds, to benefit from this regular attendance at club is required. If you would like to come and don’t attend club regularly then please speak to Paul/Emma for a revised price.

Thanks Emma

Club Leader
