A social club for learning disabled adults


You can find our current newsletter here, so that you will always now what is going on.

Multi-adaptable bus – Our very own multi-adaptable bus is as you will see here and starting to be used. The Tigers were lucky enough to be the first passengers soon after it arrived. The bus is now available to be booked to take you to and from Club. A few of you are already booked on it on a regular basis but if you would like to make use of it then please contact Paul on 07866270213 to arrange. The cost is £2 each way per home (i.e if there is one of you then it will be £4 to club and back but if there are several of you at the same home then the cost will be split between the number of people ie. 4 people will cost £1 each return). This will hopefully save a few of you some money compared to taxis which are £5 each way! The bus will be filled on a first come first serve basis and will start pickups from 6pm.

Exmouth Tigers – due to the horrible weather we have had several of our tournaments have been cancelled but the next tournament weather permitting is on Sun 15th April – at Chudleigh FC.

Some of the girls have also decided they would like to play football and a few of them have formed the Tigeresses and would love some more players. If any of you would like to join the teams then training takes place Saturdays from 9.30 – 10.30 am at Exmouth Rugby Club. See Paul, Steve or Nick for more information.

Beauty and the Beast – For those of you booked to come on Wednesday 4th April don’t forget we are meeting in the Foyer of the Pavillion at 6.30pm and the show finishes around 9.30pm. You will need to bring money for drinks etc. The mini bus is available to book for transport on a first come first serve basis at a cost of £2 per pickup.

TSB Night – Saturday 14th April 2018 – Exmouth Rugby Club 7.30pm to late

TSB have arranged a fund raising night at the rugby club with local band The Shelley Beach Boys with Vibe Entertainment. Cost is £7.50 per person including nibbles payable on the door or in advance from TSB Exmouth on the Strand. Please note this is not a Gateway organised night and whilst some of the volunteers may be at the evening you will need to arrange your own support / lifts etc. They would like to see as many of you their as possible so please try to attend and encourage your families/support/friends. More details can be found on the Exmouth Gateway facebook page/

Quiz Night – Another quiz night has been arranged for Wednesday 18th April 7pm at the Maltsters Arms in Woodbury. Cost will be £6 per person to include quiz and light buffet. Teams of up to 6 people. Last time we had 72 people, lets see if we can beat this in April! We will be doing a raffle on the night and if anyone has any prizes they would like to donate then please bring them to club (vouchers, wine and chocolates go down well).
