Volunteer Escort

Posted by Val Swain • Leave a comment

The Club is seeking a relief escort for one of the Contact 88 minibuses we use to transport some of our members to the Club on a Thursday morning.   This is not an arduous task but very necessary as the minibuses cannot function without an escort to assist the driver. 

The task would involve arriving at the Contact 88 depot in Tozer Way at 9 am to pick up the members with the driver to arrive back at the Newell Centre for 10 am when the Club meeting begins.  The escort woud need to return to the Newell Centre at 12.00 to pick up the same members to take them back to their homes and return the vehicle to the Contact 88 depot by 12.45/1pm.

This would not be a commitment every Thursday but would enable the Club to transport its members every week when the regular escorts are on holiday or away for anything unforeseen.

If you would be interested in becoming an escort, please telephone Val Swain on 01243 780852 or email

Thank you

In August the Club were delighted to receive a cheque for £1,000 from the West Sussex Travel Society Charity to help towards the cost of transporting members to our weekly meetings.  We greatly appreciate their generosity.   Thank you.

Summer Outing July 2010

Posted by Val Swain • Leave a comment

On 22nd. July 36 members and helpers set off for our annual Summer lunch in a cloud burst!    After the weeks of constant sunshine we felt unlucky but very soon the sun came out and our driver took us on a scenic ride through the country villages.   With perfect timing we arrived at The Black Rabbit at Arundel at 12 noon.

     The staff made us very welcome and everyone enjoyed their pre-lunch drink (on theClub) and an excellent meal whatever their choice.   Coffee and tea were complementary which was much appreciarted.

     The venue proved very popular as it is situated on the banks of the Arun and prettily bedecked with flowering baskets   All very inviting!
