COVID-19 -- Update
18.4.2020 - Four weeks into our lockdown, and we still no nearer to knowing when we will have events to publish 😕 We can only be patient.
Maggie and I have both received official letters telling us that we are classified as "extremely clinically vulnerable", and as such, we are NOT allowed to leave our property, even for food or doctors visits. No shopping. No outside exercise. We envy those who can at least go for a brief walk.
We know that we have at least 8 more weeks to wait. In the end we look forward to getting out and seeing our friends at the clubs. In the meantime we ask you all to STAY HOME. STAY SAFE.
We are aware that a large percentage of the club members fall into groups that are advised to 'self-isolate' and as such this would reduce the club attendances. This will mean that many clubs, who are already on tight financial margins will need to assess the viability of continuing with the events.
We can only recommend that the organisers are contacted before travelling to the clubs. Any cancelled events we are told about may be found here.
Organisers are asked to let us know as/when decisions are made to cancel events so that we can help spread the word. Our contact details are here.
Delta Dawn - We welcome a new club
We have just add the pleasure of adding a new club to our site.
The Delta Dawn C.M.C. is based in Tonbridge at The New Telegraph Club, Priory Road
At a time when we are reporting the closure of clubs, this is particularly welcome, and also marks the first time we have a club based in West Kent.
We wish them every sucess, and hope our visitors will support this venture.
Star and Garter Closes
We are told that the Star & Garter C.W.C. have had to reluctantly made the decision to close with immediate effect.
Unfortunately, attendances meant that the organisers were unable to cover the expenses.
The organisers would like to thank all those who supported the club in the past.
We loose another friend
Once again I have the sad task of passing on the news that another friend has passed away.
Following the passing of Yvonne Broad in March, news reaches us that husband Brian has passed away.
Long time organiser of the Bar J T club in Sittingbourne, and regular at the Dancing Dog and Amigos Brian was a friend to many, and will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
We understand the his funeral will be held on Friday 14th June at 12.00 at Bobbing Crematorium.
Another departed friend
Word reaches us that Yvonne Broad has passed away. Part of the team that ran the sucessful Bar JT club in Sittingbourne for many years and a visitor to other local clubs she will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts go to husband Brian, and her family and friends.
The funeral is at Bobbing Crematorium on the Monday 4th March 11.00am
A New Club
We are pleased to announce that we hear of a new club starting up.
Whilst it is not in Kent, we know that clubs need all the publicity they can get, and its not too far away.
You will be welcomed at the Lone Wolf C.M.C.
