We have raised £85,000 through general fund raising. Sport England has confirmed the award of £50,000 and the ECB has increased their grant/loan to £100,000 with an additional possibility of a further loan of £25,000 if required. Another funding body has sent us a letter of intent for £50,000. We hoped that would enhance our application to the Surrey County Council Community Fund (£30,000) but we heard on the 8th October that our application had been rejected for the third time. We are now hoping that the London Marathon Trust (£70,000 and decision in December) will come up trumps.
The winners of the grand draw which took place at the dinner and dance on the 4th October were:
Heather Mackay - £350.00, Andrew Mayne - £175.00, Andrew Major - £ 90.00,
Roger Holland £35.00

ECB Clubmark & Focus Club Accreditation.
We originally gained our accreditaion in 2007. Following a detailed inspection on the 17th May 2010 the club passed with flying colours and our accreditation was approved for a further three years. Our paperwork was approved by the ECB in February 2013 and we had an inspection on the 8th July 2013. Our new certificate can be viewed in the clubhouse.
Strokes, blood clots etc.
This is for everyone. If somebody stumbles unaccountably they may have had a stroke. Ask them to smile, to say a simple sentence or raise both arms. Also ask them to stick out their tongue and check if it is crooked. If they cannot do any of these simple things call the emergency service as they may have had a stroke. Time is of the essence you might just save a life!
