I was first introduced to the Elwick Club back in the mid 1970’s as a guest, and at that time it was a very different club from today, it was later that I was proposed to become a member which I felt was quite an honour.
So off went my membership application, a few weeks later I received a letter requesting me to attend a meeting of the Committee, also asking if my Wife would be joining as well, and to bring her along too, which she did (best frock and all).
The time came and we found ourselves waiting in the Members Bar, it didn’t seem long before I was summons to the Committee room where I was asked to take a seat. After some introductions I was asked, why do you want to become a member of the Elwick Club.
And the reason still stays the same some 40 years on.
The Elwick Club offered something different, as soon as you walk in you were made to feel part of something, it is somewhere that you felt completely relaxed and comfortable.
And like all the other members the club is regarded something to be proud of, and that in my mine still remains the same today, although I have seen many changes, which I must admit have been for the better.
It doesn’t matter if you decide to become a member to play Squash, Snooker or Pool, or simple to enjoy the company of likeminded people, nowadays one thing still remains constant, and that is, you will find yourself warmly welcomed.
You will also enjoy great food from our resident Chef David and his team FFF Catering, including Lunch time bites, Themed Nights, to a fantastic Carvery, and our very successful Coffee, Cake and Chatter morning on the last Friday of the month, plus all the entertainment organised by our friendly Manager Nicky, who will always make you feel welcomed.
One last thing, when you decide to become a Member, you are actually part of The Elwick Club.
Regards Barry & Linda Louder.
