After Eight Club

The After 8 Club meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month - an opportunity for the women of Burwash Common, Burwash Weald and Burwash village to get together, share experiences, hear talks or try new things. Most meetings start just after 8.00pm and are held at The Pavilion, Burwash Common. 

Club activities are wide-ranging - recent and upcoming activities have included an Archery  'taster' session, trying out the sport of Curling, local quizzes and expert talks on Maritime Wildlife Rescue and teaching in Malawi. We have regular summer and Christmas parties for members.  

New members are always welcome - for more information contact Jan McCartney on 01435 882 117 or Claudette Neville on 01435 883 043.  

The January meeting at the Pavilion was a sell out and we ran out of chairs!  The attraction was conspiracies - who’d have thought it?  Our excellent speaker, Andy Thomas, enlightened us on the theories of worldwide conspiracies from the Gunpowder Plot to Trump’s plots and about the birth and progress of ‘New World Order’.  

Andy is a most eloquent and professional speaker and knows and loves his subject so everyone was riveted.  We are thinking of having him back in 2020 to talk on one of his other subjects - maybe the Lewes Bonfire Society??  (He’s already done the mysteries of Crop Circles for us).  Thank you Carla - another triumph and a most successful evening,  Thank you Mavis and Pauline for the refreshments and everyone who helped clear up.

You will have received Sandra’s email with the details of next month’s ten pin bowling on 13th February.  A few more bowlers would make it more fun so do get in touch with her so that she can book it.

The AGM is now on 20th March.  If you have any ideas to put forward for events in 2019/20 please could you email them to me and I will start making a list.  Please include a few details. I have received some already thanks.  As there are so many of us we will try to make the voting easier - I have a plan!  Ideas for events can also be put forward on the night as usual. 

Our thoughts and love go to our After 8 friends who are unwell or whose loved ones are going through a difficult time.  Love Jan
