We also have pool, domino, darts and crib teams and would welcome more teams to use the club facilities.
Louise Lovatt the stewardess of the club said,
"Over the recent years we have seen a decline in membership for a number of reasons one being our ageing member's and decline of social clubs in general, look at the St Leonards Social Club (MRI club). The Club is a great place and we would like to encourage people to come and see us and try us out
Our town centre location makes us a great place for meeting up during the day for a coffee or for a night out, with social club prices too. We have some fantastic events on throughout the year for all ages, from the annual summer fair to gentleman's evenings and pamper days. We have live entertainment twice a month on a Saturday night which you also can have a quick game of bingo in the interval and a fun quiz.
Families are welcome at the club at all times Membership is open to everyone membership if you wish to join after giving us the once over is only £2.50 to become a club member and £17 to become a branch member. We ask all members new past and present to support the club, everyone is welcome to come and use the facilities we have available, and we would love to see some new members at the club. After being open for over 70 years it would be a sad day to close our doors for the last time however without new members we may not be able to carry on."
