LGCC WHAT'S ON - FEBRUARY & MARCH 2024: Live Music x 2, Tai Chi, Tea@TheGreen, Banjo Bash, Quiz Night, Yoga & Much More...

05 Feb 2024

WE look forward to welcoming you to Leverstock Green CC very soon; complete with the fantastic newly-refurbished bar.

Please find below details of the latest events and other regular features of life in and around LGCC's community-focused clubhouse here at The Green - listed in chronological order.

Please note that all club events and clubhouse hires are shown within the 'Next Up At The Green' events section of this club website. Do make that your first port of call in between our email updates, as this section is constantly updated.

Here's what's coming up for you...

Targeted especially at senior members, enjoy something quite different at LGCC, as local instructor Fiona Walsh leads you through two free taster sessions of Tai Chi (Qigong).

These are gentle, strengthening easy movements which are perfect for beginners. Even better, you can stand or sit - as preferred - while taking part.

There's no need to book. Simply come along on a Tuesday morning, with £5 payable upon arrival.

Give it a try. Many have and already really enjoying it.

TUE FEB 6 - CHRIS'S BANJO BASH: Bar 8.00pm, Music 8.15pm
Enjoy the foot-tapping sounds of bluegrass and old-time music courtesy of Chris Lawrance and his gang of maestros.

The monthly Banjo Bash takes place every first Tuesday of the calendar month, with instruments strumming from around 8.15pm.

The bar is open for you to enjoy a drink while listening to a group of talented musicians keep some really traditional sounds alive - sure to put a smile on your face.

THU FEB 8 & THU FEB 22 (every second & fourth Thursday of the month) - T@THEGREEN: Join Us For A Cuppa & A Chat - Free Community Event, All Welcome

T@TheGreen is back with a February double, on both February 8 and February 22, 2024. 

As LGCC's fantastic community-led and community-focused fixture continues into 2024, it's over two years now that local people - some of whom may really appreciate the chance to spend time in the company of like-minded others - have been able to gather between 10.00am and 12noon twice a month for a cuppa and a chat.

Completely free to attend and personally hosted, everyone in the local community is welcome to pop by or stay for the whole two hours; whichever is most appealing.

Have a chat with other folk from around the village and surrounding areas, or simply sit back, relax and take in the calming view across The Green from our bright and airy clubhouse facility - while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee and some light refreshments.

Come along and enjoy a relaxed yoga session under the watchful eye of a qualified tutor, every Thursday evening inside the LGCC clubhouse.

Mats are available to use should you not possess your own, and the group often stay behind for a quick drink after the clubhouse opens to others at 8.00pm.

Co-ordinator Glennis Taylor will be only too happy to welcome you along to a friendly group of like-minded folk. Please contact her for more information on 07778 797475.

SAT FEB 24, 8.30PM - SATURDAY SOCIAL AT LGCC: Live Music from The Beatin' Hearts
New to LGCC, we're delighted to be introducing live music in the form of The Beatin' Hearts.

Members, friends and family are very welcome to enjoy this experienced band's mix of upbeat pop, rock, soul, country and much more.

Live from 8.30pm on the last Saturday of February, LGCC members should feel welcome to bring guests along as the club is once again proud to present more live music free of charge.

It's thinking caps on time every first Sunday of the calendar month - and we'll be ready to welcome you for the latest monthly quiz night on March 3.

The clubhouse usually opens between 7pm and 7.15pm, with the aim to start between 7.30pm and 7.45pm.

The quizzes are set and designed to be quite informal and not too heavyweight; so they should appeal to a broad church among the LGCC membership.

Quiz teams can be formed of any number you'd like to bring. The entry fee of £2 per person is divided between the top performers. New participants are always very welcome - either as a whole team, or as individuals joining others.

As stated, the emphasis is on fun - nothing too intellectual and a few laughs guaranteed. See you there!

LGCC's Management Committee wishes to invite all members to the 2024 AGM, moved back from its usual January slot due to the recent bar refurbishment.

The clubhouse will open around 7pm on Monday March 4, with the Annual General Meeting set for a 8.00pm start.

It's your chance to hear a review of the year just ended from club officials, and also ask any questions you may have of the committee - as well as put your name forward for any of the volunteer positions, should you wish to give more time toward LGCC's future wellbeing.

Why not come and see the new-look bar, while seeing fellow LGCC members for a chat.

We look forward to welcoming you all.

SAT MAR 23, 8.30PM - SATURDAY SOCIAL AT LGCC: Live Music from The Silver Surfers
Continuing our free-to-access live music gigs at The Green, The Silver Surfers will be playing at LGCC's clubhouse on the evening of Saturday March 23.

A covers band with a very strong reputation around the south-east, the band will be live from around 8.30pm.

LGCC members should feel welcome to bring guests along as the club is once again proud to present more live music free of charge.

Winter Season fixtures for both the Monday and Wednesday darts teams are now firmly up and running.

Updates on fixtures can be found at the 'Upcoming Events' section of our club website lgcc.hitscricket.com, with fixtures from there listed for easy reference on the website's homepage.

To get involved and find out more about our two Darts teams, please contact Darts Secretary Roy Makins on 07312 080302.

If you have any ideas relating to social events you'd like to see LGCC host, or would be keen to put something on yourself, please feel free to contact Social Events Co-Ordinator Sandra Malloy on 07515 458861.

That's it for now. We look forward to providing a warm welcome at The Green whenever you're next calling in!
