Yvette Halen-Devos (6/5/1929 - 4/2/2021) - RIP

We are sorry to announce the passing of Yvette Devos, a long-time member of the Club, on Thursday 4 February 2021 in her 92nd year. Our deepest sympathy goes to her children, Pierre and Carine and grand-children, Charline, Corentine, Alexandre and Juliette. 

With a hop and a skip and away it goes!

Begone old junk! A skip has been hired for the weekend to get rid of much of the junk at the club. So we're looking for volunteers to help! Either turn up or contact Gerald Strouts at .

Getting rid of junk...

We are starting to clear assorted junk that has accumulated over the years and store it by the back gate in a cordoned-off area awaiting the arrival of a skip.
We ask members to take extra care with their small children to keep well away from this area. 

Painting and decorating

The painting and decorating that has been so painstakingly done by Astrid and her extraordinary team are not far from completion. The hours they have put in has transformed our shared second home.
