Further News. The Candles - Profits July 29th

Those who entered the Candles Congress will be well aware that we advertised that any profits would be sent to The Martlets Hospice in Hove.  Profits were £300, The delay in announcing it is because our Congress Secretary,Bob Whiting, has been arranging to have this amount doubled by his previous employers, Santander. I am sure that all entrants will be pleased that £600 is probably going to be the overall sum.  However the final go ahead for this arrangement has been scheduled for January 2016 and so we wait patiently for the confirmation hoping in the meantime that Santander does not have any crises. We felt that it was time to put everyone in the picture and will report again when the despatch of money actually takes place. 

An Update July 1st

This is to bring club members up to date with one or two club matters which have occurred recently.

The Candles Congress which was billed as the last ever is in fact to continue. The members of the county association who took part decided that it was such a success that it would be a good idea to take it over,.So after much discussion the S.C.C.B.A. will be running it next year.  It will probably be still called The Henfield Candles Congress and we are passing on to them the two major trophies.  We will also of course give advice and assistance particularly with equipment  but we are no longer responsible for it. We wish them every success for the future with it.

 The Committee has decided  not to hold the St Barnabas Event in October.   Last year we felt that it did not run very smoothly and that it was time to give it a rest.

David Gilbert has retired as a club director.  We are very sad about this and he will be much missed.  We thank him very much for his services over the past few years and we hope that we will see him from time to time as a player. 

(What was to be...) The 40th & LAST EVER Candles 2015...7th June

The Candles Congress has taken place and was a great success.  30 teams competed and the results are posted on the S.C.C.B.A. website and the H.D B.S.web site (with photographs).  The chairman of the Congress Committee  for all those years, Peter Bates, spoke after supper and thanked warmly the many people who have helped with the Congress.. First he thanked John Porteous for his catering which has for twenty years played a big part in making the event popular.   From the past he paid tribute to Bill Starr, who set it up, Eric Selden who directed it for many years and Pam Kelly who was Congress Secretary.. Then,moving on to more recent times, he thanked Martin Pool and Andrea and David Galpin for directing as well as Gerry Stanford and Bob Whiting who  helped with administration. It was Bob's organisation of the publicity that helped us to make it to 40 years.  Finally he thanked all the players for their support in making today a success.  We will publish later our final total of donation to the Martletts in Hove when all our accounts are completed.
