Afternoon Club – a potted history
The Club was started in 1981 by two local ‘lasses’, one from Kelsale the other from Carlton. One is still a very active member and a spring chicken in her nineties, whilst the other alas died in 2015 at a modest 99 years young.
Meetings are in the Committee Room at the Village Hall in Kelsale on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 2:00pm until 3:45pm.
Membership is wider than Kelsale cum Carlton with others coming from Saxmundham and surrounding villages, several using the Community bus to attend.
Afternoon meetings include group participation games with prizes to be won, competitions to complete at home plus of course; lashings of tea, coffee, biscuits and cake if there is a member’s birthday to use as a convenient excuse! There is also a draw and a round of bingo to close.
Several trips out are organised throughout the year (largely less than a hours travel from Kelsale cum Carlton) and include; coastal visits, shopping therapy, local attractions and of course a meal or two popped in to ease the way through the year.
Every year concludes with a hoot of a Christmas Party.
