ABBA are coming to Filton

by Office

on Tue November 26, 2019

On an amazing morning in early November, Keith, Ronnie and Larry sold 97 tickets in 30 minutes for the upcoming ABBA FEVER tribute band, selling out completely. The tickets for the Christmas Show, at £32 per head, included a 3-course Christmas meal ( courtesy of excellent Chef, Maximillian Barnet, who provided the meal for the recent Tina Turner Tribute act) plus, of course, an evening of entertainment.

Keep an eye out for the 2020 specials. I can reveal now that Keith has already booked the fabulous ULTIMATE ELTON tribute act  for May 2020, and I've subsequently discovered that Mr. Bacon ( alias ULTIMATE ELTON) has actually performed on stage with Elton John himself. Wow !

Then for Christmas 2020, Filton Golf Club will have the pleasure of inviting a highly rated Beatles tribute act - MEET THE BEATLES.

Well done Keith. It looks like 2020 will be another special year at Filton Golf Club.

Tina Turner Evening a great success

on Mon September 30, 2019

On Saturday 28th September, Filton Members and guests were treated to an excellent, high-quality evening of food and music in the clubhouse. Following a delicious two-course meal provided by an external catering service, the Tina Turner Tribute artiste performed many of her most famous hits, with enthusiastic participation from the audience.
Many thanks to Joseph, Naomi and their teams, plus Alex Bennett, the caterer. And, of course, lets not forget Keith Purnell, our resident Maestro, plus Larry and Ronnie for their huge efforts in organising these events that raise welcome funds for our club.
The next event, The Autumn Spectacular, featuring the Kim Cypher Quartet, which was due to take place on Friday 18th October has, sadly, been cancelled due to lack of support.

Volunteer Members strip the Bungalow for Action

Bungalow Team2

Led by a no-nonsense Rob Thorne, a group of FGC member volunteers gave up their September 22nd Sunday afternoon to clear out the Club Bungalow, recently vacated by Julia Rose. This involved completely dismantling and clearing the kitchen, lifting and removing all carpets and underlays, removing numerous laminate floors and dismantling various bedroom and lounge furniture items. In two and a half hours, a large waste skip was completely filled.
This is yet another example of the wonderful support that can be given by our members when the need arises.
Hopefully, this will now enable to club to renovate the bungalow ready for human habitation in the near future.
Many thanks to the group for their magnificent efforts. They are, (from left to right:)

A mention must also be given to Andy Sherlock, who gave up an afternoon a fortnight ago to redecorate a spare room at the back of the kitchen, which is to be used as the Kitchen Laundry Room. Thanks a lot Andy
