Help support and maintain important village amenities—and be in with a chance of winning cash prizes every month!

Whiteparish 100+ Club is a private society that exists to support the maintenance, upkeep and improvement of Whiteparish Memorial Centre and the adjacent playing field, children’s play area, MUGA (Multi-Use Games Area – astroturf) and car park; and to help raise funds in support of this.

The Club typically provides a net income of around £2000 each year; but with the play area alone needing refurbishment and repairs costing £7500 in 2017 we are always looking for new members.

The main activity of the Club is its monthly draw which has a prize fund of £100 with a first prize of £30. There is also a special draw just before Christmas with a first prize of £100. This draw is made at the Club’s Christmas social event.

Membership of the Club starts at just £15 a year and provides the member with a numbered ticket in each of the 13 draws. You can have additional tickets at £15 each. The membership year starts in June but you can join anytime and pay pro-rata.

100+ Club Christmas Celebration (2017)

The 2017 100+ Club Christmas party went with its usual swing, some 50 people enjoying quizzes, lots of excellent hot food provided by the trustees and their helpers, scintillating entertainment from local singer Maddie Cooper and, of course, the Christmas draw as well as the December draw (the results of which appear below) and a raffle with lots of interesting prizes. Whilst this is, in part, a fund-raiser for the Memorial Centre maintenance, it is also a really good fun evening in the run-up to Christmas, and it would be great if even more people came along to help us celebrate the start of the festive season because not everyone realizes that the evening is open to all—it’s not just for members of the 100+ club.

The Memorial Trustees would like to thank everyone who renewed their Club membership in 2017 for another year and those who joined for the first time. Unfortunately Club membership is significantly down this year compared to recent years – 213 compared to 228 last year. This equates to £225 less in membership fees.

The Club has traditionally maintained the prize fund at between 40-44% of total fees with the remaining money going to the Memorial Trust to support the upkeep of the playground, playing field, MUGA and Memorial Centre.

Maintaining this ratio required the monthly draw fund to reduce to £90 from £100 last year and £300 for the Christmas draw instead of £320. You will see this reflected in the first draw results. The Memorial Trustees will be formally approving this change at the next Trust meeting on 5 September when it is also intended to change the club Rules to make this prize fund ratio of 40-44% a formal practice rather than simply a traditional one. This is a regular meeting and open as usual for any villager to attend and express their views.

It is not too late to re-join this year or to join as a new member and support this important local charity. You can do so at a reduced pro-rata fee depending on how many draws remain for this year. If you need a renewal/application form contact Richard Burr at or telephone 884002. contact Richard Burr by email at or telephone 01794 884002.
