Epperstone Sports and Leisure Club

 

The club aims to provide a sports and social environment which encourages both adult and junior sport participation with opportunities for coaching and competitive activities.

 

It is an LTA affiliated tennis club with two grass artificial tennis courts which convert easily into a large 5-a-side football pitch - ideal for training and matches.

The courts have a floodlighting system which enables sports activities 365 days a year.

 

Whatever your level,you are welcome... come along and join in.

We observed one minute’s silence to remember Bridget Brailsford who died recently.
 
Our Christmas Craft Evening was led by Margaret Robinson, our own home – grown speaker. When Margaret showed us the intricately cut and folded six point paper star that we were going to make, many of us thought that it might be a challenge too far. The room was unusually quiet while we all focused on the task in hand. With Margaret’s patience and guidance we all eventually managed to complete our stars successfully.
We rounded off the evening with a quiz, and the traditional mince pies and mulled wine.
 
We began 2018 with entertainment by “Los Amigos”, a three man band led by Neville Cooper. The group, comprised of two guitarists and a drummer, played Cuban and South American dances, including tango, cha cha cha, habanera, bolero, and the more recent bossa nova and salsa. Neville explained how the dances had evolved, and how they had been influenced rhythmically by the music of the African slaves. Our task was to try to identify the different dance forms and tunes,and fans of television’s “Strictly Come Dancing” were definitely ahead of the game on this one. We enjoyed Neville’s amusing anecdotes, limericks and short poems, but most of all, it was the trio’s dance music which helped to banish the January blues for one evening at least.
 
Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 13 February at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Patsy Rayner, our speaker, will consider “Why are the Japanese so Healthy?”
 
Visitors are very welcome.

Epperstone Trunk Water Main Replacement Works

Update from Severn Trent Water

Work to install the new water main in Epperstone is progressing well. Towards the end of January (W/C 22 Jan) we’ll need to move out of the field to install some connections and valves on Gonalston Lane. Unfortunately to do this safely we’ll need to close Gonalston Lane, close to the village hall to through traffic for about 4 weeks – access will be maintained to properties and the village hall during this phase of work and traffic will be diverted along Lowdham Road. Thank you once again for your patience while we carry out this work.

You can also keep up to date with the project by checking our project webpage - see the link below.

if you scroll down you’ll find Epperstone half way down the page on the left.
