Call for work volunteers
Are you needing to top up your club maintenance hours? We need a volunteer to monitor and action the emptying of the sceptic tank on an ongoing basis. This job will fulfil all of your annual hours, simple process can be done to suit your lifestyle, contact maintenance.
Also during a hectic moment recently I arranged with a member to straighten the drop pins on the compound gates but cannot remember who it was! Who was it? Please remind me so that I know the job is in hand. (I know that part of this maintenance officer job is to be mocked. I can take it but try to be nice to me as I am old and fragile.)
The Exec reflected on the feedback from the AGM and have decided not to pursue restrictions on vaping in the clubhouse or TSC grounds for the time being.
We would ask however that people continue to be considerate of others and refrain from vaping near others if asked.
We will review any feedback we receive over the coming year and if necessary bring the matter back to a future AGM

BASh Choir- Beer And Shanties Choir- to Sing for ‘CALM’
Local choir director Rosa Malone will be leading a unique six-week singing project in preparation for a performance at the end of March in support of ‘CALM’ Campaign Against Living Miserably. CALM is leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK the and cause of eighteen deaths a day.
Rosa, who was raised in Petersfield and studied at Trinity College of Music, has been directing choirs, in Greece, including the Lefkas Shanty Men, for six years. She specialises in making choral singing fun, inspirational and open to all people, regardless of their experience. In addition to regular choir practices, Rosa runs singing retreats in the Greek Islands, holds online singing tutorials and regular workshops.
Rosa is putting together the BASh Choir- Beer And Shanties Choir- for blokes. The aim is to get guys together once a week for a couple of drinks and a few hearty songs. All of the music can be learned by ear, meaning that the group will be open to anyone, regardless of experience.
She said, “I love sea shanties. It’s very evocative music but the songs are also so accessible and easy to pick up. There is such a rich maritime tradition in the area, with so many people having links to the Navy or sailing, that it seemed like the perfect place to set up a one-off sea shanty choir. I hope that as a unique, short-term project without long-term commitment, this will be something a little bit different that guys could do with their mates, brothers or dads and it’s all for an excellent cause. It’ll be a great way to meet lots of like minded people, sharing the community experience, whilst improving your voice with a pint in hand!”
The six-week course will be held at Portchester Sailing Club, every Thursday, 7:30-9pm. Rosa will also be running a free taster session for people to come and see what it’s all about on 20/2/20. The fee for the whole project will be £40.
