Two pages of information,

                some rules, (sorry but they are necessary),

                                  and what else goes on at the Welcome Club

Wheelchairs are allowed into the main areas but unfortunately, because of space and insurance restrictions, push chairs must be left in the lobby. No animals other than special needs dogs are allowed into the club.
  • We have pool
  •  We have darts
  • We have poker
  • We have bingo
  • We have sports on TV
  •  We have music and dancing


We love them but we do have to make some rules for everyone’s comfort and safety.

ALL persons under 16 years:

  • Must be under the supervision of at least one responsible adult at all times.
  • Must not use the dart boards or the pool table that is used for matches.
  • They may use the other pool table under adult supervision.
  • Should be off the dance floor after the bands break. Provided the dance floor is not too crowded and the child is dancing with an adult we would prefer not to impose this rule but we will if we have to.


Are You A Member?

To ensure that only genuine paid up members enjoy the benefits of the Club, membership cards must be carried at all times that you are in the Club and must be shown on request.

Don’t forget that on group nights members and their full time partners are only allowed into the hall free if they can produce their membership card, otherwise the normal entrance fee will be charged for both persons.

Door staff have instructions to enforce this rule. Please do not abuse them.

It’s A No No

NO abuse, either physical or verbal can be tolerated at any time, including damage to the Club.

We are a member of SCUCA; anyone causing problems may be reported to all Stanford and Corringham clubs and could result in you being banned from all of them.


If you have a valid urgent complaint then please see a member of the Committee.

If you have a non urgent complaint then please email or write to the Committee.



The Dance Floor

For everyone’s safety we have a strict rule:

No glass or liquids are allowed on to the dance floor

Should any spillage happen, if necessary, the entertainment will be suspended while the floor is cleaned

Respect: When special entertainment is booked, please remember that the dance floor may become part of their ‘stage’, if this is the case please keep the dance floor clear at all times.

The rules above apply to all persons entering the club but are not shown in the rule book that you would have been given when you joined the club. The rule book shows the rules as originally written, plus the amendments that were added in order to keep the up to date. (So no, the subs are not £1 per year as stated on page two. Sorry!)
Below is a brief explanation of the main points that you may need to know but please read the rule book for other information. Any fees have deliberately been omitted because they will change over time.

Any person wishing to join the club must be over 18 and proposed and seconded by two paid up members who can vouch for the nominees character and respectability. Details of fees will be given and after the initial fee is paid and the application form filled in, the applicants details will be displayed for a period of time in a prominent position to allow for any objections before the application is submitted to the Committee.
(For information on the application form, go to ABOUT – FORMS – MEMBERSHIP)

The annual subscriptions are due on 1st January and must be paid by 28th January. Any persons who have not paid their membership by this date will be deemed to be in arrears and will not be allowed into the club until their subscription has been paid. Any person not paying their subscription by 25th February will cease to be a member of the club. If you have problems that may cause a delay in payment, please contact the club as soon as possible.

Please notify the Secretary of a change of address/contact details within 14 days.

Members shall cease to be members:
(i) By non payment of subscription. Any outstanding arrears and/or fines must be paid before a new nomination for membership can be submitted. (see subscriptions above)
(ii) By expulsion
(iii) By resignation
(iiii) By death

All members of the club are entitled to join the CIU, (club & institute union), and may enjoy all of the privileges associated with it. CIU members from other clubs may enter the club and purchase alcohol, although the club has the right to refuse admission or access to parts of the club if deemed necessary.

The annual general meeting is held in May where a financial report and an annual report will be presented. Any members wishing to propose a motion must give notice in writing to the secretary giving at least five days notice.
Special meetings may be called by direction of the committee or by requisition of at least 30 members stating the purpose of the meeting.

Following the AGM, paid up members may nominate persons for the committee positions with elections to follow. Should the committee fall below its maximum membership during the year, the committee may nominate a temporary committee member until the next elections.

Data Protection


General Data Protection Regulation

The Club will never give your personal data away to any unauthorised third parties. We are a WMCIU affiliated club and some data will need to be processed by them. You have the right to access all of your personal data, rectify anything that is inaccurate and object to it being processed in certain circumstances, or completely erased if you leave the Club.

How Do We Keep Our Prices So Low?

We are a members club and the yearly subs help us to plan ahead.

There are many volunteers, including the Committee, who run the club, run the raffles, help to keep the grounds clean and tend to the plants etc.

Help us to keep the prices low: support the Friday night raffle, the fortnightly raffle, and the Tote.

Please treat all Club property with respect and remember that food & drink purchased elsewhere are not allowed into the Club without express permission which is only granted under certain circumstances.
