Programme update!

July 31, 2014

Barking & Dagenham Plus are preparing for Autumn already! Whilst others think about getting out the winter duvets, putting the central heating on, and finally getting round to fixing that light in the kitchen, we here at Plus instead come up with a packed programme of Activities. Amongst other things we will be venturing round the countryside to Cambridge and to Hunstanton, for the famous National Holiday known as WASH. We will also be getting a lot of ten-pin bowling practice in for the Area Championship in December.

For more details, please see out Events page.

Community Group Gets a Full House for its Annual Poker Tournament

July 25, 2014

Members of Chadwell Heath-based community group “Barking & Dagenham Plus” were feeling flushed with success last tuesday when they staged their Annual Poker Tournament at the White Horse Inn. So popular did it prove that card-sharps from all over Essex converged on the venue to test their Texas Hold’em skills.

The overall winner of the evening was Miss Gemma Crader, 23 (see picture).

Gemma has a winning pair.

King’s Lynn Mid Summer Weekend 2014

May 28, 2014

This from Paul Catterwell of Kings Lynn Plus:


Hi all

It’s hard to believe that this year is the 10th anniversary since we moved to the current venue for the king’s Lynn Mid Summer Weekend.

This year its from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th July.  Come join the 50 –60 we have every year!

For those who have never been before the cost is £10.00 for 2 nights camping either in the woods or on the playing field, all non-meat for the Saturday BBQ and for the disco on Saturday night.  For one nights camping, BBQ and disco its £7.00 and for the BBQ and disco only its £5.00.

We arrive anytime after 3pm on Friday and chuck tents up.  For those not wanting the hassle of tent erecting many people sleep in the hall.  Friday night is traditionally a relaxing evening and we organise a Chinese and Pizza run.  On Saturday those who don’t sleep half the day can visit Beers of Europe, Sandringham, Ely or whatever else takes their fancy.  We light the BBQ about 5pm, and start the disco around 8.30pm.

Theres no bar there so its bring your own beer and meat for the BBQ

The venue is  Tottenhill Village Hall, Whin Common Road, Tottenhill, Norfolk, PE33 0RS

If you have seen strange people dressed as pirates and monsters from Doctor Who wandering the streets of Barking and other parts of Essex, you will be pleased to know that their efforts have finally paid off! Last Tuesday, the members of local social group “Barking & Dagenham Plus” handed over the results of their charitable fund-raising activities to Woodford Green based children’s Hospice “Haven House.”

Rebecca Cushway, Community Events Manager at Haven House, visited the group at their venue, the White Horse in Chadwell Heath, and gave a presentation on the work of the charity, which includes providing an enjoyable environment to children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions – and giving much needed relief to their parents. She was then presented with a cheque for £600 by Richard Leach, the club’s chairman.

Richard said:

“We usually do a sponsored walk every September. We have also staged successful Darts Tournaments and other fund-raising events throughout the year, and in 2014 we intend to better our last year’s total – and all the time providing a fun social atmosphere for our members.”
