A club which has been at the centre of its community for decades is on the lookout for new members.

The Avenues Social Club, in Dagenham Road, Romford, has 150 members but hopes to welcome some newcomers.

It hosts a range of activities throughout the year.

Committee member James Perkins said: “We hold parties, a couple of trips each year to events such as horse races, charity nights and darts and pool competitions.

“And a couple of men’s and women’s darts teams run from the club.”

Fundraising events are an important part of the club’s schedule.

It recently hosted a night for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

More than 90 people came and more than £1,200 was collected.

Mr Perkins said: “We’re very happy to have raised this amount.”

The club also has a collection for Saint Francis Hospice, Havering-atte-Bower, which has raised more than £300.

Residents from Romford, Rush Green, Barking and Dagenham and the surrounding area are encouraged to become members.

Mr Perkins said: “The club is easy for local people to get to and it has a friendly atmosphere.”

For more information, call Mr Perkins on 01708 754399.
