Centenary Party Time this Saturday

Yes we are in our 100th year and we will be celebrating this Saturday from 2pm to 6pm with our Centenary Party  – all our welcome and there will be lots for everyone to enjoy. Even if you are not a member of our Club please feel free to come down and enjoy the afternoon’s celebration with us.

As it is our Centenary lets have a little look back before we party on Saturday…..

Imber Court is a Club with a police heritage which we are proud of. You will notice this as you use the Club House, the facilities and grounds as there are many artifacts, pictures etc reminding us of the heritage. The club is also home to the Metropolitan Police Rugby, Football, Cricket and Bowls Clubs.

In respect of our history the land was purchased in 1919 with the original purpose of providing a training centre for the Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch which is still here (Police Horses will be part of our celebration this Saturday).  However not all the land was required and in the early 1920’s much of the land and meadows were turned into playing surfaces with monies that police officers donated themselves. A donation from The National Police Fund (Charity) also paid for the building of the main clubhouse.

The Club was ‘officially’ opened on 11th June 1929 by H.R.H. Prince George and has operated as a sports and recreation facility since then serving not only Police Officers and their families but also many families from our local community  (at our last count this numbered over 600 local residents).

Over the intervening years the Club has operated (as it still does today) as a non-profit making facility. This means any profits made (through our commercial activities) are always ploughed back into the Club, enhancing the facilities for all its users.

Becoming a member at Imber Court is a straight forward process and if you are interested pop in and talk to our staff, visit our website www.imbercourt.com   , email Julie.Duke@imbercourt.com or ring the office on 0208 398 1267 x 4 and ask for Julie our membership secretary.

 

 

Pimms & Prosecco

We’re so excited for the Happy Days festival that we’re going to start the party a little early. With a Pimms and Prosecco bar out in our garden. The greatest hits of Happy Days will be playing to get you in the mood, not that it takes much persuasion. We’ll also be selling regular drinks in the bar. It promises to be a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend.

Lauren in charge of the office

For us regular users of Imber we are not used to seeing Lauren sitting in the Office Manager’s chair. She is normally the very welcoming face of our Club working in our bars , restaurant and at functions.

Lauren is seeking a career in Events Management and it is clear already to all those that know her that she will be exceptional at it. In building her knowledge and expertise Lauren is taking advantage this week of the opportunities available at Imber for work experience and looks like she is thoroughly enjoying it.

Friday Night – The Dough Shack is at Imber for our members

I am really pleased to see the Dough Shack in our front car park at Imber on Friday evenings. You may recognise the guys running it as they spent many a happy time at Imber as children of our members. So it is great news that they have agreed to serve up their Pizza’s here and even better for us – a big discount for Imber members on production of their membership card.

So Friday nights , why not visit the Imber bar with friends, share the Pizza’s and maybe even shoot some Pool.

 

Imber Pool Manager…or John Lennon?

unnamed

On 29th March, Esher Resident Phill Marshall and ImberPool Manager aka John Lennon, will be putting on another fantastic live music event at Imber with a brand new show and, as seen in the past few years, a host of very talented local young musicians.

Phill’s uncanny resemblance to the original in his looks, voice and stage performances are well known locally and he’s been in Beatles Theatre shows in Britain and abroad for many years, alongside a very busy life running the Swimming School at Imber. This new show celebrates the life and music of the great John Lennon, comprising all the most memorable Beatles hits and songs from Lennon’s solo career. No shortage of songs there to simply watch and listen nor of those rockin’ numbers that always get the whole audience onto the dance floor for good old boogie, so put your dancing shoes on and come to Imbercourt for a night of world class music and a a lot of fun!

As in previous years all the young musicians take part in the main show as well as performing their own sets, matching the musicianship and high quality performance of the experienced, giving these young artists a real professional experience of the big stage. They always rise up to the challenge and live up to the expectations with great performances.

The Motive have been part of this event for a few years running and developed into an amazing band. They’re all at College now, ACM, Esher and Hampton Boys, and the band have just been put on the Artist Development Program at Metropolis Studios. This year they will be performing a full set of originals, the band now have thousands of followers and stream hits via Spotify.

The Circuits is a new band, all Year 11s from Hinchley Wood School apart from one from Tiffin’s. They will be performing covers but are already writing their own songs so watch the space for this new exciting band.

Scarlet Litster wowed the audience last year with her amazing voice and Theatrical style. Now at The Brit School of Music doing Musical Theatre, she has her eyes on the West End.

So if you fancy a night out enquire in the office or ring 0208 398 1267 (x4)
