Denviles House

 

Welcome to the Denvilles Club Web Site

Denvilles Club is a Private Members' Social Club and has a High Class Restaurant

'ChefSam@33'. The Restaurant is run separately to the Club and is open to both members and the public. Denvilles Club is situated approximately half a mile east of Havant Town Centre. Denvilles House dates back to the 19th Century and sits in extensive grounds with ample free car parking. The club facilities are available to hire for Private Functions.

Denvilles Club is affiliated to the Association of Conservative Clubs.

 

The Club will provisionally reopen on Monday 17th May. Watch this page for the latest news

Dear Friend(s)
Firstly, after all that has happened in the last year, I do hope you are well and are looking forward to some socially distanced freedom now that so many of us have been vaccinated. While it is good to think of meeting up with family and friends we must follow the rules in order to stop the transmission of Covid-19 so that we can look ahead to the rest of the year without the threat of lockdowns and without the Club being closed down (again)!

The committee has taken the decision not to re-open next Monday 12 April because we feel that the weather is too unpredictable for outdoor service only and it would be unfair to expect our members to sit outside in wind, rain and chilly temperatures

We have decided, however, to re-open on Monday 17 May when we can welcome members indoors and outside with social distancing of 2 metres as it was when we had to close in December 2020. Unfortunately it is not financially viable for Chef Sam to open while social distancing regulations exist but hopefully he will be back with delicious food as soon as the regulations are relaxed which will be in June – if we all behave ourselves in the meantime.

Sadly I have to advise you that Eddy Kemp, husband to Chrisy and father to Chef Sam, Danielle, Toby and Justin, passed away on 24 March. His funeral is next Tuesday 13 April, at The Oaks but of course the number of attendees is restricted at this time so Club members are not able to attend. Please see our website for details of a tribute page that they have set up online so that friends and family can leave their memories, messages, etc. I know they would love you to contribute to it. We may also receive an online link to view the service – again, check the website for this.

Assuming all goes well with Boris’s roadmap we shall be opening the Club doors again on Monday 17 May and we shall be opening in style with a Coffee Morning from 10am to 12 noon, but without a speaker. We figured you might like to come along and take the opportunity to chat to friends you may not have seen since December last year. The Club Room, Panel Room and Restaurant will be open and available for you to sit, enjoy a coffee and chat and we all look forward to seeing you again. Please remember that it will still be necessary to wear a face mask when walking about the Club and service is at table only. We intend to hold another Coffee Morning on Monday 21 June and again on Monday 17 July when hopefully social distancing will be a thing of the past and we can welcome Timespan to give us an entertaining and interesting talk.

As we hope to open on Monday 17 May, in general our opening hours initially will be like those we were following last December, as follows:
Monday to Friday 12 noon to 8pm
Saturday 6pm to 11pm
Sunday 12 noon to 4pm
Please wait for more information about May to find out if we shall be operating a booking system on Saturday evenings.

We shall be able to open the Snooker Room again in May, initially just one table at a time for up to 4 people and we shall resume the booking system as soon as we reopen, but for the first week we shall assume the same bookings each day as in December 2020. Once we are open please call us if this is not convenient for you.

We are planning to hold Bingo once a month on a Wednesday afternoon in May and June so watch the notice boards and website for details of dates, etc.

Hopefully if social distancing rules are relaxed from 21 June we shall be able to open the Card Room again for members and the U3A groups to play cards and we are looking forward to that and we hope you are as well.

Assuming the roadmap confirms all these dates we plan to hold the Club AGM on Wednesday 28 July, holding the nomination and election of officers and committee members before that in July.

If you haven’t yet got round to renewing your membership there is still time, just for this year, so please contact me, Pat Bolton, at secretary@denvilleshouse.com, and I look forward to taking some money off you – for the best possible reason - to keep the Club running for you to use.

As for Club holidays, the trip to Ireland in 2020 was rescheduled to May 2021 but when we had to close in December 2020 it was obvious that the holiday could not happen in 2021 – there were too many unanswered questions to proceed, so Debbie contacted the tour operator and together they agreed to reschedule the holiday to a trip to Torquay later in 2021, staying in a hotel from Monday 20 to Friday 24 September. The details are on the website but if you have no access to the website please email me, secretary@denvilleshouse.com for a copy of the details and I will send them to you together with a booking form. The cost is £319 per person but there are very few single rooms left without a supplemental charge.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in May as long as Boris says we can! It has been a long time since we closed on 18 December 2020 and we miss you all.

Cheers, Pat
