Croats cost

Good crowd in the club last week for the England Croatia European Championship Qualifier.
Fantastic atmosphere as England got back from 2-0 down to draw level, everyone was really getting behind England and then........ouch 2-3, and we are out.
Everyone on a downer, except maybe the Jocks.
As that third Croat goal hit the back of the net, I thought (and this is sad)' My God that goal has just cost this club thousands of pounds in lost takings' (told you it was sad).
Not just our club, but hundreds of thousands of pubs and clubs in England.
No beer fuelled Summer afternoons or evenings watching England trying in vain to progress in a major tournament.
No flags of St George everywhere.
No John Motson wetting himself as England cross the halfway line.
No swearing at an inept England manager and pampered stars.
No getting to the club early to get a good seat to watch the match.
No goading kopites as Crouch misses another sitter.
No increase in bar takings.
Oh God, I'm depressing myself now-what the hell are we going to do???

Woolton .net

Its about time Woolton had it's own proper web site.
Local news, Forum where you can have a rant (eg about the chronic lack of parking space in the village, or why are there so many 86's and 79's but try and get a 78 from town after 5.30pm-no chance. I could go on)
There is even a page reserved for the Village club where someone can publicise upcoming events.One of my pet moans in the WVS is poor marketing of events.
Like the Halloween disco, which the Secretary (Sharon) had put a lot of work in on, but we hadn't advertised it enough.
Actually the disco was brilliant-quality music from 60's and 70's.
The smoking ban has hit us and every club in the UK, as has Tesco's and co selling off cans of lager at less than 50p.How can pubs and clubs compete with those prices?
We have to put on more events to attract our members.
