MLTC Summer open day and fete 2018 – A good turnout with profit!

Many many thanks…..
to all the organisers and participants in the Margate Lawn Tennis Club’s Open Day and Fete 2018.  Well advertised and superbly organised we had a good turnout and a steady stream of people visiting The sun shone and the rain stayed away, but maybe not quite the visitor numbers from 2017 and our bumper year of 2015.  Loads of fun though and some entertaining stalls to visit.

A massive thank you goes out to : Keel Toys, Thanet Motor Company, Yvonne Forbes, John Hills, Gavid Vickers, Bookers Cash and Carry, Hornby Hobbies and all those people who donated various prizes for the weekend event and Grand Raffle.
A number of these donations have not as yet been won and will of course be used to further raise money for our Courts appeal.
Once again a very big thank you.

It was unfortunate that the numbers were down on last year but we did manage to come out of it with a small profit.
Fete activities including food raised £596
Costs inc Prizes, food plates etc £362
Profit £234
Bar takings £240 approx profit £120
Raffle ticket sales on day £108
New Memberships on day £380
Overall clear profit takings = £842
We also have acquired good stocks of ice creams, Burgers Sausages and condiments to create a further £350 minimum profit so overall a great success.
Best wishes
Chris Harwood
Chairman M.L.T.C.
