Football sports and social club

Can you or would you like to help ?

It's finally come to the point where we have to vacate the premises. We have looked and asked about many places for temporary accommodation with no luck, so we still have nowhere to go. The Thomas Gifford Trust have paid for planning permission for us to go on the end of the new community centre near the doctors. But we have been told there is no money available for our new club house; so we have to self build it and pay for it ourselves. We are asking for your help and support in anyway you can eg.
Help Fundraising
Help in applying for grants
Supply of materials for all areas
Construction of building
All trades persons required

If you can help in anyway then please get in touch by either popping into the club or email

We are also looking for somewhere dry and secure to store all our interior of the club until our new club house is built, unless we can find somewhere to go before the 4th April.

We have been running since the mid 80's and started off as part of the old Spendlove centre (girls changing rooms) before moving over to what was known as the music room, then the metal room as would be known to the people who went to the secondary school here.

The club has been run by many dedicated local people and people from surrounding areas for all of these years.

We know our club is not pleasant to look at but it has served us well all these years considering it was only supposed to be temporary for 2 years and we are still here 17 years later. We have done all the maintenance and up keep to the best we could for all these years ourselves. We have now been on this actual site for 30 years.

The club is a family orientated place,where we welcome everyone and anyone can be a member.

We have a darts team and an Aunt Sally team, cards, dominoes, and for the children we have a large jenga, Connect 4, and floor snakes and ladders,etc

Last year we held two fund raisers; one was a children's & adult's Aunt Sally competition where we raised money for the children's ward at the John Radcliffe hospital, and a darts competition where the money we raised went to the Royal British Legion. We have events on special occasions we put on discos for Halloween party's, Easter egg hunt, children's Christmas party where Father Christmas makes a special vist to give all the children presents. All of these are free off charge. We also have great bbq's. The men's football also hold quiz nights and race nights here. After football on a Saturday afternoon most of the footballers and supporters go back into the club for a catch up and watch the sports results come in?

Where else in Charlbury could you do this with the whole family?
