David Hopper RNLI Charity London Marathon Run Update

Published by under Members

Hi Everyone,
Just a little update after the quiz on Thursday. With all of your help we managed to raise £1025, smashing the £2300 target, totalling £2900 overall! An absolutely staggering amount. I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness and generosity.
A massive thank you again to Jane, Debbie, Barry, Izzy, Alex Gibson and Steve Hopper for helping with logistics. Also thanks to Howard in the kitchen and the bar staff. Thanks to the Gourmet Deli Co. John Barry salon, Wild Health, and everyone that donated gifts for the raffle.

Now all I have to do is run 26 miles, can’t be that hard right?

Hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanks again for supporting the RNLI.

Best wishes, David

Catering at TBYC

Published by under Catering

Dear Members, Visitors and all that have enjoyed the catering at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club for private events.


The catering Manager Howard Fruin, due to personal reasons, has tendered his resignation to the club.


On behalf of all club members we would like to thank him for all of his hard work during his employment with us.


Howard’s dedication was evident through his commitment in supporting our sailing and social calendar providing excellent food that was very much appreciated.


We wish him well in his future ventures and look forward to seeing him as a member socially around the club  and I hope, out on the water.


Howard remains for one month and we would appreciate support for him in his final weeks as Catering Manager.

We would like to assure members that normal service will remain whilst exploring the very best for the club.


Kind regards


Steve Hopper  Commodore

Catering at TBYC

Published by under Catering

Dear Members,


From the afternoon of Friday 22nd , all day Saturday 23rd and Sunday the 24th of March the Catering Manager, Howard Fruin is away on annual leave.


I have secured a “Relief Chef” for this period whom I am assured is very capable and he comes highly recommended.

He will be working with Howard Friday lunch time.


I am able to announce that the current catering menu’s for all days will remain in place and will be available.

The relief chef is Lucas Wiland and he has worked at many well-known places as head chef. I would be grateful if members could support him as they do Howard.


I look forward to seeing you all using the catering facilities this Friday and Weekend.


Kind regards


Wayne A Miller

Vice Commodore.
