1970/1

1970/71

In 1970  the Club erected a notice board at the end of Coombe/Woodberry Drive and In  1971  the first 5 a-side Football Teams were organised by Bruce Anderson.  The Club entered three teams in a Sittingbourne competition and two in a Teynham competition.

Unfortunately the Club records for  1970  are missing but undoubtedly many social events took place at this time the Christmas dance for example took place at Bowater's Gillingham where the first  Miss Woodcoombe  was selected, there was a bonfire party, there were also raffles for Wembley tickets. The fund raising " Instant Jackpot" which had been used for obvious reasons was added to in 1971  with the first Grand Christmas Draw. (This draw actually made a profit of £35.) } It was also in 1971  that the Club took out its first Public Liability Insurance costing £5, this was for Bonfire night. A visit to "Showboat" by members at the end of 1971  and a Children's outing, showing the continued versatility of the membership.

Junior Football  was first discussed in March 1971 , and also that year a Dinner & Dance was held in Gillingham at a cost of thirty bob (£1.50) , there was also a theatre trip to see "No Sex Please We're British". A trip to London and Heathrow took place at a cost of five bob (25p) per person.
