Caythorpe and Frieston Sports and Social Club

The law relating to Charities makes it practicably impossible for a registered charity, such as the Playing Field Committee to sell alcohol. As a consequence, if people and organisations would like the sale of alcoholic drinks in connection with sporting or other occasions, the usual practice is for the creation of a members club which is allowed to run a bar. This is why Caythorpe Sports and Social Club came into existence. Everyone is very welcome to apply for membership.

The Social Club meets every month and in effect, is a small enterprise where the profits are ploughed back into the Playing Field and the sports teams which use it. For example, it has made a grant towards the project to provide new children's play equipment. Every month the Social Club makes a payment of £250.00 to the Playing Field for the use of the bar in the pavilion. The annual village fireworks display is also organised by the Social Club.
