SYDENHAM CATHOLIC CLUB celebrated our 50th Anniversary Saturday 27 October 2018, and it was a thrilling occasion. The SE26 Massive was mobilised en masse. There was a buzz in the air and a feel-good factor that only close friends and family can generate. And that's the point really. Sydenham Catholic Club is family!

The usual suspects all turned up. They strategically positioned themselves around the bar and it's immediate surrounds. The social chatter was akin to background bird song, creating a pleasant ambiance. Meanwhile, entertainment was provided by the ever-green Ramblin' Pete, whose strumming and soulful voice had the dance floor rocking. Checkout the photos from the night which clearly shows the evidence that the spirit of 'Strictly' is alive and kicking in Sydenham.

To keep spirits up, the spirits were flowing and Guinness pumps were pushed to the limits. And a delicious buffet was on hand to regale those who had expended so much on the dance floor. And for those too, who were happy to watch from the side-lines. In fact, one young blonde lassie brought her own Alan Partridge plate and revisited the buffet on several occasions. Thankfully, the buffet was bountiful.

I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying
"I love you"
Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world. Oh yeah!
(And a wonderful little ol' club!)

It was a fabulous occasion. We hope the club can kick on from here with renewed memberships and the introduction of new bloods. We really need to secure the next fifty years!
