Your Lovely Comments

The Club created a special page for you to comment on what the club means to you. Here are your lovely comments:

 "Happy Birthday to the best club around. Joined the club when I moved to the area and enjoy the live music on Saturday evenings and the football on the big screen. A very friendly club and great bar staff. Here's to the next 100." Stuart Dawson

 "The club has a relaxing surrounding and a very diverse membership, which shows the club in high esteem. I have personally enjoyed being on the committee for 15 years and helped organise many sporting events, the main one being with the appearance of Phil the Power Tayor. I remember Phil describing the club as playing in 'Buckingham Palace' high praise indeed. Also, the entertainment is very diverse and suits all the desires of the members. I have many good memories but the members do make the club what it is." David Cocks

 "David and I go on Thursdays to meet with other Insync members, we also go to the main club room. The Central club is very generous having Insync in the club. We've really missed going there, not only on Thursdays. The people we know in the main club are great, welcoming and very friendly. It will be so good to get back, hopefully not too far away." Judy Smyth

 "Simply thanks for all the good times and simply always being there. Thanks again" Michael Laird

 "I love Saturday night's with some great bands and a chance to get up and dance." Jennifer Newth

 "Looking forward to a decent band for a Saturday night, including Somethin' Else and The Rock N Sax Show." Malcolm Pickup

 "It is the best social club in Chandlers Ford with a relaxing, friendly atmosphere with local bands and a great range of lager beers and ales. Here's to the next 100 years!" Mark Hayes

 "Good place to watch football which justifies the higher bar prices than other local establishments and a picturesque beer garden out the back for those who want to drink a non alchaholic beverage. The club is great." Ash Churchill

 "Always feel at home there!" Pam French

 "Been a member since 1967. Congrats to the club on its 100 years. Andy and the Tuesday evening crowd are a great bunch of people to spend some time with before I get me curry. Hughie will be sadly missed." Chris French
