Lake Yard Christmas Market

Saturday 1st December

Stuck for what to get Aunty Muriel for Christmas? Is your sister-in-law the most difficult person ever to buy presents for? Need to get the slightly over-sweaty man in Accounts something for Secret Santa this year?

Then pop along to the Lake Yard Christmas Market taking place on Saturday December 1st between 10am and 4pm. We’ll have a variety of mixed market and craft stalls all eager to show over their festive wares. Silver jewellery, gardening items, cards, prints, paintings, crafts and models: ideal presents from big to small. Also available will be children’s knitwear, recycled furniture, food hampers and vegan friendly nail polish (well, that’s what it says here). And just so your really important loved ones aren’t left out, there’s also a dog biscuits stall.

The Club Bar will also be open with something warm and spicy gently mulling no doubt along with hot food and snacks. It’s free entry so come along and support some local businesses and get your stockings filled to boot!

Santa Comes to Lake Yard!

Saturday 23rd December 2018 at 3pm

If there’s one place that Santa always makes a special visit to at Christmas, it’s Lake Yard in Hamworthy. He’s always happy to meet the well behaved little boys and girls from the Marina and Clubhouse (and he even has time for those that haven’t been quite so good). This year is no exception and Santa will be coming to the Lake Yard on Sunday 23rd December at 3pm during the Family Christmas Lunch. He generally leaves Rudolph and the team at home to save their energy for Christmas Eve and arrives via the sea on his special harbour launch.

The Lake Yard Quiz Night Returns

Tuesday 30th October
From 7.oopm

After a summer break, the much adored Lake Yard Quiz Night returns for its autumn & winter season on Tuesday October 30th from 7pm. Taking place on the last Tuesday of every month, the Quiz Night has a reputation for bringing out hitherto hidden traits of competitiveness amongst the normally genial Lake Yard crowd. It’s not so much the fabulous prizes on offer as the opportunity to walk around Lake Yard like you could give Professor Brian Cox a run for his money (should he ever dare to take you on). You might not have the biggest boat in the marina but if you win this prestigious event, for the next month the crowd will silently part at the bar as you walk into the Clubhouse (and not just because you’ve been at sea for four days).

Tickets are £8.50 each and include a tasty supper to keep the brain cells energised.

Call 01202 676953 or email for more details.
