The Oakstones Club

The Oakstones Club

 

The club was founded in 1959 and we celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2009. The club is for Over-Fifties and meets once a month in the village hall at 2.00p.m. on the first Wednesday. Members come from Stones Green, Little Oakley and Dovercourt as well as from Great Oakley itself.

We hold two outings each year and an annual Coffee Morning to increase our funds.

Each April the club hosts a Cribbage Tournament in the Village Hall in conjunction with Age Concern Essex. Players from other clubs all over Essex send teams and the winners are awarded the Great Oakley Rose Bowl. The tournament has been running for 46 years.
