The Club was formerly known as Polegate Winemakers’ Guild and was established in 1979.
Meetings are held in the Coffee Lounge of the Polegate Community Centre on the fourth Tuesday of the month and commence at 7.30pm. There are talks on various subjects, wine tastings, social evenings and a Christmas dinner/party, all of which are enjoyed by our 40+ members, some of whom make their own wine. The Club is affiliated to the Sussex Federation of Winemakers and our members attend functions organized by them and Wine Clubs around Sussex, including BBQ’s, dances and an annual weekend held at the Afton Hotel in Eastbourne. We also run a Saturday coffee morning at the Centre two or three times a year. The subscription of £5.00 is payable in April and members pay £1.00 (guests £1.50) each evening, which includes tickets for the raffle. Everyone is welcome to come along.
