Committee

The MVC Committee is responsible for the overall direction and running of the Club. They meet regularly to discuss ideas, review policies and ensure the club is running as well as possible for the members.

The members of the committee work voluntarily to ensure all profits go back into the club, so it can continue to thrive and be the social heart of the community, offering live entertainment and a home-away-from-home.

Debbie Jones
Club Secretary

Why did you want to join the Committee?
I wanted to make a difference to the club, I love helping & working as a team. I want to make every visit to the club an enjoyable experience for everyone.

What do you enjoy about the MVC? 
I started using the club in 2006 when the dart team was short of a player and played ever since then on a Monday night. I love the live music on a Saturday night, meeting friends and dancing the night away.

This is my fourth year of running the meat raffle, which is quite hard work but worth every moment when I see the joy it brings so many people. It is great fun and I love seeing the club full.

Which other place(s) in Merstham do you enjoy? 
The other places in Merstham I enjoy are all the walks & nature reserves around especially Spynes Mere. A 6am walk around there, in the peace, tranquility, hearing the birds & seeing the sun rise sets you up for the day (unless you fall over & come home covered in bruises) lol




Gareth Jones
Committee Member

Why did you want to join the Committee?
I wanted to join the committee as I’ve always had a keen interest and fascination for club life. The people of Merstham have been very welcoming to my family since my move here in 2002 and this gives me an opportunity to give something back. 

What do you enjoy about the MVC?
Well there are quite a few. I’ve played for the bar billiards team for 10 years and met many new faces. I love the football nights and the entertainment is a good opportunity to “dress up” a bit. I’m looking forward to the end of covid when we can have some outings again.

Which other place(s) in Merstham do you enjoy?
Other fav places in Merstham. I particularly like the walks at the Bletchingly end of Merstham; Debbie and I have discovered many new walks since lockdown.

What do you enjoy about the MVC?
I enjoy meeting friends at the MVC, I love the banter around the club and the complete mix of people we have. Young and old, with different backgrounds, all getting along.
