    Derek Stuckey passed away earlier this month and his funeral was at Weston Crematorium yesterday 15th May 2024 at 2.30 pm. Derek and his wife Phyllis have been volunteers since 2013 when EnergEyes was formed. Five members of EnergEyes attended the funeral. Derek has been poorly for a long time and it was a blessing when he went to a better place. Our thoughts are with the family.

    It is with sadness and shock that I have to let you know Roger Bereton’s funeral was on 2nd May at Weston Crematorium. Roger was Paul Smart’s step dad and a volunteer with EnergEyes. My thoughts are with Paul and his family. Aileen Milsom, Chairman

    Annie’s funeral was well attended by her family and friends and members of EnergEyes. Annie became very poorly towards the end in hospital and she died of pneumonia. She is free from pain and discomfort now. It is a blessing. I miss my very good friend so much. Aileen Milsom

    Race night is always a fun night with a few groans of my horse is asleep mixed with woops of ive won. So much fun is had by all. Also would not be so without the support of Tom and his support staff and generous punters. Massive thanks to you all. You genuinely do not appreciate just how much it means to us all both as a club and individuals. We really do appreciate everything you do for us. Long may it continue.

  8. AileenMilsom says:

    I wish to say a big Thank You to the staff, clientele, members and friends of EnergEyes for their continued support of the Race Night at the Regency Pub last night. It was a wonderful fun evening, as usual. Some won on the horses and pigs and some didn’t win anything. However, it’s the taking part that counts.
    Best wishes, Aileen, Chairman

  9. AileenMilsom says:

    Yes it was Michelle and a free buffet thrown in. We have such fun with the members and volunteers. It was nice to see Kath at darts as well, her first time. Kath was the highest female scorer and Jason the highest male scorer. The younger ones will have to pull their fingers out with this competition now. Photos will be on the website later today. Aileen Chairman

  16. Jayne Coopey says:

    I just feel compelled to say this to all members ( friends). Everyone of us has our own unique reason for joining energeyes. Without our invaluable selfless time giving volenteers we would not be where we all our now!! Words just cannot express our gratitude to EVERYONE involved in making our trips and entertainment happen and those who work tirelessly behind the scenes. (Who know who they are). Many more fun times ahead long may we reign!

    1. AileenMilsom says:

      Thanks you so much Jayne for those heartfelt words. We know we are appreciated and have made lifelong friends with all the members.

  17. AileenMilsom says:

    Sorry you can’t be with us Jayne because of work. I have asked the members who are attending Phillip’s funeral to wear their EnergEyes tops and Hoodies in respect to Phillip. We will also be thinking of our members and volunteers who have gone before him and made a safe and happy place for him.
    Aileen xx

  18. Jayne Coopey says:

    Sad news. No doubt he will meet all our other missed energeyes friends and cause an absolute riot between them all. Rip. As i am unable to go i will be wearing my energeyes top in his memory please join me in his memory if you would like to.

  19. AileenMilsom says:

    One of the first members of EnergEyes, Phillip Watts, 69 years young, passed away on Friday 28th February 2022 at Weston General Hospital, after a short illness. His funeral is to be held on Wednesday 16th February at St Andrews Church, Congresbury at 11.30 am and afterwards at the Memorial Hall. I wish to send our condolences to his family and friends and let them know they are in our prayers and thoughts at this very difficult time. Phillip was a true gentleman and we will all miss his laughter and cheekiness. Aileen
