Open day celebrating NHS 70th birthday

Sunday 8th July: 10.00am – 6.00pm

We celebrated NHS70 with an open day. In glorious weather we entertained 60-70 people during the day including councillors Ed Hopper and Isobel Ballsdon as well as our MP, Matt Rodda. We shared a special cake for the occasion and collected £65.90 toward the Park’s Defibrillator Fund.

Birthday party (1st July)

Club Open Day

Monday 28th May: 10.00am – 6.00pm

All members and guests welcome. AC and GC all day. Bring sandwiches and sunshades!

May Day Club Afternoon (Club Fun Day)

Sunday 6 May 2018: 2.00 – 6.00pm

Taking cover?

Unfortunately, the planned Easter afternoon of croquet for members staying at home was washed out. As the sun must surely return by early May, we are offering the same programme of informal croquet next Bank Holiday.

This is an opportunity to come along and play short games of Association and Golf croquet. Also, to learn the basics and try One Ball croquet.

Basic tuition will be on-hand.

The precise programme of events will be tailored to those members attending. Whatever, games we will play the emphasis will be on informality and enjoyment.

No need to stay all afternoon; just come along, see what is on offer and whether it interests you.

Tea, coffee and wine will be available.
