Thursday 12th December 2019. Christmas Lunch

Despite the awful weather we have been having lately, 63 members made it to Willeseley Park Golf Club for our Christmas Lunch. As usual, the Club provided an excellent combination of venue, good service and great food. Everyone seemed to have a good time.


Friday 26th July 2019. Bowls evening

On an evening that threatened rain, 16 of us tried our hand at Bowls, at Ashby Bowls Club on the Bath Grounds. The Club made us feel very welcome; they were patient with our efforts, teaching us the rules of the games and telling us how to improve our performance. We had a varied amount of success and judging by my group a lot of laughter. After playing we retired to the clubhouse for a well earned drink. A very good evening. If anyone is interested, the Bowls club will start next April with free coaching, I have details of this, so just contact me and I can pass on the details.


Friday 5th July 2019. Barn Dance

We held our barn dance this year at Blackfordby Village Hall, which gave us a bit more room for dancing------and dance we did ! The band were once again excellent, encouraging even the most reluctant dancers of us on to the floor. However the mistakes we were making, not knowing our left from our right, not being able to count in single figures, caused a lot of laughter and hilarity. And in some dances how some of us became separated from our partners is still a mystery. You cannot call us expert dancers!!! But it was FUN A good time was had by all, and on a rather warm evening, the bar was just what was required for a nice cooling drink
