Future programme

27th October

This was the group’s last meeting of the year as the croquet season officially finishes with the end of Summer Time. We ended the year with a record turnout of 12 players, of which it was said that many of them may prove to be first-class croquet players. We were also blessed with fine weather for a change, something that has been frequently missing this year. We shall start again in the Spring when the clocks go forward for BST.
