Winter Social Programme
Everyone enjoys the season which always ends all too soon. However, there are consolations in the shape of the various winter social activities which have proliferated in the last two years, partly because of our growth in membership.
2019 started with
The regular Friday night skittles evenings continued as popular as ever. They provide an opportunity for people to keep in touch as they compete for the cup.
We also had a new programme of winter socials starting with an Italian evening in November. The Clubhouse was transformed into an Italian restaurant serving lasagne and garlic bread. This was followed by a quiz and a variety of games. Photos
Regular social roll ups at the Derwent Hotel took place right through the winter and proved to be a very popular activity as were the Ladies' coffee mornings each of which revolved around a demonstration of a craft. We had box making with Val Prall, candle -making with Wendy Ashley, Christmas crafts with Joan Saunders, doll making with Louise Bird, art with Irene Fletcher and cathedral windows patchwork with Mary Hall.
We have a reputation as a warm and welcoming club and the willingness of members to get involved in the organisation of bowling and social activities bears this out.
