As always, there’s such a lot going on at your Club. The roof works continue apace and the project to complete the new disabled WC is underway too. Last weekend saw the sell-out Quiz Night. A huge thanks to John D Collins for hosting the quiz, to all of you who came along and to Chef and our team for serving such a tasty supper whilst looking after our bars too. SUCH a fun evening! Our next big Club night is Bingo and Curry. Details below. And I should have seen this coming but there was quite the commotion at the Club on Wednesday as a visiting clairvoyant popped in. The event was so popular that, blimey, I can see into the future… they’ll be returning soon. This time, we’ll let you know the date in advance!
We will be in touch next week with details of the new Membership Subscription Rates for 2023/24 and some changes ahead. However for now, here’s this week’s news.

Croquet Season Opening | Saturday 25th March
Our Club has made a considerable investment in constructing a new purpose built croquet lawn. This project started at one of our AGM Meetings. John and Susie Anderson posed the question as to whether croquet could return to our Club following an absence of 30 years. And the answer was YES! The project was ably led by our Club President, Martin Tinsley and subsequently with the project management skills of Richard Everett and expertise of Steve, our Club groundsman. Funded by generous donations from Members and grants from the Croquet Association, this project has now finally come to its conclusion. The investment resulted in levelling and subsequently seeding the new lawn back in October 2021. The grass has grown over the last year and is now to a stage where it can be used as a full sized croquet lawn. Hurrah! 2023 will be the first year where the new lawn may be used for competitions and regular play.
The formal opening of the new croquet lawn will take place on Saturday 25th March. There will be a cutting of the ribbon to open the lawn at 1:30pm. The afternoon will be a celebration of croquet with an Alice in Wonderland theme (The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party which involves flamingos as croquet mallets and hedgehogs as croquet balls). No animals will be hurt in this re-enactment! The new lawn celebration will be fancy dress as any character from the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
Members and Non-Members are welcome to come and join in with our celebrations (and if they wish to they can come in fancy dress too – that is optional).
And if you are interested in playing croquet, please do get in touch to try it out for yourself. Details from the office.
