Successful and Sunny Open Day

May 18th 2015

The Open Day on Saturday 9th May was a great success. The weather was fine and sunny and over 35 visitors turned up. The visitors enjoyed playing some basic croquet and were encouraged to take part in a number of fun competitions. As a result of the day between 14 and 20 people signed up for the Beginners Course. Hester has subsequently advised that she now has 25 enrolled on the course.

The results of the competitions held were as follows:

‘Shove-halfpenny’          Visitor                   Lorne Loxterkam

Member                Hester Henebury

‘Hit the peg’                     Visitor                   Susan Prescott

Member                Tony Curson

‘Run the Hoop’                Visitor                   Lorne Loxterkam

Member                Richard Jelly

The proceeds of the day, from refreshments and games donations, resulted in approximately £150 going to Dorothy House Hospice.

Thanks to those members who turned up and helped with the Visitors.
