Carpet Bowls is back at the clubhouse from Monday, 25th September.  It doesn't matter if you haven't played before, the obstacle in the middle of the short mat makes for some hilarious bowling techniques.  This is a fun way to while away the winter months until the new season starts and is a great social get together.

The cost is just £1.00 per person per session and includes tea / coffee and biscuits during the half-way break.

Whether you are an experienced Crib player or a beginner, why not come along to our Wednesday Crib Night at the clubhouse, starting on 4th October.  If you have your own Crib board and cards, then please feel free to bring them along, but don't worry if you haven't, we do have spares.

Crib nights are a great social get-together and we even open the bar.  As with Carpet Bowls, the cost is just £1.00 per person and includes tea / coffee and biscuits half-way through the evening.

Contact Dave or Pat Hart for further information.
