A personal blog from the group's chairman, Shirley Poulton
Our walks programme is very active, offering a good variety of walks during the week and at weekends. Last Wednesday’s walk at Sherfield on Loddon was a very challenging one with big muddy puddles, huge amounts of mud, floods and 10 stiles. Oh! And I forgot. Rain, rain and more rain!! But it did’nt stop over 20 people turning up for the 6 or 4 mile walk and enjoying themselves in the pub afterwards with a good lunch and liquid refreshment.
We had a most enjoyable Skittles evening last Saturday. There were many exclamations of “yeah” and “punching of the air” as some of us made very decent and accurate shots at the skittles. We had a very enjoyable supper and Douglas did us proud with his offer of salads.
It was such a popular event that we had to close the list of attendees so do keep your eye on our events calendar and join us next time. We hired our skittle alley from the Owlsmoor Scout and Cubs Group and we were able to make a donation to them of £175, comprising of the raffle proceeds and part of the entrance fee.
The month of May sees both the Quiz Evening with pizza supper and Riseley Tea Rooms for afternoon tea. June is the annual Summer Coach outing to Chidham and August our Afternoon Tea event which this year is being held at The Seeby Hall, Sandhurst. September sees another annual Coach Trip to Hengitsbury Head. All events are bookable on our website.
We will be hosting a Walk Leader’s BBQ on Saturday 28th July as a thank you to all our Leaders for their continued time and efforts on our behalf. Without them we would not have such a good programme to offer so a very big Thank You to all of them.
