Vincent, Gordon and Andrew discuss the merits of strawberries

Saturday 29th June  was the hottest day of the year and was certainly felt by the team from Caterham and our own team playing in a U league match.  Sadly we did not win losing 4 games to 3.

JUNE 2nd

A most successful Open Day to celebrate the signing of the new twenty one year lease was held on Sunday 2nd June. A working party were at the club early to erect the gazebo, hang bunting around the grounds, blow up balloons and set out tables and chairs for our pop up tea room.

It was a slow start to the day with a few customers arriving for elevenses and a slow start for the taster session. The afternoon proved to be very different with many arriving for the taster session and the cream teas proving to be very popular. Clive gave a small speech prior to us raising our glasses of Pimm’s in a toast to the club.

Many thanks to all of you who baked cakes, helped in many ways during the day and of course the big tidy up at the end.

Eleven members joined the Bowlers for their Hog Roast (pulled pork) where we were warmly welcomed. To sum up our day it was voted a great success


Our first visit to Hever Festival Open-Air Theatre was on Friday 31st May to see Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense performed by The Little Bromley Theatre Company. The three members of the cast were kept on their toes producing this humours production. A very welcome Cream Tea followed.

On Saturday 25th May eight golf croquet players competed for the Tankard. An enjoyable day was had by all after a disappointing start when one of the entrants failed to attend. The non – playing manager stepped in to play and she would like to thank the competitors for all their help during the day. After seven hard fought fifty minute rounds Ron was presented with the Tankard Trophy for winning seven out of eight games.
