GROUP UPDATES

 Juy 2019 

The HISTORY group has been placed on hold as the former group contact Robert Bodjuniak has had to step down through ill health. Angela Hindley has kindly offered to become the group contact and would like to reinvigorate the group. There will be a meeting on the morning of 25 September for old and new members to discuss how to take the group forward. If you are interested, please let Angela Hindley or Susan Riddle know.

The popular ART APPRECIATION group is looking for someone to take over as tutor to the group when Hilary Tottmann leaves Norfolk. If you could help, group contact Nicky Diggle would be delighted to hear from you.

GROUPS WITH VACANCIES

This month we highlight our two CROQUET groups. CROQUET 1 meets from 10am to 12pm every Wednesday at Bodham Croquet Club, from which they borrow all the necessary equipment in return for £3 per member per session. The game they play is called Golf Croquet, a shortened form of Association Croquet – which means they can get in five or six games every Wednesday instead of playing one game all day! No special skills are required: some of the group have been playing for several years now, and they all picked it up as they went along, so are sympathetic to beginners: the basics can be learned in a single game. The skills developed are much the same as for Association Croquet, so it’s always a possibility for the enthusiast to ask to join Bodham Croquet Club and play the full game twice a week if desired. Group contact is Patrick Carpmael.  CROQUET 2 is very much aimed at beginners.

They meet at Bodham from 2 – 4 pm on a Wednesday under the expert guidance of group contact Harry Bruford. For more details look on the Groups page of the website
