130th Garden Party – 19/8/2017
We celebrated our 130th anniversary with a garden party held at the club on Saturday 19th August. A great time was had by all, with many trying their luck at the coconut shy, tombola and raffle. The cake stall was a huge success, given that not one of the many delicious cakes baked and donated to us were left over.
A mixed doubles tournament was also held and the winners, Lewis Clark and Lyn Grylls, are pictured here with Ken Lupton (Club President) who presented them with their prizes.
