The Village Hall hosted a Games and Curry Night at the beginning of March, and judging by the smiles in the photos below, it was much enjoyed by the participants. Most of us were trying not to count the years that had passed since we last played table tennis, dominoes or tiddly-winks and also trying not to be too inept.
Guy, who’s hand was very clearly out of action in a bandage and sling, should probably have been given a generous handicap. But having said that, he still managed to out-play several of us at table tennis!
Elaine demonstrated how to play Quoits……….
………… and although she made it look easy, not all of us were able to emulate her style (as the 3 ‘misses’ in the photo show).
All thoughts of winning, high scores and personal bests were quickly forgotten when, after a flurry of activity in the kitchen, a delicious selection of curries appeared, followed by home-made ice-cream and sorbets. A great finale to the evening.
Later in the month, a somewhat less energetic but equally sociable Coffee Morning was held – the first of the year. As ever, there was an excellent spread of goodies, including warm pancakes made on the spot, savouries, cakes and biscuits.
