Monday Club

Monday Club met at The Pavillon at Dunchurch Hall on Monday 13th May hosted by Christine Kirkwood. Since  Christine was unable to organise a speaker from the NSPCC, as she had hoped, plan B was a Beetle Drive.  This involves tables of four people with pencil and paper with the image of a Beetle on it.  Each body part has a different value and we had to throw a dice  to the correct value to complete the beetle. The person with the highest score moved on a table and so we managed to play with almost everyone by the end. Jeff Arnold was the winner. A fun and sociable activity for a wet day !

We followed with tea and lovely cakes and a raffle, the takings from which were given to the NSPCC.

Many thanks to Christine for her hospitality.

The next meeting is Monday 24th June,  for a visit to Kenilworth to see a garden which is in the Open Gardens Scheme with more  great  tea and cake !

There were two meetings on May 8th. The afternoon was a very special guided walk round part of Radford Hall Farm with a talk by Henry Marriott about the trees planted there over the last 40 years. It was a beautiful day to sit out in the garden and enjoy ‘a cuppa and cake’ afterwards. Thank you.
