Members enjoyed a surprisingly entertaining walk around Ryde Cemetery, led by Margaret Truckel who shared some fascinating facts about several of the graves there. Afterwards we went to Yelfs Hotel for our first meal together there for 18 months.Details
Our first fundraising since lockdown was lifted. We were blessed with a beautiful sunny afternoon at The Paddock where we enjoyed a raffle, tombola and a very entertaining knockout skittles match, with a welcome break for strawberries and cream.Details
Our members once again helped to marshal the annual Walk The Wight event, in aid of our local hospice. It was postponed from the usual date in May and we were treated to a beautiful sunrise as the walkers started off at 6am.Details
President David led a walk around Brading Marshes on the first warm and sunny evening for a while. It was a bit muddy underfoot but the countryside was stunning and butterflies were plentiful. We enjoyed a well-earned dinner afterwards.Details
A different kind of Swansong this year as we held it in a marquee, adhering to Covid rules. Rather than the usual formal dinner, members took their own picnics, drinks and chairs to watch Peter Wellington hand over the Presidency to David Langdon.Details
Club Members enjoyed being out and about again in our community on Bank Holiday Monday, when we took our Dice Game to St Helen's Village Fayre to raise some money for charity and cheer up a rather grey and chilly day.Details
