Sadly, it has become clear that it is likely the remaining events we had planned for members this year are going to have to be postponed until 2021. Our priority will be to re-schedule a number of events. The Darts and Domino finals (Darts will be Hepple v Hedgeley and Dominoes Thropton v Stocksfield) will go ahead as soon as possible and the draw for next year’s full competition can be done so that event can run over the summer months.

Our usual Domino Drive at Stannington would be a great way for a lot of us to meet up again. Our volunteers to host Carpet Bowls event, Cambo WI, and Bellingham WI to host Car Treasure Hunt are both still willing to go ahead. A new venue was already being considered for the Golf Challenge. Events such as our popular Fun Quiz and August Stroll will be in the schedule along with new events. These include Ancestry and Tai Chi.

It goes without saying that this programme depends on whatever guidelines for activities are still in place but let us hope we can meet again soon. As ever, any ideas you have going, again are most welcome.  Meanwhile stay safe and well.
