Club barbecue - and World Croquet Federation presentation

Sunday 29th August saw a well attended and well received club barbecue from around 5pm, with around 60 members attending, including a good number of our 2021 new members. This coincided with the second day of the GC Top Eight (Ricki Savage memorial) tournament, and once their games were finished, the players joined us. Attendees feasted on marinated chicken, burgers, sausages, baked potatoes, salads and ice creams. Many thanks to Diana Plant and the social committee for organising this and to the large team of volunteers involved in catering, setting up, front of house etc.

Ian Burridge, in his capacity as President of the World Croquet Federation, took the opportunity to present a gift to Stephen Mulliner, who is retiring from his role as Secretary General of the WCF, in front of the assembled throng. (Both Stephen and Ian were taking part in the tournament.)
