Poster Competition

As we come out of the horrid COVID episode we have begun to receive details of local events that are planned, we really hope that they can go ahead and we can start to get back to some level of normality!

The events have been added to the diary and detailed further on the events page. The accompanying posters have been entered into the poster competition, to be judged later in the year.

So, the poster competition has been restarted with the couple of eligible entries we have received so far, lets hope that things get better from now on.



St Mary’s Summer Festival – Concert by Paul Wright (St Mary’s organist)

If there's a particular reason why a particular piece is your favourite please do let us know.

When: Fri June 25 7:30 pm

Play Croquet

Croquet: six hoops, four balls, a mallet and a patch of grass. Sounds easy enough?
However croquet is a game of skill and strategy, angles, tactics and guile. A bit like snooker on grass. It is enjoyable at all levels and you don’t need to be an athlete to play it.
There is an excellent facility in Basingstoke with a top class lawn and a cosy clubhouse.
If you would like to give it a try we will be having an open day on Saturday 26th June. Just turn up any time between 10am and 2pm. Equipment will be provided, just wear casual comfortable clothes and flat shoes. There is no charge for try-out. While you are waiting we have some excellent training videos on the website - well worth a look.
If you can’t make it that day please use the contact form on the website and we can arrange a convenient time for you to come for a try-out.
We are based in St Andrews Road in South Ham, please see our website for more information:

When: Sat June 26 10:00 am

From 11am to 4pm, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th, a Summer Fete with stalls, barbecue, cream teas, refreshments and music will be held as restrictions allow on Saturday, while on Sunday there will be a more relaxed feel with the raffle and refreshments continuing.

When: Sat June 26 11:00 am
