Valentine’s Tea, Raffle and Quiz – 14 February 2024
Not to do anything by halves, we marked Valentine’s Day with a Valentine’s themed tea (including home-made scones with clotted cream and jam), a raffle and a quiz on films with a romantic twist.
The cricket pavillion was unusually quiet while we tucked into the tea but noise levels returned to normal for the quiz and raffle. The winning table managed a perfect score of 27 out of 27, with second place achieving an impressive 26 out of 27, proving that either romance is not dead, or that we spend too much time watching films. Finally, well done to those who picked up a raffle prize.
The Oast House Community Choir – 7 February 2024
We had a real treat with a visit from the Oast House Community Choir who entertained us with a number of favourites, with live guitar accompaniment.
For those who wanted to sing-along a song-sheet was also provided. This was the first time that a choir had been the feature of one of our special events and we are very grateful to the Oast House Community Choir for making such an enjoyable occasion for the Club.
Christmas Party – December 2023
Our final meeting of 2023 was a great opportunity for a Christmas Party.
This was very well attended and we enjoyed all the usual Christmas party fare such as sandwiches, crisps, mince pies, sausage rolls and pork pies, among other tasty treats. We also held a raffle in aid of the Stroke Club with some excellent prizes up for grabs, generously donated by local business and the community. A great end to 2023 and we look forward to 2024.
Coronation Party – May 2023
To mark the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla on 6th May 2023, the Stroke Club meeting on 3rd May served as an ideal opportunity to celebrate with cake, scones and other traditional street party fare. Queen Camilla, or someone remarkably like her Royal Highness, popped in.
Christmas Lunch 2022
On 7th December we had our annual Christmas Lunch. This was held at Gillingham Golf Club. 30 Members sat down to a lovely 3 course lunch plus warm mince pies and tea and coffee. This was followed by our Christmas raffle, with over 20 prises to be won.
We would like to thank everybody for donating such lovely prizes.
Thursday 13th February saw members of the club coming together to enjoy lunch.
