Just a quick reminder that on Friday 19th October we are running a University Challenge game, in conjunction with the Shirley Parochial Church Council, at St Michael’s church from 7.30pm.
Everybody is welcome, either to spectate or even to take part.
Tickets are now on sale for the WW1 Festival of Remembrance dinner, to be held at the Saracens Head, Shirley on Sunday 11th November at 5 for 5.30pm
Tickets are available from Peter Paviour, Debra Leeney and Lucy Dentith and cost £20.
Not long now till our first Group Dog Walk from outside the Saracen’s Head to the Sports Field. We hope the walks will be a regular event and we’re planning to hold them once a fortnight. The first walk will be on Tuesday 10th July and is planned to start at 7pm, although we might delay the start a bit if the weather is still very warm. Keep an eye on this blog, or the Calendar on this website for details. Water will be available at the field and we’re hoping to have some doggy paddling pools too.
We also hope to hold a Paw Party Event at the field on Saturday 2nd September. This will have a “Scrufts Dog Show”, fun and games plus food and drink.
We hope you can join us – you don’t even need a dog – all are welcome.
We installed a new combination lock today, along with some security chains on the hinge-side of the field gate. That should stop it ever being lifted off its hinges again.
If you need the combination for the lock, please get in touch with us.
On Sunday 6th May we held an informal training session for new members at the Sports Field. All of the machines were demonstrated and then used to great effect by our trainees. Mid-morning refreshments were provided, including some delicious freshly-baked sweet pastries from the new Church Lane Deli in Shirley. Even the sun turned up.
Thanks to everyone who found time to join us on the Bank Holiday weekend. We look forward to working with you all throughout the Summer Season.
