“In these difficult times, the club has been one of the few to continue maintaining the sociable atmosphere that its members are used to.

“The club has been going since 1995 and up until recently, has held regular activities such as walking, bowling, lunches, coffee mornings and social outings both home and abroad.

“Because of the current restrictions, the club aims to continue with regular talks and quizzes via Zoom and at the same time planning events for returning to some form of normality.”
