Nene Valley Group – Latest News
This weekend saw Nene Valley at Geddington Youth Club – only 10 vans attended, 9 Nene Valley and 1 East Midlands, with several members cancelling due to ill health. Peggy and Alan stewarded for us, parked us all up in very neat lines and organised a few quizzes and a darts match for the weekend. Fun and games started in the hall after dinner with the first part of the darts match. Quite a few of the darts actually hit the dartboard, but quite a few missed the board and either entered the wall or the floor. Last year’s winner, Sandra, went out in the first round this year but Ann produced an amazing shot, missing not only the board, the wall and the floor, but shooting way over to the right and embedding itself in an Easter egg on the raffle table. Fortunately nobody sustained any injuries! Saturday dawned to high winds and intermittent rain. Having decided at coffee morning that several of us would take a wander down to the local hostelry for lunch, when it actually came to it only 2 couples actually made it – the rest of us wimped out – too cold and too wet. We were back in the hall for the rest of the darts match with the eventual winner being Mick. Peggy then arranged some quizzes in the evening which were not as easy as she promised. By Sunday the rain had subsided but the wind was still strong enough to make driving a bit difficult on the way home.
Our rally at the end of March (29th-31st) (booked originally for Barby Cricket Club) at Grenadier Lodge, Nuneaton has been CANCELLED COMPLETELY. Therefore our next rally will be 11th – 14th april at Barnstones C & C Park. N.B. For any members attending Barnstones with mobility issues our Vice-Chairman, Mick, will be bringing his car to transport you to and from the hall.
