Rambling Group Report

Our ramble on 20th September started from New Barn Lane, Shorwell. Four of us made our way gradually up to Chillerton Down, where the mast is. The weather was overcast but dry and good views were admired. We then descended, passing some ancient burial barrows on our left. We then turned right along the ridge to the south of New Barn Farm, where we once again admired pleasant views extending as far as the white cliffs of Tennyson Down and West High Down. As we descended into Shorwell village, we paused to watch a flock of swallows flying around above us. We came out on to the road, almost opposite the village shop and post office, where we turned right to walk back up to Wendy’s car. Despite recent wet weather, the route had not been wet or muddy. Our ramble of 3 miles was followed by lunch at The Crown.

Bowling Report September 2017

10 Pin Bowling resumed on Wednesday 6th September after our summer break. As we only had 4 players we were delighted to be joined by Jenny Goodall’s twin grandsons (aged 20) who livened up the proceedings! We split them, one on each side, and Wes achieved the highest score of 124. Wendy Mitchell was the highest W I player with her score of 115 which was very commendable as she had not played for some time, following surgery to her shoulder.

Our next date will be Wednesday, 4th October, 10am at L A Bowl, Ryde and, as always, we would be pleased to see any other members who would like to have a go – its good fun and the cost is £6.45 for 2 games and a tea/coffee/hot chocolate afterwards.
