Not a well known sport but with a new Curling Rink near Tunbridge Wells (the only one in England) it seemed an obvious thing to try & perfect for a winter trip for the club. 16 of us went & were split into 4 groups of 4, 2 groups per lane, the instructor tried very hard to give us a clue as to what to do, most of which we promptly forgot!! we were advised to wear warm layers, they supply the shoes (just as well or none of would have been able to stand up on the ice) it is very slipper...Read Full Post »

This year our End of Season Run was a little different from usual, starting at The Great Danes Hotel Maidstone, although a large Hotel with a wedding show on they still looked after us very well, with a parking area & plenty of tea, coffee & biscuits also an allocated area for us to sit, we were really impressed, starting out of our usual area we travelled to Sussex & the lovely Ashdown Forrest, taking in some completely different roads, unfortunately no-one had tim...Read Full Post »

With the best weather for an August Bank Holiday for 48 years. Just one of my anorak facts. This is a totally free event sponsored by Dover Harbour Board, with numerous exhibitors, bands one of which was working it's way through the decades of pop music, Lesley & Mary were dancing, always a very strange thing to do when sober I feel, with different competitions taking place on the water & the Dover & Deal Lifeboats doing a display. The car show side was organised by the Dover Tran...Read Full Post »
