You don’t have to play darts to join in the fun and of course there will be a raffle as well.

STOOLBALL: The weather caused our Ladies home match against Hooe last Thursday to be postponed but the weather was kind to us on Sunday when 10 teams competed in our Mixed Tournament and in a thrilling final between last years winners Catsfield and Civil Service it was Catsfield who retained the shield with just one ball to spare. A big thank you to everybody who helped on the day and also to all the teams who made the day run smoothly. The Ladies are away to Icklesham on Tuesday[26th] 6.45p.m.
