Bakewell Croquet Club held its AGM in The Friends’ Meeting House on March 7th. Outgoing chairman, Bill Robinson, reported on a successful season in 2017. Forty five members enjoyed a variety of events both on and off the lawns. Congratulations to Steve Marsh and Tim Spray winners of the Founders’ Cup and the Chairman’s Cup. Two teams played in the East Midlands League. Well done to the A team who finished half way up Division One. The B team (after some close matches) came bottom of Division Two.
Congratulations to Jean Peters our new Chairperson and thanks to Allen Flatman and Ann Riley who have agreed to continue as treasurer and secretary for the 2018 season. Many thanks also to retiring chairman Bill Robinson for his hard work over the past two years.
On March 14th Jean Peters welcomed members to the Annual Dinner at Bakewell Golf Club where an excellent meal was enjoyed by all.
Indoor Winter Croquet and Winter Walks followed by Pub lunches have kept members entertained over the colder months but they are looking forward to playing on the lawns again when the new season starts in April.
