This event is no longer available.

Come along and let the ladies of Golcar Croquet Club coach you to play croquet where they can teach you the basics.. If you have played before come along and have a few games. All equipment is supplied.

Croquet is an outdoor lawn game where each player uses a mallet to knock their ball through the wickets (small wire hoops) to score points. The object of the game is to be the first player to knock the ball through all the wickets and end by striking the final stake, a thin, striped pole usually placed just beyond the last wicket. Though first played by the peasantry in France in the thirteenth century, croquet became somewhat of a game of the upper class in England and Ireland in the 1800's. Now it is a game played worldwide by many people.

Afterwards we’ll enjoy a cream tea.

Please wear flat shoes and bring a waterproof jacket if appropriate.

What an amazing time we had at the Spice National Weekend, particularly at the sea-themed fancy dress party. The photo shows the winners of the fancy dress competition: Angela, Helen, and the overall winner was Spice Yorkshire's very own Peter Knox, dressed as the Titanic, complete with the fateful iceberg! Peter also won the blackjack competition. Other Yorkshire winners included Yvonne, who won a fabulous flamingo at Bingo Bango, and Gill was on the winning team in the quiz! There are lots more photos of the weekend in this album. We're already working on a new National Weekend for next summer, so look out for that soon.

The photo shows us at the Nidd Gorge Viaduct near Harrogate on Sunday. We timed it just right as the rain had passed before our walk. Afterwards we enjoyed Sunday lunch at the Boar's Head in Ripley.

We had a great time on Saturday at the Summer Party with over 60 of us remembering the 70s and 80s at our big celebration. The photo shows many of us in fancy dress. From hippies to punks, it looks like all are having fun! There are lots more photos from the night (including the space hoppers) in the July photo album.
