Summer Celebration Fiesta - July 2022

Since Pétanque is popular throughout Europe, Spain was the theme of our Summer Celebration last year. So it was sombreros, maracas and lace fans which appeared out of the fancy dress box and for the tortilla to be washed down with chilled cava. Being the hottest day of the year, the event was held in the evening. Pat won the smash the egg competition with a deft toss of her boule.

Theatre Outing 

In April, one of our members, Bev Harris performed in Milton Musical Society's 'Chess the Musical' as the Arbiter's Assistant who referees the match.  

Sir Tim Rice, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus from Abba had created a musical where the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics, and international intrigues. The score included 'One Night in Bangkok',  'I Know Him so Well', 'Heaven Help My Heart', 'Nobody’s Side', 'Someone Else’s Story” and 'Anthem'.
