On September 12, 2016, in the afternoon just after the Umbrella game had finished a  helicopter landed on the green. A medical emergency somewhere nearby required the services of the helicopter and our green was the only area big enough for it to land.

                                         Christmas Dinner - 2017

The Christmas Dinner this year was catered for us by Steve from the BIBC and his many helpers. Entertainment afterwards was from the Bristol Ukulele Club Band who played and sang a medley of Christmas hits from the past. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

         Congratulations to Mary Bidgood on reaching 90.

As she had to leave early on the day, the captain said that she was going to ‘pop off now’, hopefully a slip of the tongue.
