EDWI Croquet Fun

Our August meeting saw us meeting up at Dulwich Sports Club for a game of Croquet and a Summer picnic. Lucky for us the Sun came out and stayed out! Much better than last year. In True WI style, we put on quite a spread for the picnic too, thanks to all of you for bringing along some tasty mid-match treats!

We received a very nice email from Guy Scurfield, the President, of Dulwich Croquet Club to say how impressed they were with our croquet skills and looks forward to seeing you again on the lawns.
The standard of play was high and the some games were close, but following a hard fought final which took place in the fading light, congratulations go to the winners of the Croquet Challenge who were:
