Members of Crewkerne & District Twinning Association and their friends had fun at eyes down for a full hand of playing cards, during their recent fundraising event in the Speedwell Hall. The variation of bingo saw game leader David Poole an associate of Crewkerne twinners and member of the Chard Helmstedt Society, deal each player eight cards at random. The first person to turn over all their cards was declared the winner and moved to the next table in a clockwise direction, with the other players moving tables anti-clockwise. During the half-time interval, a supper of jacket potatoes with a selection of fillings was followed by a delightful choice of home-made puddings.
Crewkerne & District Twinning Association are looking forward to their next social event on Saturday April 13th at the Tithe Barn in Merriott. The evening will include a Ploughmans supper and a chance to have a go at New Age Kurling, a form of the original Curling game that has has been adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth surface other than just on ice. Tickets for the event which begins at 7 pm, cost £7 per person and need to be pre-booked by calling Lorna on 01460 72962 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chairperson Lorna Scudder would also like to hear from anyone who is interested in hosting a French visitor for a few days in May. The association’s twin friends from Igny and Bures-sur-Yvette will be visiting Crewkerne and arriving in the town on Thursday May 30th. A day trip is planned for the Friday, an art exhibition in the museum on the Saturday, with the twinning visit ending with a soiree in the George Reynolds Centre in the evening, before the French party head back home on Sunday June 2nd.
