Alderney Sporting Memories celebrate their 5th Anniversary
Prama's Sporting Memories group have just celebrated their 5th anniversary on Saturday 2nd October 2021 at Alderney Social Club in Poole. Sporting memories is a group where people who are keen sporting fans are able to come together and share their memories, take part in quizzes, indoor bowls, curling or darts.
The members of the group meet at the Alderney Social Club in Poole every week, where they are welcomed by staff and supporters from the club, a generously large portion of the venue was made available to the group for the anniversary.
Group leader, Judith Bacon said:
"The celebrations began with a sporting quiz which was brilliantly presented by helpers Val and Pete who provide this regularly for us. There was then a slightly more serious tone as we remembered 2 England World Cup football greats, Jimmy Greaves and Roger Hunt, who had recently passed away. Things became more raucous when the upcoming World Boxing Title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury was put under the spotlight. Tea and a beautifully made sports themed cake, created by supporter Jean, was enjoyed by everybody. People have been able to enjoy good times of fun, camaraderie, and a common love of sports over the past 5 years."
Thanks to Bridget Barrett and Judith Bacon, this group is made possible for members to come along every other Saturday from 10:00 - 12:00, creating a sense of community for local residents. New members are always welcome, please give Judith or Ian a ring on 0753 850 2740 if you want any more info.
