I was hoping to report of a friendly match with a win for Cambridge Park this morning. However, even though the fixture was confirmed by Sunbury, it did not make their fixture list. Oh! We’ve all made mistakes.
Still, it was a good job it was the fixture was scheduled for home as our team stayed to have a roll up, which is good practise for the season ahead. It was also good for the voters to have something to watch whilst queueing. We had a few interested during the evening who stopped to watch for longer after they’d voted.
Well done and thanks to Jane for opening up and closing up on what was a very long polling day.
It is very bright and sunny now, so a chance to nip down to the morning roll up and share a drink or two with fellow members at the end of the session.
I stand corrected on the wild garlic which isn’t actually wild garlic but a form of French bluebell. Maybe the wild garlic comes later in the year? It used to produce a really strong waft of garlic as one walked from the car park to the clubhouse.
Val F (of green fingers and honey fame) came up with a tree suggestion for Lynde House to plant – an Amelanchier ‘La Paloma’ which is a small tree with bronze spring foliage and white star shaped blossom. In autumn, theleves turn orange/red. She also suggested that planting in the grass area just behind “Rita’s Garden” would be a good place as it could be seen from the clubhouse alll year round.
So Lynde House are going to look into that and acers to select something for us. Thanks, Val.
