A special August pub night was at the Six Bells in St Albans, with a beer-tasting festival and barbecue. Other pub nights were at the Chequers, Redbourn, with an optional meal beforehand; at the Rose and Crown, Sandridge; and at the William IV, St Albans. There was also a Friday night get-together for members old and new at the Speckled Hen on the Hatfield Road. Members also joined the regular Monday night pub quiz. The first Tuesday lunch was at a pub in St Albans.

Members wanting to keep fit joined the Zumba Gold class in Hatfield, and walkers went on a 4-5 mile walk from Redbourn, and a Bank Holiday walk by the canal in Hertford, with drinks in a pub afterwards. Dancers went to the dance-club at Edgware.

Days out included a short walk to the Festival Garden at Ayletts Nursery; a visit to Bletchley Park war-time code-breaking centre; a trip to Hatfield House, with its garden and park; and a visit to the Flamstead Scarecrow Festival. There was also a plant-swap and tea in a member’s garden, and a Sunday morning brunch in another member’s garden.

Coming Up in September

In September our pub nights will be at the White Horse in Shenley; the Prae Wood Arms in St Albans, with optional meal beforehand; at the Garibaldi in St Albans; and at The Gate in Bricketwood. Members will join the usual Monday night quiz in the pub on the Hatfield Road. Our club’s first Tuesday lunch will be in a pub in St Albans.

Dancers will go to a masked ball at the dance club in Edgware.

Days out will include visits to the Rolling Stones exhibition in Chelsea; to an exhibition in Cuffley to commemorate the bringing down of a German airship there; to the classic and vintage car show at Capel Manor in Enfield; to Waddesdon Manor by coach; and to the St Albans Beer and Cider Festival. There will also be an afternoon tea in a member’s garden in St Albans.

Evening entertainment will include the film “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week” at Campus West in Welwyn Garden City; an event to celebrate the 1981 winning of the Eurovision Song Contest by Bucks Fizz; and a new production of “The Threepenny Opera” at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City.

There may be even more events added to our September programme, as quite often late events are submitted by members and sent round to all members by our special Pilot email.

If you think you would enjoy some of these events, please contact our New Members’ Co-ordinator, through the contact box on the main page of this website, for further details. You can attend three events before joining the club.
