During what is a very strange time for us all we have managed to keep in touch with regular challenges and our first lockdown quiz! Our members have also taken part in some of the challenges set by National such as the Bake Off and Snapshot challenges.

With the help of committee members, we have set weekly challenges including cookery, photography and exercise. We started with Seb and George challenging us to get out and about to capture photos of nature, this proved to be a very popular challenge with lots of entries. All the photos can be found on either our Facebook or Instagram page.

The following week Becky and Hannah set us the challenge of exercising the 78-mile distance between the 4 clubs in Berkshire, this could be done in any form of exercise (walking, horse riding, cycling etc). Unfortunately, that week it rained most of the time meaning less members took part, however we still completed the challenge with a few miles to spare!

Alice and Summer then challenged us to make or bake something Red, White and Blue for VE Day Anniversary celebrations.

We are all very enthusiastic in channelling our inner Alan Titchmarsh in growing our pumpkins, we look forward to the big weigh in later on in the year to see who’s the most green fingered out of all of us!

A few weeks ago we had our first virtual quiz on Zoom, the questions were made up by all committee members and split into 5 rounds; General Knowledge, Sport, Film & TV, Agriculture and Lyrics. Lots of members attended and it was a great opportunity to catch up with each other since our last ‘real’ meeting in March. We all enjoyed the quiz and are looking forward to our next one.

We’re busy making plans for our first meeting back whenever that may be!

Stay safe!
