## Skittles Practice night

Thursday 11th May saw our first practice night with 10 of us having a go and playing a friendly game. With both experienced and new players attending we were rewarded with teas, coffees, cake and biscuits.

Our next practice evenings are on Thursdays 25th May, 9th June and 29th June. They are open to ladies and gents of any ability. £1.50 including refreshments.
