Whist Drive – don’t know how to play – We can teach you :-)

Chesham house new branding


Two of our lovely volunteers have started a Whist Drive

Every Thursday 18th August 2.00pm to 4.00pm

This is a fun group, playing a card game which will be more about the social side than taking the game too seriously.

A group of people meeting up to spend some time together to enjoy a game of cards.

No need to book, just come along and join in.

Ladies and gents welcome, cost will be £2.00 for the afternoon which includes tea/coffee and biccies.

Creative Writing Group (The Chesham Scribblers)
Every Wednesday   2.00pm to 4.00pm
This is a fun weekly Scribble Group which will be as much about the social side of such gatherings.
No criticism, corrections or judgements made – just a group of people meeting up to spend some time together writing about various things. Sometimes serious, sometimes sad, often funny but always entertaining and enjoyable.
No need to book, just come along and join in.

Summer evening stroll

Volunteers and supporters turned out in force to help raise money on our ‘Pier to the Perch with your Pooch’ summer solstice walk. The evening sun shone on us as we left Worthing pier, heading for the Perch on Lancing Beach Green. Our four legged friends sported their specially made bandanas and we enjoyed a gentle walk along the seafront.
Our thanks go to all those involved, including our St John’s Ambulance first aiders, our local Lancing pet shop for supplying bags of dog treats and the Perch for opening for us at the finish line. Photos courtesy of Gary Levett.
Same time next year…
