The Band are now back to full rehearsals, whilst continuing to take Covid precautions, and are looking forward to gradually returning to normal, realistically, though, it will be some months before any indoor performances are possible.
As the country has moved progressively out of Lockdown we have more or less succeeded in reinstating our full programme of short, half day and all day walks and both existing and new members have been turning out with growing confidence. I personally recently sampled one of our Thursday morning walks; this was a shade less than 6 miles. The expectations that I had for this walk, from Ab Kettleby in this case, were all met including being well led by one of our many experienced walk leaders Paul. The bonus on this occasion was the prospect of sharing a well earnt lunch at the villages Sugar Loaf Inn with fellow walkers. A timely reminder that quite apart from the obvious health and fitness aspects that the sociability and camaraderie of Rambling remains intact! We continue to experience and indeed welcome newcomers to our ranks, many new faces have come across us via our Facebook page. Here you can find out a little more about us and find more detailed information about our walks programme.
Anyone is welcome to come along and learn the basics of table tennis, all ages and abilities are welcome, especially people who have never picked up a bat. Why don’t you try it? What’s the worst that could happen?
The Kibworth Art Lovers are emerging from the latency imposed by Covid restrictions with an exhibition of their work to be held, by kind invitation of Roger and Nan Whiteway, at their venue opposite the Kibworth Co-op. The exhibition will take place on Friday 24, Saturday 25, and Sunday 26 September and will feature original paintings for viewing and for sale.
There have been 3 further races in the Reunion League since our last update. Race 2 in the series was the Joy Cann 5 Mile race hosted by Huncote Harriers. Ten club members were in a field of over 500, with a trio of Ladies leading the way, Lorna Muskett, Abby Davies and Bernadette Owen (1st in Age Category.) The men’s contingent saw Kirit Patel back first, with John Redfearn, Alan Gibson, Jamie Owen and Andy Kemp also completing. Emma Boyd and League Race debutant Tracey Coates made up the Ladies Team.
