Sports and Social Night

The Sports and Social Night at the Argles village hall on September 21st was a great success, both with adults and children. The pictures show some of the games such as Darts, a Shuling board, and a Dice board. The “knock out” Table Tennis proved we have budding Olympians in our midst. Everyone joined in with the Bingo, giving a short rest from the other more energetic games and waited for the heart stopping moment to find the Bingo winner!

The Shuling board which had been gathering dust in the Village Hall store room proved particularly popular. It good to see some of these old “Pub games” are still as popular today as they always were. The Hall committee are intending to repeat the night in the Spring, hoping also that it might become a more regular event and the news will spread about how enjoyable an evening it was.
