Historic Walks

With Gold Accredited guide Gill Girard

Report from Edith, out historic walks corespondent follows:

As ever Gill was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and professional as she took us on a fascinating walk. She had a wealth of information at her fingertips and plenty of stories about her husband's family experience of the Occupation. Twenty-two (14 members and 8 non-members) of us enjoyed learning more about our history and then enjoyed a lovely dinner at Village East. The experience was voted a great success.

Fishing

With Richard Seager (Skipper)
On his boat - 'Out of the Blue'

Report from Kenny, our fishing corespondent follows:

The Guernsey Scottish Association, annual fishing trip took place on Tuesday the 3rd of September, and what an evening it was.

We were fortunate to enjoy calm conditions and beautiful late summer sun.

12 members, friends and family boarded Richard Seager’s ‘Out The Blue’ at 5pm for three hours of excellent fishing.

There was a mixture of novices and more seasoned sea anglers.

Everyone on board caught fish and all went home with a feed.

Numerous Black bream, Mackerel, a few Horse mackerel and a couple of Red gurnards went into the box.

Paul Murphy claimed the sweep for the largest fish, a handsome Black Bream.
It’s an excellent way to spend an evening. If you haven’t tried it before,  I would recommend giving it some serious consideration  for the future.

Until next year.

Tight lines .

2nd November

Rugby World Cup Finals breakfast

Charity - The Guernsey Island Games Association
Fund raising - Sweepstakes

A happy band of rugby supporters met at The Duke of Richmond Hotel and were well looked after for breakfast and to watch England play South Africa in the final of the Rugby World Cup which was being played in Japan.

The contest was nothing less than attritional with the first casualty leaving the field after less than 5 minutes! An early South African penalty and England were left playing catch up as further penalties were exchanged.

Late in the game the South Africans scored a couple of well taken tries which saw them walk off justifiable victors … and world champions.

 
28th December

GSA/U3A Snow Ball

Our 10th Snow Ball and our 3rd with the U3A was again a resounding success. St Martin’s Community Centre is a super venue that suits us well and where we are well looked after.
Numbers were good despite a few being away and others hors de combat ... get well soon Lyn and Katherine. We fussed over the dance programme, going a tad off piste by omitting a few of the old regulars ... dances not dancers! but it worked.
We simplified the running of the raffle and raised £145 for Les Bourgs Hospice
The rules for the finger buffet are simple ... bring enough food plus some, bring food that suits your dietary requirements and be prepared to share. A tried and tested format that works with everyone well fed and room to spare!
All in all great value at £10/head and a great success. Why not join us for the fun next year?
