Minutes April 1945

MINUTES 5th APRIL 1945

This meeting commenced with a few members showing us how to do "forward-rolls" on the Vicarage lawn-this, as can be expected was extremely interesting!
Then came a game of "hide and seek" followed for the rest of the evening by a game of "Kick the bin"-or was it "Kick the Bucket"-a game in which everyone rushes madly in all directions looking as though they were being chased by a ghost!
During these games the less energetic of the members talked or stood around the piano.
We finished with the service taken by the Vicar.

MINUTES 12th APRIL 1945

In the first half of the evening we played rounders-the result being a draw. It was very enjoyable-actually it is much better now that we can be in the open!
Then, for the want of something better to do, we went a walk-one member being injured on the way-explanation-a lively hearted fellow bumped into her and she grazed her hand.
At 9.0 we all went into the Church for a short service taken by the Vicar with an address by the Reverend Andrew Hunt, Chaplain for Youth in the Diocese of Leicester. He spoke about Youth Clubs, Courses for Youth Leadership and Youth Weekends.

MINUTES 19th APRIL 1945

This evening, rounders was played again-the rules differing slightly from those of last week!

Members have now begun to drift back to the good old billiard table-it makes a welcome change from merely chatting until the majority arrive at about 7.30. At one time everyone used to be on time!
After the rounders, we chatted in the Club Room while one or two members finished up some lemonade, one even got out a brush and did some useful work!
We finished with the prayers and hymn, taken by the Vicar.

MINUTES 26th APRIL 1945

This evening we played "Hot Rice" in the field after which most of us were completely "fagged out". Then, at about 8.30, we went into the Club Room where we chatted, while some members (the minority naturally) played table-tennis or billiards.
Then came a game of "Spinning the Plate" or whatever one likes to call it, with forfeits. Some were amusing, others the standard ones!
We finished, of course, with the service taken by the Vicar, with Mrs Becher playing the piano in the absence of anyone in the Club who can play hymns.
