The Friends are considering future events and would like your input

Safari Supper

Several years ago, we decided to cease the Safari Suppers as people felt that they had run their course.   However, since then we have had to suffer isolation due to the dreadful COVID.  It has been suggested to us that it would be a nice idea to meet again.

We therefore discussed the form that it might take. 

We feel that a cold November evening is not a good idea and that we should either make it a Safari lunch or meet in early summer when the evenings are longer.

We also felt that the average age of the participants is rather high and that we should encourage younger people from a wider circle.  We would therefore aim to reach out to a wider Bovingdon audience

We reckon 2 courses is enough followed by a communal gathering for coffee/tea when could mingle and chat.  At this stage we would pass the envelopes hoping for contributions (sorry but money is at the root of all our activities as we are still collecting for internal refurbishment)

If you have any views/comments/suggestions, please get in touch with me.

Murder Mystery

Murder Mysteries are very popular, and we would like to hold such an evening in the Memorial Hall sometime in 2023.  We have held tentative discussions with experts and the one thing that we have learned is that we will need people – people who are prepared to role play – if not actually act.  It could be a lot of fun and we will be grateful for volunteers – so please have a have think about it as we seek to find out more.

We look forward to hearing from you

With best wishes
