The Friday Club.
We are so lucky to be able to meet as a group on Fridays for coffee, chat, good company and good food. We are made welcome at the Appley Manor near Ryde, where we can meet regularly. The group will meet on the first and third Fridays of each month. Arrive at about 11am and leave whenever you like.

“Friday Club”

It is such a pleasure to see that so many friends get together for Fridays meetings. Arrive about 11. Coffee tea or soft drinks. I noticed that some people have a large glass of red wine. Then we all put the world to rights for a while before a raffle is drawn. (All prizes being donated on the day.) Time is then spent studying the menu before ordering meals. I think lots of people enjoy the excellent roast dinner, beautifully prepared and great value. There are various dishes to suit all tastes and appetites. The sweets are ‘to die for’ as the saying goes.

It is really great to have such a well supported and enjoyable group to look forward to.

I would like to thank Sarah, our host at Appley Manor and all the staff for their kindness putting up with us and always having such a good 'Specials Board'.

Members of the Friday Club enjoying the Club's open golf tournament at Puckpool Park.
Upon arrival at the park we were offered a set of one club for each member and headed off to the first hole on the international 18 hole course (Crazy Golf Course). Unfortunately, several members caught sight of the cream tea's and dropped out of the tournament. Well, we all dropped out in fact and sat and just enjoyed the scones, jam and lashings of cream. We hope to make the 'Open' a regular event for the club.
