Stroke Club anniversary

Bridgnorth Stroke Club, who recently celebrated their 20th anniversary, enjoyed their Christmas lunch at the Punchbowl at the end of last year.  At the lunch, the club’s secretary was presented with a cheque for £2,200 from John McCormick, whose father Bill was a member of the club. John raised the money by completing a remarkable sponsored cycle ride from Bridgnorth to Barmouth in September

Spokesperson David Jones says, “It’s a journey of 90 miles and indeed this is the third time John has completed this challenge for the club. He’s usually accompanied by his friend Nick Skidmore by way of encouragement and support.

“Donations such as this are enormously helpful as the club is largely self –funding.”

The Club is looking forward to a full programme of events for this year, including talks, demonstrations and entertainment. In May there is a trip to Abbey-Cwm-Hir House and Gardens, Llandrindod Wells, while July sees a trip to Llandudno, and September brings the annual club holiday, this year to Somerset. The group meets the second Tuesday of each month at Greenfields Court in Bridgnorth, between 2 and 4pm, and new members are always welcome. For details, ring 01746 764240 or 07850 196267.
