your guide to the latest events in Inkpen


The Inkpen market was held in March and had a fair number of visitors. Sadly, there will be no market in April or the next few months beyond, due to the coronavirus. As soon as the market can be started up again you will find out via the Bulletin. Thank you to all who have regularly supported the market over the years, and we hope to see you again, perhaps by the end of the summer.


Again, meetings are suspended following the Covid-19 outbreak. We hope it won't be too long before we can bring back an interesting and stimulating series of meetings. Keep watching here for news. Thank you for your support.

Stitch and knit

It is now 3 years since we decided to see if there was enough interest in Inkpen to introduce Carpet Bowls to the village. From the very first meeting we have never looked back with sufficient members attending each week, allowing five or six games to be played (eight players to a game) and still have plenty of time for gossip.

Prior to January the stock excuse for a poor running bowl was that the floor was uneven. Now with the Village Hall floor having been refurbished that excuse has gone. Surprise! Surprise! we still have the same number of poor running bowls, but the excuse has changed to the "sugar rush" from the regular supply of celebratory cake provided by members with birthdays or other notable personal events.

Regrettably, like most other clubs in the village, we have had to postpone all meetings until the Coronavirus has run its course and we are back to some semblance of order.

As with most situations the timing is to the benefit of some and the detriment of others. To date, this month, Kathy Foster, has a cumulative score way in excess of most other players and would have been our top player for the month. This would have knocked some of our more dedicated players, me included, off their perch when the monthly prizes were given out. Sorry Kathy! It is not to be.

Thinking about joining? Then watch this space and we will let you know when play resumes or do contact Sandy or Anne on 01488 668336
