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.
Although we have had to suspend meetings during the Covid-19
pandemic, Stitch and Knit still offers you things to do, but in
the confines of your own home. Have a look at the News page or give me a call

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
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.
