The County used to produce newsletters called Bulletins. Roy went to a lot of effort to collect all those still in existence and put them on the County website under the heading AS WE ONCE WERE. Roy was editor for 17 issues of these but sadly only managed to upload the first 7 before his untimely death. All of his Bulletins are full of his dry humour and contain lots of amusing reports of his teams' efforts in weekend tournaments. Do look them up on www.staffsandshrops.org.uk

A very enjoyable evening was had by all, whilst raising money for this very worth while cause.
7 teams took part, bringing a lovely spread of food for all to share and we played point-a-board scoring.
Winning team with 18.5 points from a maximum of 24 was Ray and Shirley Stubbs with Marion Jordan and Barbara Tams - well done.
Second was Tracy's team with 15.5 points, third was John Bridge's team with 12 points and everyone else was close behind with 9 or 10 points.
Total raised was £140.00 from table money, plus some additional money from donations and the guess the card competition. Final figure will be published once verified by the trust (the tin in sealed, so we don’t know exactly how much).
Thank you to everyone involved, especially with the washing up.
