Crown-Green-Bowling

 

With numbers on roll reaching a new record high of 940, the months ahead are sure to be busy ones for all the 50+ groups currently in operation at Stone U3A. April will see the Crown Green bowlers and the Croquet players back in action whilst the better weather will surely herald even bigger attendances at other outdoor-based activities such as Walking, Gardening and Hawaiian Canoeing.
