County Pairs, Sun 29th

We have the County Pairs and Plate at Oxshott this Sunday 29th. A couple of points to note:

  • The clocks go forward this weekend, so the start time is 1pm BST. Please don't be late.
  • And plated teas are no longer provided at Surrey events, so do remember to bring your own (or plan to visit a local convenience store/supermarket).

Additionally, Thames Water has an emergency road closure in place on the main A244 through Oxshott, just west of Steels Lane. Access from the A3 to the Village Hall on Holtwood Road is via Goldrings Road (1st right after the station railway bridge, then 1st left into Holtwood Road). Travel from Leatherhead/M25 J9 is unaffected.

March newsletter
The March newsletter incorrectly says that Ulla Adilz & Pam Jardine were the winners of the Ladies pairs. The winners are Norma Macmillan & Bobbie Johnson. Apologies to Norma & Bobbie for the mistake.
