Pride of Swindon Award 2011

Swindon Croquet Club was nominated for a Pride of Swindon award for its work with the Healthy Lives Groups.  These are groups for people who have had heart attacks or strokes, emphysema etc., to encourage them to live more healthy lives. Club members go along at the end of each 6 week session (about 6 times a year in total) to show them how to play indoor croquet, and to encourage them to take up the sport.  They all enjoy the indoor sessions, and it was for these that the Lifestyle co-ordinator recommended the club. 

Five Swindon members went to collect the award; Joan Bizley, Arthur Ingersoll, Neil Morrison, Mary Bedells and Roger Bedells
