Come On Mondays Enjoy Togetherness
COMET meets every Monday in the church hall between 2 & 4pm. with the exception of Bank Holidays and occasional Church Events.
Our aim is for our members to enjoy their afternoon with good company, conversations and activities to suit everyone.
We achieve this by serving tea, coffee, biscuits and sweets, and then the chatting and conversing just happens!
After about 45 minutes, the ladies, and sometimes a few gents play the "All Time Favourite" Rummikub, or other games we have on offer.
Pool and Snooker are the favourites for the men, but we do have Table Tennis and Darts available.
We plan to have at least two Fish and Chip Lunches each year, usually in February and October. In August we have our summer outing, plans are afoot for a great outing this summer. In 2013 we enjoyed a "Cream Tea River Cruise" on The Lady of Lee Valley. The weather was kind to us and we had a truly memorable afternoon.
In addition, on several occasions each year, some of our members enjoyed the generosity and hospitality of the Hoddesdon Rotary Club. These events are very much enjoyed and greatly appreciated.
It is lovely to see a few of our members attending church services from time to time, and also supporting Church Events.
Our aim for the future is to continue as we are, enjoying each other’s company, and welcoming new members. We now have eight married couples in the club, and our total membership has risen to forty three, most come very regularly indeed! We look forward to the future with alacrity. Thinking of resources and facilities gives real food for thought and planning. Our Pool and Snooker tables are old and VERY heavy, we are finding it increasingly difficult to manage them. The plan is to look for some that are easier to move around.
Finally we want to thank all who support the club, especially those who drive our less able members to and from their homes.
Here are a few comments from our members:
- I always feel welcome
