‘It was great fun!’ said guests who came to the July edition of ‘In the Ballroom’, the monthly social tea at the Jury Street Court House. Instead of the usual talk and quiz, this time it was a Games Afternoon.
It started with Unlocking Warwick’s Gina calling the numbers for a round of Bingo, which ended in a dead-heat result with three of the guests calling out ‘Bingo’ simultaneously.
Then swiftly on to a quick-fire Beetle drive – six rounds of the dice-throwing game, with a prize (a Warwick souvenir mug) going to the player with the highest accumulated score, and a booby prize for the player with the lowest score.
Volunteers then served tea and cake before each table of players chose their own table-top games, including yahtzee, happy families and tiddly-winks.
There was also a drawing table where former art teacher Barbara helped guests to attempt drawings of flowers and vases.
‘In the ballroom’ is organised by Unlocking Warwick on behalf of the Town Council. It costs just £2 per person, to cover the cost of refreshments. Next month it will be held from 2pm to 4.30pm on Thursday 17th August, with a talk entitled ‘Photographic Memories’. All are welcome.
If you know of a Warwick resident who would particularly appreciate getting out to meet new people, listen to a interesting talk, and enjoy some tea or coffee, and cake, why not bring them along to our social group, ‘In the Ballroom’.
