The Lawrence Croquet Club members held their Christmas party at the Lawrence Tavern on Thursday last week.
Around 25 members attended the lunch, enjoying each other’s company and getting into the festive spirit.
Croquet Club spokesperson Karen Marsden said that the group plays croquet two days a week, on Tuesday and Thursday, at the Lawrence Golf Club.
“It’s a social club which gets everyone out and about instead of sitting at home,” Karen said.
“It gives a lot of people who would normally not have any social interaction a chance to get out and enjoy both a physical and social activity.
“We have a luncheon once a month and it’s just a fun, social get together where people can have a few laughs and make new friends.
“The first game is free so anyone who’s interested can just come along and try it out, because they’ll love it.
“We’re having a bit of a break over the Christmas period and will be starting back up in February.
“It’s just a bit too dry, hot and smoky at the moment, so we decided to have a bit of a recess until next year,” she said.
