The Avenue Club walking group ended its September walk by playing croquet at Ealing. The group is led by Serge Lourie, a former Richmond Council Leader, and each month it does a different walk starting at The Avenue Club in Kew. Their walk on Thursday, via Kew Gardens and Gunnersbury Park, ending up in Lammas Park where fourteen of the walkers joined in an introduction to croquet, organised by Lindy and assisted by David and Marion, both regular members of the walking group. The session was a huge success, despite a brief interlude of rain at the start, which Lindy took advantage of to give a talk about how to play in the White Room, followed by one and a half hours of croquet on half lawns in the sunshine. The session had been requested by Serge following a similar event last year and may become a regular feature of the walking calendar.
