As scheduled, the CPR and Defibrillator Refresher (Zoom) will begin at 19.45 hrs. (7.45p.m.) on Tuesday 23rd February and the refresher will be given by Mark Faulkner who delivered the original instruction in 2018.
We are very fortunate to have Mark, a senior manager and adviser in the Medical Directorate of the London Ambulance Service, with us at this very difficult time and we are hoping to reward him with a large audience of members and friends. Those who attended his CPR and defib session at Ajax in 2018 will know what a useful session it was and one that can genuinely enable anyone to save the life of a relative or friend.
Fortunately we have not had occasion to use our defibrillator and so I’m sure that we are all somewhat rusty and need the refresher. Therefore please join the Zoom session if you are able.Find out more »

We do hope you will join us on Tuesday 25th May when we will celebrate this important next step towards normality with our first face to face get-together since last September!
This reunion event will again take the form of a picnic in the historic surroundings of Runnymede.
Here are the details:

Dear TSCC Members,
We have changed the date of the “Guided Walk Around The Lake & Cream Tea” from 22nd June to Friday 2nd July. This is to be able to include members who would find the walk too difficult and would like to use the buggy.
Unfortunately, no buggies were available for 22nd June.
Everyone who put their name down for this event was given a selection of alternative dates and we have settled on 2nd July, this being the only date that all could make.
It occurred to us that with the change of date it may be that other members who could not make the original date may now wish to join us on 2nd July.
If you couldn’t make the original date but would like to come on the 2nd July please let Jackie know as soon as possible.
Led by an experienced Painshill guide, this gentle walk around the Serpentine Lake will enable you to
take in a series of simply stunning views while discovering more about the garden’s history and its
creator, the Honourable Charles Hamilton. The entire walk is on the flat, along wide accessible
pathways. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by a relaxing opportunity to get
together and chat whilst seated at reserved tables under an open sided marquee overlooking the
garden. A bottomless supply of tea will be provided, accompanied by a tasty scone with jam and cream.
Flyer now available.

Dear TSCC Members,
Following the success of the 2020 cruise last week it is proposed that we broadly repeat the same format for next year.
The proposal is for the Cruise to take place from Monday 12th July commencing again at Boveney followed by one night at Cookham (next year in the lock moorings below the weir), two nights at Hurley with the usual games afternoon, Friday at Sonning and the possibility of a VIP visit to the Fawley Steam Museum near Henley on the Saturday or Sunday if we can organise this (they only offer these at the weekends).
Mark and Jackie have booked a boat from Kris Cruisers from Monday 12th July but warn that this company is already heavily booked for 2021 and so anyone who would like to hire a boat for the cruise would need to act quickly.
If you would like to take part in this cruise please let me know.
Please park on Fairmile Park Road with consideration for the neighbours

This relaxing Sunday afternoon event will take place in the Amphitheatre, a large oval lawn in the centre
of the Park cocooned all round by banks of trees. Musical entertainment will be provided by the Sarah
Jane Eveleigh Jazz Quartet who have built a strong reputation in and around the south east over the
past few years with their exciting and varied repertoire and captivating performances. Led by Sarah Jane
Eveleigh, a passionate vocalist and storyteller with a mastery of jazz timing, the band features a talented
line-up including dynamic jazz pianist Andy Walls, accomplished double bass player Mike Bennett and
respected drummer Andrew Eveleigh. They will entertain with array of jazz and Latin standards as well
as reworkings of some contemporary classics.
They will play two 60 minute sets, the first from 1.00pm – 2.00pm and the second from 3.00pm – 4.00pm
with an hour’s break during which a leisurely picnic and convivial conversation can be enjoyed.
Bring your own chairs and picnic. In the unlikely event that you run out of liquid refreshment, a prosecco
van and mobile bar will be on hand to provide emergency back-up supplies!
It is a bit of a walk from the entrance to the amphitheatre so we have obtained exclusive use of a shuttle
buggy to ferry all members not wishing to proceed on foot.
