We'll be opening the clubhouse doors early to allow members & guests to gather together and watch the coronation shown live on our giant TV screens.

Enjoy the delights of music played in the traditional & bluegrass way by Chris Lawrance and his collection of musical maestros from around the local area.

Some of the finest fiddlers and string pluckers in the region descend on The Green for an old-time music session once a month - and it's always worth a listen.

The gang usually get going from around 8.30pm at the latest. Come along and have a drink while you sit back and enjoy the toe-tapping sounds.

Join Us For A Cuppa & A Chat - Free Community Event, All Welcome
The fantastic community-focused fixture that is T@TheGreen continues .

Our community get-together continues between 10am and 12noon on every second and fourth Thursday morning of each month.

Completely free to attend and personally hosted, everyone in the local community is welcome to pop by or stay for the whole two hours; whichever is most appealing.

Have a chat with other folk from around the village and surrounding areas, or simply sit back, relax and take in the calming view across The Green from our bright and airy clubhouse facility - while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee and some light refreshments.

SUN MAY 14: Monthly Quiz Night, 7.45pm start

LGCC's Monthly Quiz Night is next to be held a week later than usual, due to the Coronation Weekend.

So it's thinking caps on this time for Sunday May 14 evening, with quiz teams being made up of any number you'd like to bring; the entry fee of £2 per person divided between the top performers.

It's a very fun, informal evening, nothing too heavy - but enough to get you thinking. New players are always very welcome, whether forming a full team or simply coming along and joining in with others.

There's also a Spot Prize or two along the way, with the bar open from around 7.00pm.

Come along and enjoy a relaxed yoga session under the watchful eye of a qualified tutor, every Thursday evening inside the LGCC clubhouse.

Co-ordinator Glennis Taylor will be only too happy to welcome you along to a friendly group of like-minded folk.

Mats are available to use should you not possess your own, and the group often stay behind for a quick drink after the clubhouse opens to others at 8.00pm.

A number of end-of-season tournaments are now taking place as the Darts season moves into Spring and also Summer Leagues action.
Some are in-house at LGCC, while others are competitions involving players from all local teams - most of those events are held at Hemel Stags Rugby Club, Pennine Way.
