March 2024

Here is a round-up of the events at The Swan during March, 2024.

13th March: Quiz Night

Winners this week were Patrick's Posse after Patrick himself managed to win the tie break with Universally Challenged. Sheila Allen held the winning raffle ticket and scooped a packet of crisps! The jackpot therefore rolls over to £40 at the next quiz on Wed 27 Mar.

16th March: Cycle Hub

The weather was nice this morning, so we had plenty of visitors, regulars & volunteers to lay on 2 Level 3 rides up to Windsor Great Park today. Our Level 2 regulars all rode up Heartbreak Hill, by the Valley Gardens, without getting off. Now we know they can all use their gears, we'll be adding some more to future rides. They all qualify as Level 3 riders now & and extra hearty lunch back at the Swan in Clewer

It was a corker of a Bingo Night last night with our biggest turnout yet! The Bingo Gods shined on a packed Coach House with prizes for 7 different players, and first-timer Amanda walked off with the Top of the Bill' cash pot of £20! Our next Bingo session is on 18th April at 8pm - it promises to be a big one so book your table now!

22nd March: Coffee Morning

It was our monthly coffee morning in aid this year of King George VI Day Centre. We were a week early due to Easter next week. Huge thanks to the volunteers who baked, served and otherwise helped out to make this a real success. Also thanks to the Chatty Café team, the King George VI Day Centre team, and all of the Friends of The Swan for you support. We raised £261.84. FANTASTIC!

22nd March: Royal Borough Radio

This is an Internet radio station of the Windor & Maidenhead area. It describes itself as 'A small non-profit Online community Radio Station for the RBWM area run by volunteers'. It can be accessed via this link.

One of our Chatty Café co-hosts - Trudy Lowe - was interviewed for the first Friday afternoon show that focusses on community events and achievements. The host was XXX. During the conversation Trudy described the success of this at The Swan and how other local areas could benefit from it too. Listen here:

27th March: Quiz Night

Last night's quiz had 73 participants, seated both in the bar and out in the Coach House. It was won by Patrick's Posse who made it two in a row. Denby won a house spirit and mixer in the raffle, so next week's jackpot rolls over to £50.
