Events

Please use our contact page to request more details.

I hope you will be able to join us for some or all of the following events that have been planned:

Poker!

Calling any and all poker players…

We have a group of women within Women’s Link who are as keen as mustard to learn how to play poker and host poker evenings. But we need a teacher (someone helpfully suggested Victoria Coren Mitchell…). Is there a woman (or women) in the group who could, and would be willing to confidentially teach us? Initially we would meet in Cambridge (or just outside) but this could be expanded if we had suitable venues.

If either teaching or hosting appeals, do please be in touch via the contact page.

Thank you!

Ten Pin Bowling, Stevenage 

When: 2nd Tuesday monthly at 7.15 pm – next meet Tuesday 14 May 2019

Please come along to our bowling meet (held monthly every 2nd Tuesday) at Stevenage Hollywood Bowl, Stevenage Leisure Park, , Six Hills Way, SG1 2UA. Could we have confirmed names please so I can book (and pay for!) the lanes. If you would like to come along, or would like further details, please be in touch via the contact page so you can be added to our bowling WhatApp group, by the Sunday prior to the Tuesday. The cost for a couple of games is dependent on how many are bowling – our inaugural meet brought 13 of us along, we had the VIP lanes (!) with a drink thrown in and was just under £12.50.
